The Ultimate Guide to All Your Favorite Drinks
Avoiding the hassle, and actually saving a few bucks while enjoying high-end coffee from home is the name of the game, and here is your guide for how to do that. Nothing is off the table when it comes to what you can concoct with Jot’s coffee concentrate. Because of its rich flavor and quality concentration, Jot can make everything from original espresso-based drinks to drip and iced coffees. It’s all about the recipes.
The great news - none of the recipes are complex. Some tools to help you get the most out of each bottle of Jot coffee concentrate are – a kettle to warm your water and a steamer for different milk options. Even if all you have is tap water, you can still make some of your favorite brews from the convenience of your own home. Let's start with some basics.
Not just a drink for the warm summer seasons, but a beloved year-round beverage, for the iced coffee drinker nothing really quite compares. If you want the midday pick-me-up iced coffee delivers so well, measure out 8 ounces of water, add ice and a tablespoon of concentrate, stir and enjoy!
For millions of people the world over, the best part of waking up is a cup of simple, hot coffee. Whether you take it black, or with cream and heaps of sugar, there’s no getting around the fact that drip coffee, pour overs, French press, or even Aeropress have a special place in our hearts. To mimic this experience using Jot, add 6-8 ounces of hot water to one tablespoon of concentrate, and start your day off right. It’s that simple.
What About Dessert?
Coffee is a great choice to mix in with your post-meal desserts, and there’s no better way to do this than with an affogato. It’s simple, all you have to do is take a scoop of your favorite ice cream, vanilla, or chocolate works great, and then pour a tablespoon of coffee concentrate right on top. It helps to use a small cup or bowl so the concentrate and ice cream can blend well, especially as the ice cream softens. This is one after-dinner treat you’ll look forward to all day long.
One of the most popular drinks in the United States, the Americano, is a staple of American coffee culture. Made originally by diluting espresso over hot water to give the drip coffee experience with the rich espresso taste, this popular drink can also be made with concentrate.
All you have to do is measure out 6 ounces of hot water instead of 8 for drip, and add in the concentrate. The drink is noticeably soft and palatable like a smooth Americano should be, without losing any of its rich, bold flavor.
A cortado has been a fan favorite for years. More palatable than a doppio (a straight double shot of espresso), a cortado delivers the richness of the espresso flavor, tempered with a small amount of steamed milk. If you wanna taste the rich notes of the concentrate and make your own cortado at home, put one tablespoon of concentrate into 1 ounce of hot water, then add 3 ounces of steamed milk.
Latte Love Language
Last but not least we have the iced and hot latte. You can’t really sell a coffee experience and claim that it’s for all coffee drinkers without giving a nod to lattes. As one of the most popular drinks, the latte covers a wide variety of styles and profiles. A plain latte, whether hot or iced, is going to be simply espresso with milk. With coffee concentrate, you can create incredible lattes without ever having to wait in line at a coffee shop.
For a hot latte, choose your favorite milk and steam appropriately. Place one tablespoon of coffee concentrate in your cup, then pour over 8 ounces of steamed milk of choice. Add flavors as you would like.
For iced lattes, you won't be steaming the milk, but if you want to add a pump of flavor, we suggest mixing it in with the milk before adding the concentrate and then top with ice.
With These easy-to-use recipes under your belt, 2022 can be the year that you enjoy coffee like you never thought possible thanks to Jot’s signature coffee concentrate!
