It’s a good feeling when staff are enthusiastic about the product and want to create. Our manager John started out as a customer who watched our feed for new flavors, and now he has created one.
This was made with some awesome beans from Calabasas Coffee Co. He got a lot of feedback from all the staff, but especially Syd who helped refine the flavor through a bunch of iterations.
Vietnamese coffee is typically brewed strong, sometimes with chicory, and then sweetened with condensed milk. But flavors present differently when frozen, so making an ice pop isn’t as simple as taking a recipe and freezing. John worked hard to find the right balance between the flavors and now it’s on the menu and available in store.
