The Coffee Industry Wants You to Put Turmeric in Your Espresso


July 9, 2018 Home By

World of Coffee wrapped up in Amsterdam at the end of June, and with it, a host of new gear taking home Best New Product awards. World of Coffee Amsterdam is the second event of the year organized by the Specialty Coffee Association, and again judged a turmeric chai mix the best specialty standalone beverage — Dona’s Turmeric Concentrate at the Specialty Coffee Expo in April, and now Zuma’s Organic Turmeric Chai mix at World of Coffee.

The mix — a blend of ground turmeric, ground ginger and natural orange flavoring — is organic and harbors no preservatives, artificial flavoring or artificial food dyes. Though it can be mixed with milk or water, or enjoyed as a standalone beverage, the brand recommends a teaspoon or so tossed into a shot of espresso for a new take on an old drink.

Zuma’s Turmeric Chai mix can be had from a few barista and café-centric sites — it’s $16 here.
