What does dirty matcha mean?
Firstly I'm sure you're wondering what does dirty matcha mean?
Dirty matcha is a shot of espresso mixed with a matcha latte, hence the name dirty matcha!
This trendy drink may have been an accident or an intentional mix of the two caffeinated beverages, whichever it was we are happy it was made.

Now, I know what you're thinking, is matcha good with a shot of espresso?. Well if you love matcha and you love coffee then you will definitely love both together

Plus when you use Rejuvenation Water's Nespresso compatible pods, you get all the benefits of matcha and keto coffee in one drink!
For the coffee we have used Rejuvenation Water's Nespresso compatible keto coffee pods, not only are they good for the planet as they are 100% compostable and packaged in cardboard boxes, but they are good for you too.
What is MCT Oil?
MCT oil is a supplement with many health benefits, along with creating a smooth creamy espresso. MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides and is found in the fat of coconuts.
Studies have found that MCT oil can help to manage blood sugars, promote weight-loss and provide fast acting energy for the body.

The coffee used for the Nespresso compatible keto coffee pods is single origin Brazilian 100% Arabica beans.
The Brazilian Arabica coffee is well balance with a sweet, nutty flavour mixed with a chocolaty roast taste. Despite their medium-dark roast, the coffee retains it’s sweet taste, avoiding unpleasant bitterness, making them great as an espresso or in our dirty matcha latte recipe!
When it comes to matcha, it is important to choose a high quality powder, that has gone through the proper harvesting and grinding process.
At rejuvenation water, we use premium grade organic Japanese matcha. The leaves are covered 28 days before harvesting to increase the chlorophyll production and slowly dried and milled using stones.
Each pod is also packed with added prebiotic fibre and 8 B vitamins. This means not only will you get all the health benefits from the matcha but the added benefits of the B vitamins such as promoting the healthy growth of skin, hair and nails.
Like the keto coffee pods, rejuvenation water's Nespresso compatible matcha pods are also compostable.
For the milk we used whole cows milk, to create a thick creamy latte. We also frothed the milk on a cold setting to create a light texture that would sit on top of the matcha coffee.
However, if you don't want to use cow's milk any milk alternative will have a similar taste and you can buy a barista version to help with the frothing.
Firstly, pour your milk into a milk frother and set to a cold setting. If you don't have a milk frother you can skip this step or use a small whisk.
Next, pop your Nespresso compatible keto coffee pod in your Nespresso machine and press the one shot button, pour into a jug and set aside.
Then do the same for your Nespresso matcha pod.
Once you have everything ready, add ice to a tall glass and pour over the keto coffee. Next add the milk, spooning in the frothy layer. Finally add the matcha. To drink stir and combine all the layers.
