While 2020 has not been a great year, it has brought us some amazing food and beverage trends. And one drink that’s gotten a lot of attention this year is coffee. Your average cup of Joe has gotten a makeover and coffee is better than it ever has been. These are top five coffee trends to come out of 2020.
Nitro Cold Brew Coffee
They say that cold brew is more popular than hot coffee and when it comes to cold brew, nitro coffee is where it’s at. This coffee has a velvety texture and is less acidic than black coffee. It’s made by shooting cold brew coffee through nitrogen gas through a pressurized valve and then dispensing it through a tap.
Dalgona Whipped Coffee
One of the most popular food and drink trends of 2020, whipped coffee originated in South Korea. To make it all you need is instant coffee, sugar, water, and milk.
People have become more invested in being eco-friendly and when it comes to coffee, they’re interested in the origin of the beans, how they were grown, and who roasted them.
While die hard coffee lovers will argue that decaf isn’t really coffee, more and more people are switching to decaf in an attempt to pay more attention to their health and wellness. This has caused coffee roasters to pay more attention to making high-quality decaf coffee.
There’s a subscription box out there for everything and coffee is no exception. With people working from home and not frequenting coffee shops as often, coffee subscriptions are a great way to get a quality brew at home.
