Ice Choco Latte

Ice Choco Latte

A delicious drink on these hot days! The recipe is worth trying!

  • 1 cup of brewed coffee, harder
  • 200 ml of milk
  • 2 teaspoons grated sugar
  • 50 gr dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla ice cream
  • 5-6 ice cubes
  • whipped cream
  • black and white chocolate needles for decoration

Servings: 3

Preparation time: less than 15 minutes


We break the chocolate pieces, put it in a bowl and melt it on a steam bath. Mix the melted chocolate with the hot coffee, let them cool. Put in the blender cold milk, ice cream, sugar, chocolate mixture with coffee and ice cubes. We turn on the blender and pulsate until everything becomes frothy and the ice crumbles. Pour the drink into glasses, put whipped cream and chocolate needles on top. Out of this amount comes out for 3 people. Good appetite!

Standard coffee brewing tends to make coffee taste more bitter, because of the intense and rapid extraction of flavor from the beans by the hot water. Cold brew, on the other hand, takes around 18-24 hours. This slow infusion process pulls all the great coffee flavor from the beans and makes coffee taste less acidity, which is why cold brew coffee is naturally sweeter. Perfect for making iced coffee.

Grind the coffee coarsely, which you can do yourself at home if you have a coffee grinder or in store where you buy the beans. Combine ground coffee with water in a mason jar or French press, and let it steep overnight, or for at least 12 hours. During this time, the coffee slowly infuses into the water, creating a strong, concentrated brew. Strain the coffee the next morning using strainer, cheesecloth or coffee filter, and you’re ready to go.

For this Cold Brewed Iced mocha Latte recipe you’ll need:

  • COLD BREWED COFFEE: Use any type of coffee you prefer and like here.
  • ALMOND MILK: I used unsweetened almond milk that is creamy and perfect for making iced coffee drinks.
  • COCOA POWDER: I used raw cocoa powder here that is unprocessed, bitter, deep flavored and unbelievably healthy. Cocoa is one of the richest sources of polyphenols - an antioxidant that has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced inflammation, better blood flow, lower blood pressure and improved cholesterol and blood sugar levels. (1)
  • MACA POWDER: This Peruvian root with distinctive earthy almost caramel like taste is just amazing. Some dislike the maca taste but I just say you need to give this powerful superfood a chance. Maca has many health benefits. It boosts mood, sex drive, energy and stamina. It's a great source of essential vitamins and minerals too and it's loaded with powerful antioxidants that prevent health conditions like heart disease and cancer. (2, 3) Maca pairs so well with cacao. Adding maca to this Iced Mocha Latte uplifted the overall taste and added so many benefits.

Although cold brewed coffee is naturally sweeter than regular black coffee if you feel like your coffee after brewing isn't sweet enough you can add some extra sugar. I suggest you use pure maple syrup or honey. Any other sweetener will just ruin the amazing coffee taste.

Banana-Choco ice cream

Chop the chocolate. Peel a squash, grate it and squeeze the juice.

Preparation of

The milk cold pour into a mixing bowl. Add the ice cream powder and mix briefly with a beater mixer on low speed. Then he fights 3 minutes at the highest speed. Next, briefly incorporate the banana puree and 2/3 of chopped chocolate. Transfer the ice cream to a freezer container, cover and store in the freezer, at least 4 hours at -18C.


Leave the ice cream before serving at least Ten minutes at room temperature, then portion. Cut the banana into slices. Portions of ice cream are decorated with banana slices and the rest of the chopped chocolate, then served.

    The Legend of the Choco Taco

    Empellon chef Alex Stupak owns four New York City restaurants devoted to tacos. He’s the author of a taco cookbook. But growing up in Leominster, Massachusetts, there was no Mexican food in Stupak’s life (“Old El Paso taco night” aside). Could it be, then, that the first taco Stupak ever had outside the home - and certainly the first taco he ever bought from a truck - was made of "light" ice cream, fake chocolate, chopped peanuts, and a sugar cone "shell "? Which is to say… a Choco Taco?

    “That’s actually true,” Stupak says. "Since I was a kid I've always been a fan of them." So when Dominique Ansel approached Stupak in the spring about a limited-edition dessert collaboration, the idea seemed almost inevitable. Who wouldn’t want the pastry chef best known for mashing croissants and donuts into one delicious portmanteau to riff on Choco Tacos, especially since Stupak is a former pastry chef himself? There was only one small problem. “Dominique, he’s obviously a French dude,” Stupak says. "He had no idea what the fuck they were. I had to buy a box and feed him some."

