Like most people when they want an elevated coffee they ask for a cappuccino, I am no exception to the rule. The cappuccino is my go to, and I figured last week it would be time to change up my coffee game. With over 1.4 billion cups of coffee poured every day in the world, I reckoned it shouldn’t be hard to find a new go to which could be inspired by different traditions, cultures and personal tastes. So this week I am starting a list of brew methods to get the ball rolling on this amazing diverse seed. Feel free to email us @ info@bushah.com to add to what I hope will be an outstanding compendium of amazing coffee beverages.
