The Godrej Food Trends Report is a commendable attempt by the team of compiling the latest trends and happenings of the food Industry bringing together the various predictions and views of the Experts in the industry in a simple format.
Until few years ago I could easily say that the western countries are so well caffeinated but with the increasing coffee trends it is surprising to see a Starbucks or a Cafe Coffee Day at every lane and corner even in the smallest cities in India.
For centuries Indians have preferred chai over a cup of coffee …
But according to various reports now this definitely seems to be changing and we are gradually shifting more towards the coffee culture ,especially the masses.
So let’s get into some Coffee Trends Predictions for 2018.
Young crowd definitely loves hanging out and spending more time outside their homes at the coffee houses for get-togthers, dates , meeting friends, holding work meetings and sipping local roasts and grabbing a quick bite alongside.
As per the need of the hour, Coffee varieties are growing by the day and now the Cafes serve anything from instant cappuccino, to latte and espresso. They are well advertised well , and so the urban population didn’t blink twice to embrace it.
The coffee production has increasingly flourished in some Indian states like Kerala Tamil Nadu Karnataka. Coffee is the third most consumed beverage around the world after water and tea.
However people in North India prefer instant coffee compare to people in South who prefer the filter coffee.
Slowly but steadily coffee is becoming more of a necessity than a luxury and there is a steep increase in the quality of the coffee and the different specialities and variations are easily available now on our soil too.
In short, coffee is just not for Refreshment breaks any more .
The masses have now moved over to iced coffees as they prefer cooler beverages specially in summers.
I am personally a huge fan of cold coffee and I love to try different variations in them according to my mood and weather.
•I don’t know if many of you are aware of this new coffee trend which is called the Nitro coffee.It is infused with nitrogen gas which gives t a frothy texture and a creamy taste.
You will mostly find them in cans and they are ready to have on the go.
•You also have the cold brew coffee which is different than the regular cold coffee it is prepared by steeping coarsely grounded coffee in cold water .
It is most acidic due to its steeping process it can also be diluted for a more subtle flavour depending on ones tastebuds.
•There is always a good side and the bad side to everything so as there may be some disadvantages of coffee which definitely persuades the coffee haters to avoid it …on the contrary I would like to list some good reasons to consume coffee…
*Coffee can protect against the cirrhosis of liver if you could just cut down on the alcohol intake.
*It also reduces the risk of type two diabetes consumed 4 to 6 cups a day.
*It also reduces depression and suicide risk.
*Coffee drinkers also have a less risk of heart diseases.
*Coffee also reduces cancer risk and coffee drinkers have a stronger DNA as the white blood cells of coffee consumers have less instance of spontaneous DNA strand breakage.