    For just about everyone other than the French inventor of the Cronut, the Choco Taco is the stuff of nostalgic summer sweet tooth obsession - the most beloved and innovative of all the American ice cream "novelties." Its acolytes are legion. Restaurant pastry chefs and boutique scoop shop owners regularly pay homage. Employees at the United States Bureau of Land Management demanded Choco Tacos as part of their Burning Man provisions. Congressional staffers have been known to revise the Choco Taco Wikipedia, including the anachronistic fiction that former Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn (who died in 1961) once described them as "like Texas, but in ice cream form."

    "Here is proof that Americans loved tacos so much - they were willing to eat it in frozen dessert form."

    "Here is proof that Americans loved tacos so much," he says Taco USA author and "Ask a Mexican" columnist Gustavo Arellano. "They were willing to eat it in frozen dessert form."

    But where exactly did the Choco Taco come from? In 2012, Paul Constant of Seattle alt-weekly The Stranger traced the Choco Taco’s origin back to country singer Marty Robbins ’” cover of the 1924 obscure folk song ‘Choco in My Taco.’ ”This was a lie (or rather, satire). Another tall tale comes from Alan Drazen, who claims he saw the Choco Taco in a vision.

    "I was on an expedition in Mexico and got separated from my party," Drazen says. "It was hot. I hadn't had anything to drink. And then I saw a mirage. An ice cream taco, rising out of the distance. That's how I got the idea." This is the story the inventor of the Choco Taco tells when people beg him to embellish. Because yes, way back in 1983, Alan Drazen really did invent the Choco Taco. Not in Mexico. Not even in Texas or California. But it was along the border, where a mighty river separates two interdependent yet often hostile lands: Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

    What began as an ice-cream-truck-only treat from the family-owned Philadelphia company Jack & Jill is now owned by Unilever and enjoyed by tens of millions of Americans each year. Drazen’s email signature heralds this accomplishment: “Inventor of the Choco Taco - The Original Ice Cream Taco - Over One Billion Sold,” it reads.

    "Man, what a genius," says Tyler Malek, the fabulous ice cream who co-owns Portland's Salt and Straw, which offers Malek's own take on the Choco Taco - the "Chocolate Tacolate" - at its soft-serve spin-off Wiz Bang Bar. "I can't even imagine [inventing it]."

    Sweet corn ice cream taco
    The super-limited collaboration between Empellon's Alex Stupak and Cronut inventor Dominique Ansel - a masa waffle "shell" with sweet corn caramel swirl ice cream, lime, and verde dipping sauce - lives on. It has since appeared on the Kitchen Table tasting menu at Empellon Cocina, and Stupak just might serve it at his brand-new Midtown flagship. “I don’t think I’m going to sell them, I think I’m going to give them to people I love,” says Stupak. "And I love everybody, so."

    Peanut Butter Choco Taco ice cream
    Somerville is where Steve’s Ice Cream invented mix-ins in 1973. Gracie’s honors that tradition by treating the Choco Taco just like any other brand-name candy bar, chopping it up into peanut butter ice cream as an occasional special.

    Bluebird Ice Cream, Seattle
    The "microcreamery" recently came out with a flavor named after the band Taco Cat, which featured pieces of waffle cone, fudge, and peanuts in vanilla ice cream.

    Hub Ice Cream Factory, Tucson, AZ
    Choco Taco
    The Tucson parlor recreates the Choco Taco with higher-end ingredients (homemade waffle cones, vanilla bean ice cream, Callebaut chocolate, freshly roasted salted peanuts).

    Drazen started out driving a Good Humor truck in Philadelphia before going into management with Jack & Jill in 1974. His main job then was supervising mobile vendors, a.k.a. ice cream trucks (a Good Humor business got out of two years later). But one day at the office, he was struck by inspiration, albeit with a heavy dose of pragmatism.

    It was the beginning of ice cream's slow season - fall - and the then 32 year-old found himself thinking about the fact that Jack & Jill did not have anything unique as part of its own product line (many popular ice cream truck stalwarts - ice cream sandwiches, strawberry shortcake and chocolate eclairs, sundae cones - are generic, while such favorites as Popsicles, Klondike Bars, and Drumsticks are brands).

    At the time, chimichanga and fried ice cream slinger Chi-Chi’s was the country’s hot casual restaurant franchise, while the moment when salsa became more popular than ketchup was just a few years away. "Mexican food was the fastest-growing segment of the food industry, and the taco was the most recognizable shape, "says Drazen.

