Drink Development at R2

Last monday saw a few of the R2 baristas brainstorming and shopping for the ingredients of possible specialty drinks. I photographed some of the process. 

Ingredients: result of shopping

We ended up developing two drinks, the orange mocha, and the chocolate chili latte. The orange mocha is currently being served at R2, and comes with the lovely garnish of a chocolate-coated sliver of candied orange peel from Delight on Queen West.

We will be serving the chocolate chili latte later this fall.
