Look: Top 8 coffee trends to watch out for this year in UAE

From single-origin to fermented coffee, take your ‘cup of Joe’ to the next level with new, interesting brews that are gaining popularity

Whether you like cappuccino, espresso, or a signature brew, there is something for everyone at the World of Coffee exhibition which kicked off in Dubai on Wednesday.

As some of the finest coffee-makers, tasters, and lovers came together to check out the latest technologies and brews, team KT has put together a list of trends that coffee aficionados should watch out for this year.

Fermented coffee

Similar to kombucha, fermented coffee has been catching on in popularity. It is made by fermenting coffee beans using a controlled process. Said to improve gut health, this trend is expected to become even more popular in the next few years.

Alternative milk

With more people being diagnosed with health issues and dietary restrictions, usage of alternative milk in coffee is becoming commonplace, with oat milk being the most popular. Other choices include almond and soy milk.

Roasting coffee beans

More coffee houses are opting to roast their own beans rather than buy roasted coffee beans. “This ensures that they have better quality control over the process of coffeemaking,” said Emirati barista Nooran Albanny, who has set up her own roastery in addition to her café Coffee Architect.

Single-origin coffee

While the popularity of blended coffee has been burgeoning for the last few years, this year belongs to single-origin coffee, according to Aparna Barretto, managing director of Bon café. “Single-origin coffee is coffee coming from one single country and farm,” she said. “People have begun appreciating it more.”

Cold brew

One trend that has become quite popular among coffee lovers is the cold brew. Made by steeping coffee grounds in water at cool or room temperatures for a period between 10-20 hours, cold brew can be served cold or hot. Believed to have some health benefits, the cold brew is here to stay, according to experts.
