Choosing A Better Food Supplier

After struggling for months with poor food vendors, we realized that we needed to start shopping around for a new food supplier. I knew that our restaurant was only as good as the food that we served, so we started meeting with different vendors and trying to tell what set them apart. After meeting with several different businesses, we were really impressed with one supplier that really knew their stuff. This blog is all about what to look for in a food supplier and how to avoid problems with poor quality foodservice and ingredients. You never know, some of this advice could make your restaurant truly special.

Add Variety To Your Routine With A New Coffee Recipe

While in the U.S. it's common to have coffee black or with cream and sugar, in different areas of the world there are a wide variety of different coffee recipes that you can try to spice up your routine a bit. These range from the typical coffee recipe in France of cafe au lait made with half milk and half espresso to those that are a bit more exotic, like the Wiener melange coffee in Austria that contains a mix of espresso, egg yolk, brown sugar and whipped cream.

Sweet Coffees

Those who like a sweeter coffee may like to try the cafe bombon of Spain, which consists of half espresso and half sweetened condensed milk. Another option from Spain is cafe con miel, or coffee with honey. Besides honey, it contains cinnamon, steamed milk and a shot of espresso. Sudanese coffee is typically a very sweet mix that is spiced with cardamom and ginger. Of course, it's always possible to simply continue loading regular coffee down with a whole bunch of sugar.

Dairy-Free Coffee Drinks

The lactose intolerant may want to give the Portuguese coffee drink mazagran a try. It's made with a mix of espresso, water, ice and lemon juice. Mexico has another milk-free mix made with cinnamon, water, coffee and piloncillo, which is a type of unrefined sugar. 

Spiked Coffees

Of course, you can't forget the many alcoholic coffee recipes. These include the somewhat well-known Irish coffee made with coffee, whiskey, brown sugar and slightly whipped cream and the German pharisaer, which contains black coffee, rum, sugar and whipped cream.

Dessert Coffees

Dessert can also be a good opportunity to indulge in a coffee beverage. In Germany, they sometimes drink eiskaffee, which consists of instant coffee, ice cream, chocolate chips and whipped cream. Recipes for sweet coffee drinks abound in the United States as well, where you can see them at pretty much any coffee shop. They include coffee-based shakes and iced coffees covered in whipped cream and caramel or chocolate sauce and filled with everything from cinnamon roll pieces to cake pieces.

Bulletproof Coffee

Those in the mood for something even more crazy sounding may want to give bulletproof coffee a try. This is basically coffee mixed with butter and coconut oil. The amounts vary based on different recipes, but typically include about 2 cups of coffee mixed with about 2 tablespoons of butter and one to two tablespoons of coconut or other medium-chain triglyceride oil. People sometimes drink this beverage instead of breakfast because of its high calorie content.