    That shape made for a whole different ice cream-eating experience. "When you eat a sugar cone, you generally eat the nuts, chocolate, and ice cream on the top, and then when you get to the cone, you're [only] eating ice cream and cone," Drazen says. "With the Choco Taco you're getting the ice cream, cone, nuts, and chocolate with just about every bite."

    Drazen’s boss let him run with the idea. An advertising agency was hired to test names, but Drazen says he came up with phrase "Choco Taco" pretty much on the fly.

    What made the roll-out work was Jack & amp Jill’s connection to Gold Bond - not the powder, but the Green Bay, Wisconsin company that, at the time, was both the parent company of Popsicle and a contract manufacturer for numerous others in the ice cream biz, including Jack & Jill and Good Humor. Gold Bond was able to modify a machine at its dedicated cone plant to make the waffles in a folded shape. It could also fill the "tacos" at its ice cream facility, which meant cheaper freight and much less breakage. "An empty taco shell is very fragile," says Drazen. "If we'd had to ship those across the country, most of them probably wouldn't have made it."

    The Choco’s structural integrity also comes from the layer of chocolate sprayed inside the shell, which holds it together just like guacamole in a corn or flour tortilla (this edible insulation would also become standard at the bottom of a sundae cone). The Choco was also one of the first products to use a "metalized polypropylene" wrapper instead of paper. Both features help maintain the taco’s crispness, albeit, as anyone who’s ever had a Choco Taco knows, with mixed results. "It's a challenge," Drazen concedes. "It continues to be a challenge."

    This was something Stupak and Ansel discussed during their Choco Taco R & ampD. “We ate them and dissected them and talked about what we loved and what we didn’t,” says Stupak. "The big‘ con ’of Choco Tacos for me is that the outside is not crisp." Salt & Straw’s Tyler Malek, however, is more forgiving. "Don't tell anyone," he says, speaking metaphorically. "I love the soggy shells. That's part of the experience, right?"

    Drazen, Jack & Jill, and Gold Bond originally distributed the Choco Taco almost entirely through wholesalers selling to ice cream trucks. Then, in 1989, Good Humor and its parent company, Unilever, bought Gold Bond, and with it, the license to manufacture and distribute Choco Tacos (Jack & Jill still owns the patent, since Drazen developed the Choco Taco as its employee). “It went from me selling it to my friends around the country to going into, at the time, maybe 20-30,000 Unilever freezers,” says Drazen. (Said freezers, the ones you reach into convenience stores, are a bit like Coke or Pepsi vending machines, offering an exclusive line, though many stores have more than one.)

    A few years after its initial introduction, Choco Tacos made their way into Taco Bell, a partnership that still leads some people to think the product was invented by the fast-food chain. Not so, but the arrangement did have an impact on the recipe. The Choco’s signature “light ice cream” was originally introduced at Taco Bell’s behest, when the company was trying to reduce the fat and calorie content of their menu. Given how much else is going on in a Choco Taco - chocolate, peanuts, more chocolate - the adjustment didn’t really hurt its flavor or mouthfeel, so the new recipe stuck, even though the Choco Taco’s availability at Taco Bell eventually ended (much to the chagrin of a very few hardy souls on Facebook and Twitter).

    Bell or no Bell, the Choco Taco can now be found in approximately 120,000 Good Humor / Unilever convenience store freezers, as well as warehouse stores and supermarkets. The product’s expansion happened in tandem with Unilever’s many acquisitions: In 1993, the company bought Klondike, which became the Choco Taco’s parent brand, as well as Breyers (Unilever also purchased Ben & Jerry’s in 2001, and Talenti in 2014).

    Over the years there have been multiple Choco Taco flavors, including Heath Bar, a generic toffee flavor, peanut butter, cookies-and-cream, strawberry, and yes, "fried ice cream," though neither breading nor hot oil was involved. “That was a caramel, dulce de leche kind of flavor,” Drazen says.

    The Choco Taco was both an ahead-of-its-time innovation ("food science" before the term was used by diners) and an exactly-of-its-time decadence (Steve's had invented mix-ins in 1973, and Ben & amp Jerry's first franchise opened in 1981). If it didn’t exist, someone like Malek would have had to invent it. Malek has childhood memories of enjoying Choco Tacos (along with Super Mario bars), but as someone whose own ice cream involves so much culinary exploration, the fact that the Choco Taco was essentially a mass-produced modernist cuisine dessert is what's irresistible to him as an adult.

