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.
