IRISH ZEN COFFEE RITUAL

IRISH ZEN COFFEE RITUAL

At StayZenned, we believe in the power of mindful rituals to kickstart your day. While we appreciate the Irish for their contributions to coffee culture, we've reimagined the traditional Irish Coffee into a mindful Irish style morning coffee ritual. This coffee blend combines the awakening essence of coffee with a touch of mindfulness and wellness... and a touch of booze.

A BRIEF JOURNEY THROUGH TIME:

The rich tapestry of history where coffee and spirits have entwined through the ages is a wee worth indulging if you may. Coffee's origins date back to the 15th century, inspired by the curious antics of dancing goats. The timeline for the discovery of alcohol is more elusive, with evidence of beer prescriptions by ancient Sumerian doctors as far back as 2011 B.C.

These two worlds converged in Ethiopia when adventurous souls harnessed the caffeine-rich berries consumed by their spirited goats. This experiment gave rise to a brew known as fermented coffee-berry pulp, a delightful elixir often referred to as coffee wine. The rest, as they say, is history.

In this glorious history, countless recipes have emerged, each a celebration of the harmonious union of coffee and spirits. Among them, we proudly present our rendition of Frozen Irish Coffee, featuring StayZenned's irresistible Irish Zen Coffee Ritual.

Our Irish Zen Coffee Ritual combines these two worlds, resulting in a brew that not only awakens your senses but also nurtures your soul.