    Wiz Bang Bar’s “Chocolate Tacolate” is a fairly faithful tribute, with a twist. “The idea was to not screw up something great, but just slightly elevate it with really great ingredients,” says Malek. The "Chocolate Tacolate" is made with Portland's Woodblock chocolate, Jacobsen mineral salt (instead of peanuts), and cinnamon-ancho ice cream, "which is kind of a taco play," Malek says. There’s also a chocolate stracciatella-style ripple in the ice cream, which mimics the internal chocolate layer of the Choco Taco. Wiz Bang Bar makes them 20 at a time, by hand, using a wooden shell stand Malek made himself.

    Both Malek and Alex Stupak are quick to note that they could never re-create or technically improve on the Choco Taco, because the joy of eating them is as much about place and time as flavor. You can’t sink your teeth into a memory. “You can make it taste better, but then it’s not the childhood treat anymore, so it kind of ruins it,” says Stupak.

    "When you really think about Choco Tacos, they actually don't taste like chocolate all that much," he continues. "They dip it in some weird glacage that's super low-grade cocoa powder mixed with a lot of cocoa butter, or god knows what else. We were trying to dip ours, obviously, in good chocolate. But it's one of those things where you kind of don't want it to be as good. "

    "You can make it taste better, but then it's not the childhood treat anymore, so it kind of ruins it."

    Stupak and Ansel went in another direction entirely: a "sweet corn ice cream taco" with no chocolate at all. The waffle "shell" is made out of corn mass. “That worked out great, because it ended up being super crispy,” says Stupak. "Then I really lobbied to go corn-on-corn and fill it with sweet corn ice cream." The confection is topped off by a mix of lime zest, sugar, and salt.

    Gracie’s Ice Cream in Somerville, MA also pays tribute to the treat without directly recreating it, in this case by using it as an ingredient. The store’s Peanut Butter Choco Taco flavor is made by chopping up actual Choco Tacos, which are then mixed into peanut butter ice cream, just like M & ampMs or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups would be. Gracie’s co-owner Aaron Cohen has also made an ice cream cake with a whole Choco Taco inside it, as a surprise.

    "People are delighted by Choco Tacos," says Cohen, who eats them with his wife every year on their wedding anniversary. "We started a couple of years ago when we had an underwhelming anniversary dinner and didn't want to stay for dessert, but picked up some Choco Tacos on the way home." Cohen is a fan of the light ice cream in particular, and the way it contrasts with the snappy chocolate shell. "They wouldn't be allowed to call it ice cream if it was less than 10 percent butterfat, but it's so dainty," he says.

    To Cohen (as well as Malek), Drazen is something of a hero. And Drazen is understandably proud of making his mark on novelty ice cream history. Around Philadelphia, he’ll tell anyone who asks - actually, they don’t even have to ask - about his claim to fame.

    "Most people's first response is that they don't believe me," he says. "They'll walk away, come back, go, 'Oh yeah, I just Googled you!' People are a little taken aback by the fact that they're talking to the actual person who had that idea back in the mid- ' 80s. My wife gets embarrassed whenever I tell people the story, "he adds. "Maybe she feels like she's heard it too many times, But for me, it's never too many."

    Jason Cohen's favorite taco variety is breakfast. He also writes for Texas Monthly, Portland Monthly, and Cincinnati magazine.

    Almond Milk Cold Brew Coffee Latte

    Homemade cold brew is easy to make yourself. Freeze it into convenient ice cubes that you can drop into your iced coffee or almond milk latte!

    To say that we & # 8217re obsessed with cold brew coffee is an understatement. It & # 8217s the only coffee we drink at home now & # 8211 the only reason we still own a coffee maker (which is now stored up on the highest shelf) is for when parents come to visit. I didn & # 8217t know it was possible to make cold brew yourself, but it's more than possible, it's easy.

    I & # 8217ve been buying my cold brew by the bottle, but when I started seeing homemade versions all over the internet (here, here, here, here), I was intrigued. But let & # 8217s back up & # 8211 what is cold brew coffee you ask? (if you & # 8217re not asking you can scroll down and skip this paragraph). It & # 8217s regular coffee beans (get a good quality kind) that you soak overnight and then strain instead of brewing it in a coffee maker. The benefits are that it's less acidic than regular coffee, so it's a little healthier and easier on the tummy. Plus, you can store it in the fridge and it & # 8217ll last almost a week.

