You must have noticed that the world is turning coconuts?! If not, then frankly, we don’t know what planet you’ve been on! From coconut coffee to coconut hair masks, it’s everywhere you look!
The World Has Gone Coconut Mad!
Since 2010, the number of coconut flavoured food and drink products brought to market globally has increased by 121%, and it’s not slowing down either. The market is growing at 17% per year! Despite its rapid popularity, coconut is definitely not a fad. It’s vegan, dairy free, gluten free, and makes the perfect dairy alternative thanks to its creamy quality. Coconuts are full of hydrating water and antioxidants, whilst coconut fat is the kind they call ‘good fat’! Not to mention it tastes hella good!
What is Coconut used for?
You may not know, but a coconut is a seed and a very versatile one at that. It can produce many different products including; milk, water, sugar, flour, oil, flesh and butter. Coconut is mainly used in health, beauty, cosmetics, cooking, baking and aromatherapy. It’s basically no.1 on the useful chart, making it a bit of a hero if you ask us. It balances hormones, improves digestion, moisturises skin, conditions hair, reduces cellulite, decreases wrinkles and age spots, balances blood sugar, improves energy, improves Alzheimer’s, stabilises cholesterol, burns fat and reduces sweet cravings (plus much more). In our eyes, coconut is the cat’s pyjamas.
Coconut & Coffee
Coconut has been described to have flavours from nutty and toasted, through to milky and creamy. To us here at Little’s Coffee, those flavours sounded like the perfect combination to compliment our smooth Arabica coffee. On top of that, the smell and taste of coconut bring back fond memories of our trip to the Cayman Islands a couple of years ago (our friends live there), so we just had to start working on a coconut coffee recipe that brings this crazy new trend into our range.
The creaminess of the coconut adds a smooth and luxurious texture to a cup of joe. For this reason, coconut and coffee seem to be a match made in heaven. Many say it’s our best work yet, and we’d be lying if we didn’t agree with them.
