2022 is fast approaching and with it, a chance to start anew. How do you plan to start the new year on the right foot? For us at Whole Latte Love, it means filling the remaining hours of 2021 and those first new ones of 2022 with delicious coffee recipes. Below you will find a handful to try out. But before we get to those recipes, let’s explore some of the machinery you will need to accomplish them!
Make entertaining an absolute breeze with superautomatic machines like the Gaggia Cadorna Prestige, which keeps delicious espresso a button-touch away. The Cadorna Prestige features 14 pre-programmed beverages so there’s something for everyone! Even your most picky guest can find something they love.
When you’re busy entertaining, you don’t want to worry about anything, especially dosing out perfectly fine espresso grinds. With the Eureka Mignon Specialita in Chrome or White, you can produce up to 1.8g of coffee per second for espresso. In other words, you can produce a barista quality 18g double shot in as little as 10 seconds — ideal for a busy night.
Te Ceado E37S in Black is a stepless grinder, meaning the adjustments you can make are limitless. Plus, with a super quiet 500 watt motor that that tirelessly rotates the E37S's 83mm burrs, you can keep talking to your guests even while grinding. In addition, the Ceado E37S is capable of dispensing your shot at the press of a button within 1/10th of a second. So you can press it and forget it.
If you’re using coffee preparation more as an excuse to avoid your guests (we’ve all been there), then the ECM Automatik 64 allows for more control and experimentation. The stepless grind adjustment allows for fine control over your grind setting, but manual grinding is available for those who want it!
Silver often symbolizes riches and wealth, the perfect vibes to carry into a new year. A style all their own, Frieling's double wall mirror-finish stainless steel French presses turn heads while keeping your coffee and tea hot longer than ordinary glass carafes. The all-steel mesh and plunger mechanism bring only superior quality!
The Espro P5 Press is one of the more user-friendly coffee presses available, promising grit and grinds free coffee, precise extraction, and durable materials. Meaning it’s perfect for hosts who don’t want to fiddle with anything throughout the night without sacrificing the end product.
Our 100% Arabica roast, Crema Wave is a medium roast coffee, best used for preparing espresso. It has notes of honey and almond that is perfect for the sweeter recipes below. We’ve tested this coffee in our most popular machines, including semi-automatic, super-automatic, and prosumers before we signed off on the final blend composition and roast profile.
Who doesn't love a good medium roast? Enjoy the Classico Medium Roast from illy! The Classico has lingering sweetness and delicate notes of caramel, orange blossom and jasmine with a consistently smooth finish that is never bitter.
We of course have to include a dark roast into the mix. This one from Lavazza has a tailored roast profile that enhances the coffee's strength and body without promoting bitterness. You'll find a lingering finish of chocolatey notes that make it an ideal brew to pair with milk.
Some things never go out of style. For instance, the classic appeal of these mugs simply cannot be beat, no matter how much time passes. Sometimes all you need are black and white ceramics.
When it comes to counting down to the new year, finger foods that you can snack on throughout the night are always the best option. You want something that is quick and easy, so you can dart off between commercials. This fondue recipe is absolutely perfect for such a thing.
Fondue Tip: If you don't own a fondue pot, all you really need to do is keep the double boiler and fondue hot, stirring occasionally.
Manifest a sweet new year with this delicious coffee creme brulee. The soft custard contrasted with a burnt caramel glaze has been a crowd pleaser since the late 1600s. In this case, we’re reintroducing the classic treat with a modern coffee twist.
If you have any leftover eggnog from Christmas, don’t throw it out! Spike this deliciously thick and creamy drink to give it a fun twist. This recipe is definitely for those with a sweet tooth.
Barista Tip: The quality of your art won’t make your drink any tastier, but properly textured milk/eggnog will blend better with your espresso for a truly creamy latte.
We’ve been loving this recipe this season, and New Year’s Eve is no different. If a super sweet drink isn’t your cup of tea, but you’d still like something alcoholic to enjoy with a hint of milk, then Whiskey Espresso Shooters are the perfect choice. Serving size makes two whiskey and espresso shooters.
Jello shots are not just for college nights out. With strong coffee and a hearty dose of Kahlua, this recipe moves into sophisticated territory. If your New Year’s Eve is a fun one, these shots are certainly a must-make.
With any of these recipes, you are sure to have a fun and delectable jaunt into the new year. Cheers to 2022 and even more caffeinated nights!
