Coffee essence is a concentrated form of coffee made by steeping the grounds in boiling water, then strained.
As a concentrate, even when diluted it often has a stronger flavor profile than regularly brewed coffee. It’s a convenient way to produce different types of coffee drinks and is useful for many types of baked sweets and confectionary treats whose recipe calls for coffee flavor.
Coffee essence can also be used in the production of many nontraditional food items. Some of the different food and beverage products coffee essence can be used for include:
- Barbecue sauce
It can also be used in the production of products such as iced coffee beverages, and is often used in the concentrated syrups that are used in machines used to produce these kinds of beverages.
