Espresso Drinks

Our Roast Master selects the best Arabica beans every season from various plantations and roasts them in-house, just a few feet away from our brewers, to brew the freshest cup of gourmet coffee possible. We slow-grind our roasted beans just seconds before the coffee is brewed using charcoal-filtered water at constant temperature of 190 degrees to ensure that molecular and flavor characteristics remain intact to create a stimulating flavorful cup of Joe.

Espresso

Hot or Iced – our espresso is a concentrated beverage brewed by forcing a small amount of nearly boiling water under pressure through finely ground Italian Roast coffee beans. Espresso has a thicker consistency than brewed coffee. As a result of the pressurized brewing process the flavors and chemicals in a typical cup of coffee are very concentrated and brews with a dark, reddish-brown foam called crèma.

Mocha Espresso

Hot or Iced – Shots of freshly pulled Italian espresso stirred with silky smooth hot cocoa and slightly frothy steamed milk stirred and topped with whipped cream.

White Mocha Espresso

Hot or Iced – Shots of freshly pulled espresso stirred with Ghirardelli white chocolate and slightly frothy steamed milk stirred and topped with whipped cream. Sweeter than Mocha Espresso but the same amount of caffeine!

Polar Capp

Iced granita – Less sweeter than frappes, this flavor-packed tiny icy pebbles of made from mix of chocolate, finest Colombian coffee and milk solids are slowly churned and chilled in granita machine to make a silky smooth granita drink. Only a master frappetier can figure out the secret recipe of our most popular cold drink.

Cappuccino

Hot – Microfoam is created by introducing very tiny bubbles of air into the milk while steaming, giving the milk a velvety texture. This microfoamed milk is mixed with espresso to create our traditional cappuccino. Variations of the mixtures are usually called wet cappuccino (white cappuccino, also known as cappuccino chiaro) with more milk than normal, and dry cappuccino (dark cappuccino, also known as cappuccino scuro) with less steamed milk than normal.

Caffe Latte

Hot or Iced – American invention, popularized in Seattle, the steamed milk mixed with shots of espresso and topped with little bit of foam to create this very simple yet very pleasurable drink. Iced version is prepared with chilled milk.

VanillaCaffé Latteor any flavor

Hot or Iced – Steamed milk mixed with vanilla syrup and caramel sauce, topped with shots of espresso, little bit of foam or whipped cream with drizzles of more caramel sauce. The macchia is the little “spot” of crèma left on top of the milk to clearly distinguish that is a macchiato and not a caffè latte, where the espresso traditionally has been added before the milk, hence having no “mark”.

Caramel Macchiato

Hot or Iced – Steamed milk mixed with vanilla syrup and caramel sauce, topped with shots of espresso, little bit of foam or whipped cream with drizzles of more caramel sauce. The macchia is the little “spot” of crèma left on top of the milk to clearly distinguish that is a macchiato and not a caffè latte, where the espresso traditionally has been added before the milk, hence having no “mark”.

Eye Opener

Hot or Iced – Coffee of the day is supercharged with a double shot of Italian espresso. Perfect choice when you need to stay awake longer.

Caffe Americano

Hot or Iced – Shots of freshly pulled espresso with piping hot water create this grander cousin of brewed coffee. The name derives its origins from WWII when American GIs in Europe would pour hot water into an espresso to approximate the coffee to which they were accustomed. It was then adapted in the United States by large chains who sought to create a marketable fusion of drip coffee and espresso to sell to a mass market.
