White Coffee is a new trend, and it is amazing to see new ways of enjoying this beverage that has been around for so many years.

You may have seen White Coffees advertised in hipster Coffee shops as a health fad or a way to get peak caffeine.

Many people want to know if it is actually white. Does it really exist? This is because they know that the coffee beans are green before being roasted.

Cafes along the East and West Coast are offering a White Coffee alternative to Flat Whites.

What is White Coffee? Is it Actually White?

White Coffee simply means that the coffee beans are roasted halfway through. They are roasted at a lower temperature to give them a light, nutty flavor.

It is used for espresso drinks and not just simple brewed coffee. Coffee beans that have been roasted for shorter times are less bitter because the natural sugars in the coffee beans don’t caramelize.

Malaysia’s original white coffee was created in the Old Town, Ipoh. It was made with beans that were roasted in margarine and brewed in sweetened condensed milk.

People are always confused about White Coffees. They think that it means a coffee that contains milk, which is not true. It is actually the type of coffee beans used to brew the coffees and the way those beans were prepared.

It is more nutritious than full-roasted coffee. Because of its high caffeine content, it provides greater alertness. Also, It is healthier than regular coffee, and this is because the characteristics of white coffee are not lost during roasting.

White VS Black Coffee

There are three main differences:

  • Roasting process
  • Time of roasting
  • Flavor
White Coffee:

White beans are roasted for a short time at lower temperatures. They are slow-roasted and stay in the coffee roaster for longer. Furthermore, they have a distinct flavor that is different from regular coffees.

If you’re used to the rich, smokey aromas and flavors of regular roasted coffee, we recommend adding one teaspoon of regular roasted coffee.

Black Coffee:

Black beans are roasted at higher temperatures for a longer time. It is without any other additives, except water and coffee.

It is also known as black coffee because it doesn’t contain any milk or other ingredients to lighten it.

Black coffee is an excellent choice if you’re trying to lose weight. It has lower calories than coffee with sugar and milk. A cup of black coffee contains just 3 to 4 calories, while a cup with milk and sugar can contain around 50 to 60 calories.
