Summing it up

There are tons of great coffee recipes out there. But, the coffee drink itself should be served according to personal taste. That’s why most of these recipes don’t have specific measurements. If you want a stronger drink, add more of the brewed coffee, and if you like things sweet, you can add sugar or sweetener such as syrup to the recipe. You can even add some ice cream to make it extra perfect and delicious. For vegan drinks, swap out the milk for almond or soya milk, and use of dairy-free sweetener. All of the recipes can easily be adjusted for personal taste and are easy to make at home.

When it comes to iced coffee, some people don’t like how the melting ice dilutes the drink. Try pouring coffee into an ice tray and freezing it. The cubes melt, but coffee is added to the drink instead of water.

Coffee is processed on farms around the world. In some regions, cheap labor is used for processing the coffee cherries. It’s true the coffee farmer is providing much-needed employment, but they might not be paying their workers a fair wage. You don’t want to encourage this practice.

All of the coffee at Chamberlain Coffee is Fair Trade making it the best place to buy beans or ground coffee with the assurance you are not supporting unfair work practices.
