Being a Latte drinker I have always found an Espresso shot of coffee a little too intense for my liking, although the popularity of our Flavia Barista coffee machine shows I am possibly in the minority. The days of traditional pleasures being appreciated as exactly that seems to be numbered as a number of variations to the Espresso experience appear to be taking the world by storm aided by social media, especially Instagram.
So how about Espresso with added tonic water ?!! From as far afield as Germany, Serbia and Japan, outlandish variations are being shared on social media , and possibly enjoyed too , but Espresso coffee, with added tonic water, orange peel, syrup or even a sprig of rosemary will not be on my “to try” list I’m afraid.
Last year my favourite Latte was also under siege from trendy additions with either coconut or almond milk being used along with turmeric, pepper, ginger and goodness knows what supposedly as an aid to digestion as well as acting as an antioxidant and having anti-inflammatory properties. Just cow’s milk for me please!
We have a great range of specialist coffee machines here at KSV Vending so a Cappuccino, Latte, Espresso, Mocha, black, white, or de-caff are all available at the touch of a button, however anything other than sugar to add to it is down to you I’m afraid.
