A new coffee offering has just launched nationwide in the eleven stores of Esquires Coffee in Ireland, and as with all the best coffee trends, it's orginated from Melbourne, Australia.
What's this new drink you'll more than likely be ordering every morning?
The Magic coffee consists of steamed milk over a double shot of ristretto. The name is derived from the ‘magic’ ratio of milk to coffee which strikes the perfect balance, and has been popular in Oz for the past few years.
Esquires are apparently the first coffee house to bring this to the country (it'll set you back €2.75), and say that:
“We first came across the offering of a ‘Magic’ coffee in February during a coffee tour of cutting-edge artisan coffee houses in Australia and New Zealand. We were intrigued by the fact that our hosts kept referencing this drink over and above the Flat White, which, as we all know, is the much loved beverage that originated ‘Down Under’.
Interestingly enough, Magic never appeared on any coffee menu and it was very much a well-kept secret between baristas and those in the know. Now, with it becoming more popular, it has started to appear on menus and a select number of Antipodean coffee houses in London are now promoting Magic as the ‘must-have’ beverage.
The new Magic coffee is currently available in all eleven Esquires Coffee stores in Ireland. The cost is €2.75.
We've a feeling this is gonna be the go-to cafe order from now on...
