Don't know what to order?
If you don't know what to order or feel overwhelmed by the many options, don't worry. Our Baristas can help.
Let's do a little exploring right now.
What flavors do you normally like? Nutty? Fruity? Chocolaty? Try to determine what you naturally like or are in the mood for right now.
As far as the menu, if you know a few basic building blocks, you will see how simple our menu really is.
Everything starts with espresso! What's espresso? It is strong black coffee made by forcing hot water under pressure through finely ground coffee beans in an espresso machine. Espresso is different than drip coffee and ground differently than brewed coffee. Espresso is a concentrated coffee shot mostly used as the base to make other coffee drinks such as mochas and lattes.
Here are the building blocks of great gourmet espresso coffee:
Espresso Shots - The concentrated coffee created by an espresso machine.
Americano - Espresso and hot water creating a modern version of brewed coffee.
Iced Coffee - Espresso and iced water. Our Iced Coffee is created using our cold brew espresso which is made when the ground espresso is cold-water steeped for 24 hours. This allows the cold brew to retain all the natural, delicious flavors without the bitter acids and oils naturally found in the coffee. This creates a cold brew that is 70% less acidic and easier on the stomach.
Cappuccino - Half espresso and milk and the other half foam. Foam is created by frothing milk with steam. Add flavor such as hazelnut or vanilla, or get a dusting of cinnamon, nutmeg or chocolate powder on top of your foam if you wish. Just ask.
Latte - Espresso and milk. Lattes are also great flavored with any of our 50+ flavors. Some customer favorites are a Vanilla Latte and a Caramel Latte.
Mocha - Espresso, milk and chocolate. The chocolate can be dark chocolate or white chocolate.
Stoked Mocha - This is our Signature Drink here at Stoked Coffee and is created using espresso, white chocolate and caramel drizzle. If you don't know what to order, start here! Our customers are crazy about our Stoked Mocha.
Now that you know the building blocks, you can learn to combine flavors and customize your drink.
Here is an example. Say you are dairy sensitive. Swap out the milk for soy milk. Say you are in the mood for something really chocolaty. Get the Chocolate Lovers version of whatever hot or frozen drink you are ordering. Whipped cream or no whipped cream? Extra flavor? Protein? DeCaf? Sugar-free or normal? Are you in the mood for a standard Mocha or do you want something paired with that chocolate like caramel, mint or a fruit like strawberry or cherry?
See, it's not that difficult once you know the building blocks.
