What is “coffee-and-fruit”?
It is an iced fruit drink topped with cold coffee and gives out a pretty layer of the coffee and the juice. But lately, this coffee-and-fruit combination has taken flight globally, sometimes with the fruit adding bright, acidic treble notes to coffee drinks, and sometimes with the coffee adding a bit of bass to fruit drinks.
The Perfect Pair
Most berries like blueberries, strawberries and raspberries, etc. pair well with coffees from Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda, Jamaica, or Yemen while peaches, plums, raisins, apricots, cherries, nectarines, and citrus fruits pair well with coffee from Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Honduras, Bolivia, Costa Rica, or Nicaragua.
Having said that, according to menu research firm Datassential, which said that mentions on menus of coffee items with fruit have increased by 64% over the year, with the fastest-growing flavours being orange, lemon and coconut. Orange goes extremely well with coffee because it is dry and bitter and it leaves the mouth wanting something bright and refreshing.
