A few weeks ago I decided to create a few new names for some of my favorite coffee drinks just for fun. I work at Fuller’s Bookstore, and attached is a really great coffee shop ingenuously named “Coffee by the Books.” What this means for me is a steady flow of really good coffee and espresso and I’ve even learned how to steam milk and pull my own shots!
Here are some of the drinks I came re-named (I wish I had some tasty pictures to go with) and a little description/sales pitch I made follows right below.
The John Woolman (Cafe Au Lait)
Steamed Milk + coffee = The John Woolman
Warm, Tasty, Frothy Milk with your favorite cup of coffee makes for a soothing drink. It’s perfect when you’re in the mood for something quiet, mild and warm. Great for raining days!
Oh and I like to put a little cinnamon on the top!
The William Penn (Americano)
1 shot of espresso and hot water = the William Penn
Perfectly roasted espresso beans mixed in with a little hot water to grieve you a purist tasting cup of Joe. The classic American and the classic American drink all mashed up in one classic cup.
The Quaker (My Own Little Mix)
3 shots of espresso + steamed milk = the Quaker
3 shots of perfectly roasted espresso beans and warm, tasty, frothy milk.
Finals are coming up – need I say more?
I think the intial idea came from a chat Simon and I had a long while back over what kinds of names we’d use for Quaker beers. But that will have to be another post.
