Topic: "Espresso Coffee Soda" (19 msgs / 481 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
The café I'm running owner's main biz is a "gourmet soda" shop & deli. =
Debi
& I stopped in today to check it out (and to pick up a couple cases of =
diet
gourmet soda's for the café). While I was filling some mixed cases =
Debi was
checking out the wall wide coolers of endless soda's and handed me a =
bottle
saying we gotta try this. Manhattan Special brand Espresso Coffee Soda =
(diet
version). Dang if it isn't half bad! I'll probably have some to sample =
at
PNWG V but not like bottles for everyone @ $1.75 per bottle, $36 case of
24... That's the prices for the gourmet soda pop and place was doing a =
brisk
business today. Saw a number of people picking up cases. Over a dozen
different non-diet just rootbeers, the only one I really recognized was =
good
old fashion Dad's. Sioux City brand saw root beer, sarsaparilla and =
birch
beer. (Everything's bottled of course) Fun stuff!
Also had a Boylan Diet Cane Cola soda with lunch, very good distinctive
taste with excellent finish and linger believe it not. Nothing like Coke =
or
Pepsi etc. Already tried the Boylan Diet Black Cherry Soda Thursday for =
the
drive home from the café which was also very good. 
Wondering about trying my hand at making a homeroast fresh "espresso =
soda"
using some kind of seltzer or carbonation injection thingy or something!

Boylan is great stuff. Their diet sodas are sweetened with Splenda  
and Sunette instead of aspartame; and their regular sodas with cane  
sugar, not high fructose corn syrup. Costco sells their diet sodas (3  =
bottles ea. of orange, root beer, cherry and cream) by the case.

I would love to see a Coffee Pop produced.  I also love Boylan soda.  The
cane sugar really does make a difference.  Jared

There is a brand that's imported from Italy we get here in the little
Italian grocery stores (the ones that still
exist!). I forgot the name - they carry orange soda, too - very, very tart.
I never drink carbonated beverages. Hate them - and nearly forgot how I used
to get this.
The coffee soda they import is SO good..

It wasn't the same brand as the well known oranciata - but their orange, or
citrus sodas
taste like that.
Love that coffee one, tho - if I visit the Italian store before I move (it's
closer to where I
am now), I'll check to see what the brand is... good stuff.

Hi miKe,
I tried putting coffee in my soda siphon.  If you've never seen one,
it is a thick-walled glass bottle (takes one liter of water with some
room to spare) with screw-on top that has a hose running down into the
bottle.  The top has a holder that takes 8 g carbon dioxide cartridges
to charge up the siphon.  It does horrible things to the taste of good
coffee.  I think that the problem is that the carbon dioxide drops the
pH (makes the coffee or water acidic).  I'm sure that there are ways
to get this to work, but I dropped it there.

cameron, I have something similar to what you describe but mine is 
powered from a 5lb co2 bottle and you can use a regular liter bottle 
from the store with a special cap.
anyways, CO2 is very bitter / pungent  to begin with, and the taste of 
the gas will definately throw off the coffee.
Orange juice doesn't do too bad, or kool aid types of drinks.  Milk. 
don't... coffee .. don't... tea... not too bad.
id not waste too much time on the coffee, as it really doesn't take on 
any characteristics that'd make it pleasent when infusing with co2

15) From: miKe mcKoffee
I was thinking adding charged water to espresso might work rather than
charging coffee itself. Might be able to squeeze out the ~$50 or so to get
one before PNWG...

Use nitrous oxide instead of CO2, a la whipped cream. They sell tiny bottles
of it for those whipped cream makers. The nitrous bottles look like the CO2
ones for BB guns.

I'll look when I go out today...I think the Chinotto is made from 
orange rinds..Tastes great, though...

18) From: Aaron
Ahh.  the 'whippit' bottles.  sans baloon....  I remember those.
Thing is, even though the cartridges might look the same, what about the 
dimensions at the mouth / seal.   Will the nitrous cartridge work in the 
co2 machine.?   It might be definately worth a look into though.   I 
agree though, the Nitrous should have a more neutral taste to it than 
the co2.
Thanks for the info there.  if I had a rigup that took those i might try 
it... or I might put coffee into my whipped cream bottle and shoot it 
out that way... ill have to think on this one.

19) From: Cameron Forde
The cartridges for the BB guns are 12 g compared to 8 g for 1 liter
siphons.  It hadn't occurred to me to try the nitrous in the coffee.
For some reason I'm thinking decaf here.
