What Exactly Is White Coffee And How Is It Made?
White coffee is the most recent trend to take the United States by storm, and even if you're a coffee connoisseur, this beverage is like nothing you’ve ever tasted before.
Originating from Yemen, white coffee is made with green coffee beans that are roasted at lower temperatures, resulting in a yellowish bean with a low acidity and nutty flavor.
These low roasting temperatures also result in a 5% higher caffeine content in white coffee, plus the presence of chlorogenic acid, which can potentially combat diabetes and cancer.
White coffee has a sweet, nutty flavor without any bitterness, making it perfect for espresso beverages, mixing with milk, or enjoying simply on its own.
In Yemen, the coffee is traditionally enjoyed with a dash of Hawaij, a spice mixture made from black pepper, cumin, cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, cardamom, and other spices.
If you’d like to try it, white coffee is available online. It’s typically sold already ground, since the hardness of the barely-roasted beans can break a normal coffee grinder.
