If you recognize something about Atlanta summers, you recognize about humidity, warmth, and extra warmth. When fascinated by the Satisfaction Menu, we wished to craft an iced candy tea with this deeply southern local weather in thoughts.

That was when the Tropical Fog precipitated out of skinny air (nicely, foggy air). What would happen if the Piña Colada and the London Fog collided into one? A power so sturdy, it might get weeks of air time on the Climate Channel, my Aunt Leslie’s favourite morning tv present. This highly effective drink has quenched the thirst of many Atlantans this summer season.

The tangerine white tea, carrying tropical notes of passionfruit and pineapple, swirls along with home made orange-basil syrup. A cool breeze rolls in with a splash of Oatly. And because the pièce de résistance, a maraschino cherry tops off the drink to ship you torpedoing into trip dad mode. Bloom not gloom, child!

Anything you’d wish to share in regards to the drink?

The Tropical Fog is part of our Summer season Satisfaction Menu. As a queer-owned and queer-run espresso store, we wished to showcase our year-long satisfaction on this menu drop. Launching in June, we began off Satisfaction Month with a fittingly colourful array of drinks.

To call one other specialty drink: our Lavender Menace latte pays homage to reclaimed queer favourite, Lavender Menace. Through the Second Wave of Feminism, Betty Friedan first coined the time period as a disparaging ploy to exclude lesbians from the feminist motion. Friedan, a pacesetter with enormous sway and energy, wrongfully accused lesbians as a risk to the success of the motion. As an alternative of giving in to Friedan’s fear-mongering techniques, lesbians proudly took again Lavender Menace as their very own. Sporting the now-iconic stencil lettering (Lavender Menace) on their t-shirts, they pushed ahead for their very own rights and freedoms. One other certainly one of our satisfaction drinks, the U-Haul Spritzer playfully pokes enjoyable on the beloved trope of queer {couples} renting a U-Haul, solely after a short while collectively.

With the artistic path of Andrew Lyman, barista, photographer, and content material creator for Finca, we styled and captured our drinks on digital camera. All of us put a number of exhausting work and vitality into the launch of this menu and the Tropical Fog. As a neighborhood espresso store, we’re excited to see our Satisfaction Menu generate large smiles and begin vital conversations. Isn’t that what espresso is all about?
