Coffee Extracts and Flavoring Ingredients for Baking & Beverages
What is Coffee Flavor?
Coffee flavor is immensely popular in beverages, baked goods, and ice cream. It provides the unmistakable flavor of coffee in your recipes. This versatile ingredient comes in many styles and flavors, including plain coffee, deep and rich espresso, creamy cappucino, and more. As a flavor element, the hint of bitterness pairs well with almost any other taste profile. Chocolates, frostings, fillings, milkshakes, and ice cream are well-known products that are frequently coffee-flavored. But this ingredient is also great in other baked goods, beverages, and cooked dishes.
Coffee Extracts vs Coffee Flavor
Coffee extract is just one of many extracts and flavors you can use to enhance your recipes. The gentle extraction process used in our coffee extract ensures that you'll get a perfect coffee flavor every time you need it. Extracts are concentrated flavoring agents that have been distilled from beans, nut oils, fruits, and spices that are then dissolved in an alcohol base. Our pure extracts and flavors can be used to in candy, beverages, specialty dishes, baked goods, and desserts.
Coffee flavorings made without actual coffee will still add the taste, aroma, and sometimes color of this popular ingredient in cooking, baking, and beverage making.
Cooking with Coffee Flavor
Tastes great in brownies, cakes, shakes, and ice cream. Pairs well with vanilla, chocolate, and a variety of other flavors. Add a few drops to a chocolate shake for a great mocha flavor.
What is the Difference between Espresso and Coffee?
Espresso, or caffe espresso, is concentrated coffee that is made from finely-ground beans brewed under pressure to create a thick and strong-tasting coffee that is usually served in small servings due to its strength. The difference in taste comes not from the beans, which are usually dark roast, but rather from the preparation and brewing method used.
What is the Difference between Cappuccino and Coffee?
Cappuccino's origins can be traced to Italy. It is a hot drink made with espresso and milk. The espresso is poured into the bottom third of the cup and then carefully topped off with hot milk. Additional milk is steamed and aerated to form a foam which is then poured on top of the espresso/milk mixture. Baristas will often create designs in the foam for a special touch. Cappuccino takes its name from a branch of the order of Catholic Franciscan friars named Capuchins, who wore woven wool cloaks in a particular shade of light brown. Cappuccino's rising popularity occurred in Europe after World War II. It was then that large espresso machines became common in restaurants and cafes. In Italy, the Italians consume cappuccino only in the morning. In fact, it is frowned upon to ask for a cappuccino after mid-morning! In the United States, cappuccino has become very popular, especially since specialty coffee bars started opening in major cities. It is now common to find cappuccino-flavored beverages, ice cream, cakes and confectionery products. Adding cappuccino flavor is easy with OliveNation's cappuccino extract for baked goods or our cappuccino flavor fountain for no-bake and low-heat recipes.
