This is where my home brewing starts and ends. With @pranachai . You already know I don’t make coffee at home. But brewing Prana Chai doesn’t require quite the science and attention. It has more to do with specialty coffee than you might think.
So it is that I used to find third wave cafes by looking if they had “flat white” on their menu. This used to be a sign of coffee knowledge in Germany. That time is long gone. Now any trendy cafe, that is no more than a business concept, has learned that words like “flat white“, “artisan“ and “avocado toast“ attract a lot of people. So now, my easiest instruction how to find an awesome coffee shop, is to look for Prana Chai. Seriously. .
This stuff is legit. Sticky, fresh, not too sweet, so comforting and spiced, and better than any „homemade chai“ I have tasted before (and I’ve tasted lots who claim theirs is the best). If you see colorful cylinder boxes of powder on the shelf of a coffee shop, walk straight out and look for #onlythegoodstuff . A coffee shop like that clearly doesn’t have too high standards.
But today the topic of #coffeecommunityweek actually is #homebrewing . So back to home. Well yeah, ok I don’t know what to write. This is as “specialty coffee” as it gets in my home. Ok you can tell I only want to talk about cafes .
