seriousaboutcoffee asked: howdy, i saw someone ask about white coffee.. maybe they were talking about the type of roast. it gets its name from how crazy under roasted it is. some people claim that it has more caffeine because the temp at which caffeine is "cooked away" (dont knw the scientific term >.<) is actually lower than what most people roast their beans at. i'm sorry i cant really remember anything else and i couldnt send Gratinum an ask. so just incase this is what they were asking about.. here you go
Wow thanks a lot :) <3
la-buck asked: Could you explain about white coffee?
Honestly I had to Google about it because I hadn’t heard the term. So what I have concluded:
1) In general white coffee is called the black coffee + cream or milk, also known as Light Coffee. White coffee should be distinguished from café au lait. White coffee uses chilled or room-temperature milk or other whitener, while café au lait uses heated or steamed milk.
2) In the United States, white coffee may also refer to coffee beans which have been roasted to the yellow roast level and when prepared as espresso produces a thin yellow brew, with a high acidic note.
3) Lebanese white coffee “ahweh bayda” is a caffeine-free drink made from water, orange blossom water, and sweetened with sugar if desired.
4) In Malaysia white coffee is referred to a drink made from coffee beans roasted in margarine, brewed and served with sweetened condensed milk in a cream-color form.
5) There is also a form of white coffee, native to Yemen, which refers to the ground shell of the coffee bean. This form of coffee earns its name from its color, and is brewed in the same manner as regular coffee, only with some spices added.
Thank you for asking
and many thanks to Wikipedia for the information :)
Back in the days of the Aztecs, cocoa beans were valuable not only for their culinary importance but also as currency. Cocoa beans were often given as gifts during important ceremonies and festivals. Even so, they also used the roasted beans to make a chocolate drink. Their version is much different from the hot chocolate we know today. The Aztecs actually drank it cold, flavored with wine and chili peppers, and not at all sweet.
Chocolate was discovered and brought to Europe in the early 1500s by the explorer Cortez. After its introduction in Spain, the drink began to be served hot, sweetened and without the chili peppers. The Spanish were very protective of their wonderful new beverage, and it was over a hundred years before news of it began to spread across Europe.
When it hit London (in the 1700s), chocolate houses became popular and very trendy. It was the English who started adding milk to their chocolate and it was enjoyed as an after-dinner beverage.
It wasn’t until the middle of the eighteenth century that chocolate began to evolve past its drinkable form. First, cocoa powder was invented in Holland. Cocoa powder blends much easier with milk or water, allowing for more creations to come. Then came chocolate as a candy by mixing cocoa butter with sugar and in 1876, milk chocolate was developed.

The terms caffè and latte were first used in 1847.
Latte originally means milk in Italian. The caffè version of this drink is an American invention. Caffè latte originated in Caffè Mediterraneum, a café in Berkeley, California and was brewed in its current form by Lino Meiorin for the first time. He added more milk to this otherwise strong cappuccino and called this new drink “Caffè Latte”.
Cappuccino in commercial form was introduced at the beginning of 20th Century when the patented espresso machines were introduced by Luigi Bezzera of Milan in 1901. These machines made the cappuccino very popular in cafes and restaurants and the current from developed by the 1950s.
