How are people menuing blended coffee drinks? Today someone asked me the difference between a frappe and a blended coffee. I was totally cuaght off guard (maybe because it was so early in the AM.... or maybe because it is currently 0 degrees outside).
Frappe - I always thought this was a Starbucks thing. Like how they call a 16 oz a grande. Ingredients: ice, water/milk/soy, coffee, thickening gum/agent, flavorings.
Blended Ice Coffee (BIC) - I first saw this phrase from Big Train and have seen lots of independents using the phrase. Ingredients: ice, water/milk/soy, coffee, powdered base, flavorings.
Am I missing anything?
We use to call them coffee smoothies for about ten years but when Bucks call them Frappe we change the name .Everyone would ask what was a coffee smoothie .We make our own using cold brew coffee toddy, milk, ice, chocolate and a base.
Thanks for sharing -