    I usually drink mine Americano style, and Jack drinks his with chocolate almond milk. Today we & # 8217re meeting in the (lightly sweet) middle with iced almond milk lattes made with homemade cold brew iced cubes & # 8230 because no one wants a watery coffee drink once the ice melts.

    Store these ice cubes all summer long & # 8211 pop a few out as you like and just add Almond Breeze! Adjust the strength of your coffee drink by the number of ice cubes you use. Your iced latte will be ready quicker than your local barista can spell your name wrong on a paper cup.

    Coffee and milk have been part of European cuisine since the 17th century. Coffee and milk, Milchkaffee, milk coffee and latte are domestic terms of traditional ways of drinking coffee, usually as part of breakfast in the home. Public cafés in Europe and the US seem to have no mention of the terms until the 20th century, although Kapuziner is mentioned in Austrian coffee houses in Vienna and Trieste in the 2nd half of 1700s as "coffee with cream, spices and sugar" (being the origin of the Italian cappuccino).

    According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the term coffee and milk was first used in English in 1867 by William Dean Howells in his essay "Italian Journeys". [4] Kenneth Davids maintains that "breakfast drinks of this kind have existed in Europe for generations, but the (commercial) coffee version of this drink is an American invention". [5] [ dubious - discuss ] The French term milk coffee was used in cafés in several countries in western continental Europe from 1900 onward, while the French themselves started using the term cream coffee for coffee with milk or cream.

    The Austrian-Hungarian empire (Central Europe) had its own terminology for the coffees being served in coffee houses, while in German homes it was still called Milchkaffee. The Italians used the term latte domestically, but it is not known from cafes like Florian in Venice or any other coffee houses or places where coffee was served publicly. Even when the Italian espresso bar culture bloomed in the years after WW2 both in Italy, and in cities like Vienna and London, espresso and cappuccino are the terms, latte is missing on coffee menus.

    In Italian latte (pronounced [ˈLatte]) means "milk" —so ordering a "latte" in Italy will get the customer a glass of milk. [6] [7]

    In Spanish the phrase latte (coffee with milk) is used, which is by default served in a medium or large cup whereas the similar Cortado (coffee with less milk) is served in a small cup.

    In English-speaking countries latte is shorthand for caffelatte or caffellatte (from coffee and milk, "coffee and milk"), which is similar to the French milk coffee, the Spanish latte, the Catalan latte or the Portuguese gallon.

    The Caffe Mediterraneum in Berkeley, California claims Lino Meiorin, one of its early owners, "invented" and "made the latte a standard drink" in the 1950s. The latte was popularized in Seattle, Washington in the early 1980s [8] and spread more widely in the early 1990s. [9] [10]

    In northern Europe and Scandinavia, a similar "trend" started in the early 1980s as milk coffee became popular again, prepared with espresso and steamed milk. Milk coffee started replacing this term around 1996–97, but both names exist side by side, more often more similar than different in preparation.

    In Italy, coffee latte is almost always prepared at home, for breakfast only. The coffee is brewed with a stovetop mocha pot and poured into a cup containing heated milk. (Unlike the "international" latte drink, the milk in the Italian original is generally not foamed, and sugar is added by the drinker, if at all).

    Outside Italy, a coffee latte is typically prepared in a 240 mL (8 US fl oz) glass or cup with one standard shot of espresso (either single, 30 mL or 1 US fl oz, or double, 60 mL or 2 US fl oz ) and filled with steamed milk, with a layer of foamed milk approximately 12 mm (1 ⁄ 2 in) thick on the top. In the US, a latte is often heavily sweetened, with 3% or even more sugar. [11] When ordering this drink in Italy, one should ask for a latte macchiato.

    The drink is related to a cappuccino, the difference being that a cappuccino consists of espresso and steamed milk with a 20-millimetre-thick (0.79 in) layer of milk foam. A variant found in Australia and New Zealand similar to the latte is the flat white, which is served in a smaller ceramic cup with warmed milk (without the layer of foam). In the United States this beverage is sometimes referred to as a wet cappuccino.

    In the United States, an iced latte is usually espresso and chilled milk poured over ice. [12] Unlike a hot latte, it does not usually contain steamed milk or foam. [13] Iced lattes often have sugar or flavoring syrups added, though purists prefer them to consist simply of coffee and milk they are always served blended with ice. [14] The espresso can be pre-chilled (sometimes as a mixture of espresso and milk) or frozen in advance to avoid warming up the drink. [15]

    A latte differs from a stained milk. In a latte macchiato, espresso is added to milk, rather than the reverse, and caffè lattes have a stronger coffee flavour.

