If you’re getting ready to order a coffee drink at your local café, you’re likely inundated with options. Sometimes the most stressful part of an order isn’t paying, but deciding what to get! With all the recent coffee trends growing in popularity and traditional drinks falling to the back of the line, we’re here to help you narrow down your picks. Is the old-reliable Americano still the most popular? Or maybe whipped coffee is taking the lead!
Although being popular doesn’t mean it’s the best, here are three of the fastest-growing coffee drinks off the menu. Which one is your favorite? Let us know on Instagram or Twitter! We’re always around to talk about coffee.
You may have heard this drink being mentioned pretty frequently in recent years. Give it a taste for yourself and find out why! Cold-brew is an incredible middle ground between iced coffee and those looking for a little more flavor and boost.
As you know, coffee shops are always looking for new drinks to introduce to the menu. Well, cold brew has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for cafes and those brewing at-home. With its unique flavor and brewing process, even cocktail bars have found ways to include the delectable drink that is cold brew.
Next on our list is an oldie but a goodie. The cappuccino has been around for some time, with each year growing in popularity. As an espresso-based drink topped with steamed milk foam, it feels like this coffee drink checks all the boxes.
Becoming popular in the 1980’s, cappuccinos hit the coffee scene with a splash. 20 years later, they continue to rank in the top three of the most popular coffee drinks. You can’t go wrong with the classics!
Last on our list but certainly not least is flat white coffee. Haven’t heard of it before? You may be surprised by just how many cafes rank this as their most popular item! Flat white is essentially a coffee drink that consists of espresso with microfoam. Although many don’t see the main differences between flat white and a latte, it all lies up-top. One would typically serve a latte with foamed milk (around 5mm) sitting on top, while a flat white has a skinny layer instead.
It might not sound like a significant change, but give it a shot – you’ll taste the difference!
