Today(yesterday)’s festival item was truly a blessing in how it soothed my very fragile mind from today (yesterday)! The day had felt overwhelming for no identifiable reason, so a kind offer to accompany me to my location for the day was very welcomed. Location of choice: The Last Crumb Cafe.
|Take a trip to Seville with this hot chocolate flavoured with orange blossom.
Served with a orange vanilla marshmallow.
Note: Cost may be increased due to getting it with almond milk!
I was firstly impressed by the wonderful foam on this drink – almond milk is tough to get foamy sometimes! It immediately reminded me of a Christmas chocolate orange (the kind that you “whack and unwrap”)! I personally enjoy those flavours together, so it was delicious for me. Not everyone is a fan of fruit and chocolate, though.
Beyond the foam, the orange-chocolate flavour became more clearly its orange blossom-chocolate flavour – there was an added aroma to the flavour, as the milk was much more heavily infused with it than was the foam of the drink. It took a few sips to get used to, but once I did, it was lovely! A welcomed aftertaste that warmed me up on what was another very chilly day.
It was thicker and creamier than I had expected, perhaps this came from the type of chocolate used to make the drink; regardless, the almond milk turned out to be a nice choice. The nutty, chocolaty, and citrusy flavours all meshed well together for my liking! Personally, I believe it would make a good chocolate bar flavour.
The orange vanilla marshmallow was gigantic and covered in vanilla powder that blew across the table every time we took a breath near the cup, ha ha. It added a slight vanilla sweetness to the drink.
I loved the decorations inside the shop – plates and elegant tea cups all over the walls made it dainty and reminded me of a grandmother’s collection, but presented in a younger and more modern way. Definitely inspiring for future decorating ideas!
