Healthy snacking, not only through healthy snacks

Traditional meal times such as breakfast, lunch and dinner are increasingly seldom firmly observed in the fast-paced, modern world of work and leisure. Followed by his appetite, the classic main meal is thus replaced by a quick snack in between. Known as a takeaway snack, the trend is to eat it on the go. But here, too, healthy snacking means not only eating a healthy, small snack, but also enjoying it. Preferably eat fresh coffee and cake in a café or bakery, take a little break from everyday life and get your mind off things.
Conclusion: It therefore does not matter whether it is a sweet or salty snack. The advantage is even the alternation between sweet pastry and savory sandwich. As long as it stays with a small snack and is not eaten around the clock. The main thing is to enjoy the treat, combined with a break from everyday life, and this is probably best done in a cozy café or in the bakery around the corner.

Cold Brew Coffee is coffee infused with cold water. A lightly roasted, high-quality coffee is used for this purpose, making it fruitier and not as bitter in taste. Coarsely ground, it is placed in the refrigerator at a ratio of 1:10 for at least 7 to 12 hours. After the Cold Brew Coffee has steeped, it contains a full volume of flavor, which elicits new aromas from the coffee bean.

Coffee trend 2022 No. 3: Coffee combined with soft drinks
Coffee is also suitable for combination with soft drinks. How about a coffee soda or an espresso tonic? A coffee soda consists of soda water with vanilla syrup and a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg. To this is added an espresso and a shot of coffee creamer. The preparation of an espresso tonic is even simpler. An espresso is infused with 150 ml of tonic water, a squeeze of lemon is added and the refreshing drink with caffeine is ready.
