Quiet time – News and Updates – The Red Brick Cafe

Now that the tourist season has officially ended Mike and I can once again start to play with new flavour combinations.  Our regulars are back into their taste test modes and eagerly awaiting new flavours to try.  It was our regulars that ok’d the Peanut Surprise and Bacon and Maple Latte.  So soon we will have new tea lattes and hot chocolate options.
Our orange hot chocolate will stay, as well as the peppermint.  We have a new white hot chocolate that we can play with to make another signature hot chocolate.  The Belgium Dark and Chocolate Truffle are another two that can be played with.  Cost is the biggest consideration to take into account as Mike and I want something different but something that is available to almost everyone.
Our other option is to play with our espresso.  There are so many different ways that it can be used.  An espresso in a hot chocolate is almost as effective as a Red Eye (a shot of espresso in a coffee).  A little bit of steam from the steam wand can change an everyday regular hot chocolate over the top.  It gives it a frothy top layer that is like whipped cream but without the extra sweetness and calories.
I guess what I am trying to say is that, yes, there are the chain coffee shops that can spend millions on product testing but we find that our regulars are an awesome source.  We don’t plan on getting huge, just better.
See you soon!
