Are you berry crazy? Does the taste of strawberries, blueberries and blackberries titillate your tongue? Well you’re going to fall head over heels in love with this coffee Frappuccino featuring these delightful little treats of nature.
If ever there were a drink that was both a boost to your immune system while also giving you that extra pep in your step; it’s the Berry Frappuccino.
This is guilt-free indulgence when both the coffee and the berries are fresh and full of anti-oxidant goodness.
So, you love the Berry Frappuccino but thought till now, that you had to trudge to your local cafe to get one. Not always an appealing prospect when you are in your pyjamas on Saturday morning.
Plus you are never quite sure how much of the taste is from natural berries and how much from added synthetic syrups, flavors and essences. Not to mention that each indulgence burns a fair size hole in your pocket.
That’s exactly why you need a proper machine-free coffee Frappé/ Frappuccino recipe where you ensure everything is pure, natural and just right.
Trust us, the process is more fun than you ever imagined. We recommend turning on your favorite music and grooving while making this beautiful drink. Not that it will take more than one track to make it.
But first bit about the health packed ingredients that go into this drink.
To the Batcave!
Fun fact: Batology is the term given to the study of blackberries (yes, really!) So if you were considering changing your major of 16th century French poetry to something else – you now know that Batology is the way forward. Just think of the amount of knowledge you’ll accumulate. But if you’re not inclined to do so, here are a few fun facts about blackberries that will turn your noggin upside down:
- Though called black, they are actually dark blue in color.
- They are super rich in bioflavonoids and vitamin C.
- They’re sometimes known to have funky names like thimbleberries and dewberries.
- Are you planning on being super close to someone after drinking your berry coffee frappe? Add extra blackberries… they prevent bad breath!
If we gave you any more facts on blackberries, you’d probably need to pay for a Batology certification course, so onwards! It takes more than a single berry to make this coffee at home.
Very Berry Strawberry
Strawberries are the ultimate flavor. Preferred the world over for their sexy red color, juicy texture and alluring sweetness, this is one berry that doesn’t need an intro.
Make sure your fridge is stocked with these before whipping up the berrylicious coffee frappe. They also come in handy.
Always Remember the Blueberries
All berries are ripe with health benefits. But the blueberry stands brighter than them all. When it comes to antioxidants, for instance, the blueberry ranks higher than 40 other fruits. Also, it’s history of consumption dates way back in the time machine than the coffee frappe or even coffee itself - blueberries have been munched for over 13,000 years! Last but not least, one of the more interesting health benefits linked to blueberries is their ability to help reverse memory loss caused by aging!
Now, in case you were prepping this drink for a special someone you just met that night . . . it may be helpful to throw in a bunch of extra blueberries so you can remember that name . . . when it matters most.

Why machine- made coffee isn't The Real Deal
Machine- made coffees simply don't cut it. Their whole process (or tech, as millennials might put it) is all seriously messed up.
Coffee machines force very hot water at high pressure through delicate coffee grounds, which is the reason for the burnt and bitter taste.
This is no way to treat something so vulnerable.
How can such violence, this savagery, yield great coffee?
Truly great coffee, extracted slowly and lovingly, does not taste bitter.
In the Caffè di Artisan micro-filtery flavors are teased out from coffee beans over days...not forced out.
You can taste the difference!

Want to know The Secret to The Best Coffee in The World?
(But first, a bit of coffee history: Coffee was never meant to be made by machines. It started out as a slow process. But an ugly compromise, a dirty shortcut, was invented in order to mass-produce coffee: the coffee machine. The Espresso machine was patented in 1884 - It was the start of the industrialization of coffee.)
Here's the way we do it
The world's finest beans. Fresh, Gradient Roasted, Fresh Ground. Then, slow, artisanal extraction, over days in our artisanal micro-filtery with Natural Alkaline Water from the mountains.
Finally packaged into Liquid Single Serve 100% Recyclable Pods/Capsules.
Simply Gorgeous Coffee. Without Machines.
