Think outside the cup with this coffee extract. No seriously. Use this bottle of liquid zing in place of, or in addition to, vanilla extract. (
You don't need us to tell you about coffee. Mana from heaven as far as we're concerned, the drink derived from unassuming green seeds – yup, that's seeds, not beans – is man's true best friend. Wouldn't you like to include your best friend in more than just a drink? Of course you would. That is where coffee extract comes in. Give the tyranny of vanilla extract a run for its money and use this in cookies, cakes, and smoothies – pretty much anywhere you'd want that pure, unmistakable flavor kick of a cup of joe.
Oddly enough, coffee didn't catch on in the United States until around the time of the Civil War, nearly two hundred years after the rest of the world had been secretly reveling in it. While Ethiopia was the first place the bushy coffea plant was grown (of which there are two strains – robusta and arabica), these days coffee is grown in over seventy countries. It is one of the most heavily traded agricultural commodities in the world.
Use & Care
Keep cool and away from direct light. This is highly concentrated stuff, so cut a wide swath of coffee-tinged cakes, creams, custards, and cookies over the course of about one year.
