Coffee. The word itself is so nostalgic. If there is something else I consume more than water and maybe my soy milk, it is coffee. Some like it strong, some like it with less caffeine, some like it without milk, some like it filtered and some with extra sugar. Each to their own, I guess. So, we at OT have complied some of the unique ways to have your coffee.

Coffee in a cone


Yes. You read that right. The cone-cept of coffee in a cone was developed by Dayne Levinrad and his mother in Johannesburg, South Africa. A simple innovation in July 2016, the coffee in a cone has become one of the most instagrammable treats. Coffee in a cone is a trend that is slowly catching up with the rest of the world. The Atrangi Café in Shakarpur is one of the few cafés that offer coffee in a cone. We suggest you rejoice in the cone-ly beginnings and embrace the cone.

Bulletproof coffee

No. This coffee will not act as a shield if someone fires at you but it for sure is one of the best options to replace your breakfast. Two cups (470 ml) of coffee, two tablespoons (28 grams) of grass-fed, unsalted butter, and one-two tablespoons (15–30 ml) of MCT oil mix them in the blender and kaboosh, your bulletproof coffee is ready. The coffee is popular amongst people who follow the ketogenic diet.

Affogato coffee

You have to hand it to the Italians, their food and experimentation with drinks is second to none. Affogato is an Italian coffee-based dessert. While the Italians have enjoyed the sweet for a while, the world is waking up to it slowly. All you need is some vanilla ice cream, freshly brewed espresso to make the affogato coffee. A tip: top the coffee with some liquor and devour.

Espresso and Tonic

This drink does not need gin. Though coffee and tonic are an odd couple, espresso and tonic are two undeniable classics. The recipe to make this drink is pretty simple, actually. Prepare fresh double espresso and wait for it to cool down. Take a large glass or cup and fill it with ice cubes. Take a large slice of lime and squeeze it on top of the ice. Follow it up with tonic water and gently pour in the cold double shot espresso.
