Profile Information

What is your position in the coffee industry?
barista, coffee enthusiast
Where are you located? ( City and Country )
Spencer, Ia
How many years have you been in the industry?
If you are a barista or shop, are you interested in a barista exchange with another coffee shop/barista?
Tell us more about your coffee shop or barista skills.
I am a barista-in-training who is a reformed tea-only lover. I have come to appreciate the subtleties of coffee thanks to my friends (and now co-workers) at the Shaky Tree. I learn more about coffee every day and my palate is constantly surprised by the many varied flavors and textures coffee is capable of forming. I am a student...I am here to learn. (By the way, I still love tea!)
What cities or countries are you interested in traveling to?
All countries European. China, Japan, Russia, anyplace in South America, Egypt. Okay, basically, anyplace in the world.
About Me:
I like black forest cherry two-bite tarts. They go really well with a machiatto.
About My Company:
The Shaky Tree is all about creating a space where not only do we serve great coffee, but we invite people to make it a space for creativity and community. It has become a bit of an artistic hub here in Spencer and will hopefully continue to grow into a creative cornerstone.

Quest for the Perfect Chai Latte

Posted on January 28, 2008 at 2:51pm 0 Comments

I am on the lookout for a winning Chai Latte combination. I am working with a very nice spice tea (the 500 Mile Chai blend from Gong Fu teas), milk and have been tampering with what to sweeten it with. Honey just doesn't seem to bring out the spices in the tea as much as a small blast of cinnamon syrup does. Any suggestions from anyone out there?

Hello melisa and wellcome a board.
If you like the black forest give this recipe a try:
1 shot espresso
20ml cherry syrup (da vinci gourmet is my favorite)
1 tbsp dark chocolate combine with 120ml milk and throw it in the above ingridients.
Garnish with whipped cream and sauce chocolate.
