It may not be the breakfast of champions, but cheese coffee might be an option for those willing to give their mug a little mix-up. Some of us can’t seem to get enough of the fluffy stuff.

Cheese coffee is not what it may sound like. It is more like a sweet and savory, succulent take on whipped cream. This cream cheese foam was first popularized when Taiwanese cheese tea started showing up in cafés across the United States.

"When the sweet and savory taste of the cheese cream meets the pure and aromatic coffee flavor, it's unlike anything you've ever experienced before. The cream adds a twist to the coffee and gives a very smooth texture," says Jenny Zheng, founder of Little Fluffy Head, in Rachael Ray magazine. "Our blend coffee is a mix of medium and dark roast, so it gives a very rich coffee taste to stay in balance with the cheese cream.

There are a few ways to drink cheese coffee, and each method "produces a slightly different taste." Zheng suggests sipping the frothy beverage directly through the cup.

Mixing the layers gives the coffee a milky flavor, which is "similar to a white chocolate mocha but with a little salty, cheesy finish," the article states. 

If you’re willing to give a different take on coffee a try, you might discover a new favorite, which is like finding hidden treasure.

In this video by Food52, Matt shows us how he makes iced coffee with cream cheese foam. If you’re ready for beautiful pictures like dalgona coffee produces, this is another option that will make your mug easily say “Cheese!”