    The latte macchiato is milk steamed to microfoam, served in a glass with a half shot of espresso poured gently through the foamy top layer, creating a layered drink with a "macchia" (literally: "a stain")—a spot—of espresso on the top. As with a caffè macchiato, which is espresso with a spot of milk atop, indicating there is a hint of milk underneath the espresso foam, a latte macchiato is the opposite, to indicate there is espresso in the milk.

    The use of the term "macchiato" has been widened to include a huge array of beverages and ice creams. In some countries (such as Germany), latte macchiato is the preferred term. The word "macchiato" itself is Italian for "stained" which refers to creating a coffee or milk "stain" in the drink.

    Although the term macchiato has been used to describe various types of espresso drinks, a caffè macchiato is 3/4 espresso and 1/4 steamed milk. A caffè macchiato is about 2–3 imp fl oz 2–3 US fl oz (60–90 mL) and is usually served in a demitasse. Although a traditional macchiato is small, there are still ways to pour art into the crema of drink. The only difference between pouring latte art and macchiato art is that for a macchiato, the milk has to be poured faster and through a much smaller stream.

    • In some establishments, lattes are served in a glass on a saucer with a napkin to hold the (sometimes hot) glass.
    • A latte is sometimes served in a bowl in Europe, particularly Scandinavia, this is referred to as a café au lait.
    • Increasingly common in the United States and Europe, latte art has led to the stylization of coffee making, and the creation of which is now a popular art form. Created by pouring steaming, and mostly frothed, milk into the coffee, that liquid is introduced into the beverage in such a way that patterns are distinguishable on the top of coffee. Popular patterns can include hearts, flowers, trees and other forms of simplistic representations of images and objects.
    • Iced latte is often served unstirred so that coffee appears to "float" on top of white milk in a glass cup.
    • A variation of the iced latte, known as the "bootleg latte", "ghetto latte", or "poor man's latte", [16] is an iced espresso ordered in a larger than normal cup filled up with free milk from the condiment station. [17] The drink has spawned debate at coffee shops where an iced espresso is considerably cheaper than an iced latte. [18][19][20]
    • In South Asia, East Asia and North America, local variants of teas have been combined with steamed or frothed milk to create "tea latte". Coffee and tea shops now offer hot or iced latte versions of masala chai, matcha, and Royal Milk Tea. An Earl Grey latte is known as a "London fog".
    • Other flavorings can be added to the latte to suit the taste of the drinker. Vanilla, chocolate, and caramel are all popular variants.
    • In South Africa a red latte is made with rooibos tea, and has been known as a caffeine-free alternative to traditional tea or coffee-based latte. [21]
    • An alternative version of latte can be prepared with soy milk or oat milk, as both have the ability to foam in the same way as cow milk, with soy milk versions being more prevalent. Such alternatives are popular among people with lactose intolerance and vegans.
    • The Sea Salt Latte, a famous variation of the traditional style latte made with a salted milk foam over an espresso-based coffee, was invented and popularized by Taiwanese international cafe chain 85C Bakery Cafe. [22][23]

    Calling people "latte drinkers" pejoratively has become a common political attack in some Western cultures. The popularity of espresso drinking in large cities, especially among more affluent urban populations, has caused some to consider it elitist behavior. In the United States, conservative political commentators have been known to call their opponents "latte-drinking liberal elites." [24] [25] [26] [27] In Canadian politics, latte drinking is used to portray people as out-of-touch intellectuals and the antithesis of the Tim Hortons coffee drinker who is considered representative of an ordinary Canadian. [28] [29]

    According to a 2018 study, 16 % of liberals in the United States prefer lattes, whereas 9 % of conservatives and 11 % of moderates do. [30] The overwhelming majority of people, whether they are liberal, conservative or moderate, express a preference for regular brewed coffee. [30]

    If you’re familiar with the bakery selection at Starbucks or your local coffee shop, you’ll know they’re usually filled with coffee cakes, muffins, cinnamon buns, and loaf cakes. And while they’re tempting to grab as a snack with your iced latte, you can just as easily make any of them at home! (Especially if you’re trying to give up your coffee shop habit or you’re stuck inside!)

    Some of my favorites to make at home are NY crumb cake, these Levain chocolate chunk cookies, our favorite blueberry muffins, and the best chewy brownies ever.
