While BCB Café has been known for its bagels and breakfast sandwiches, its growing menu of beverages has stolen the spotlight. Each of our coffees, teas, juices, and smoothies have their own particular flavor profiles, but our espresso beverages tend to be the most popular. You can order your coffee or espresso drink hot, iced, brewed, or blended so that it fits your unique tastes. You really can’t go wrong with anything you order, but here are five BCB Café coffee drinks you’ve got to try.
The Cuban Shot is one of the few drinks you can’t order iced, blended, or as a large—and for good reason. The little espresso shot is loaded with caffeine and just a little will give you enough energy to last you the entire day. It’s a dark roast espresso shot sweetened and brewed with sugar so it actually infuses with the coffee (rather than just dissolving). It’s a sweet, delicious shot of heaven that will punch you in the face—and we promise, you’ll love it.
Dulce De Leche
You may order caramel lattes on the regular, but if you want to mix it up just a bit, try our Dulce De Leche. Similar to caramel, dulce de leche is made of sugar, milk (as opposed to water), and sometimes cinnamon, so you can expect a creamier, richer taste. Our drink is made with a shot of espresso, milk, and a touch of dulce de leche. The smooth blend of sweet caramel-flavored latte with rich espresso is a great way to start your day or awesome for an afternoon pick-me-up.
Madagascar Vanilla Latte
Madagascar vanilla beans are typically the most popular type of vanilla. With a creamy, velvety, overwhelmingly sweet (in a good way!) flavor, it’s one of the best ways to cut the bitterness often associated with strong coffee. And using it in a creamy, refreshing latte is the best way to treat yourself to a light, sweet caffeine buzz. The flavor works well hot or iced too, so no matter what time of year you order the Madagascar Vanilla Latte, it’ll always hit the spot.
This drink is packed with bold flavors! It’s a Latin-inspired chocolate mocha with a kick of cinnamon and spice. The rich blend of coffee and cream with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cayenne pepper will stimulate your taste buds and warm you up. If you fancy one on a warmer day, try it iced or blended—the iciness of the drink paired with the spicy flavor notes makes for a distinct taste that may become your favorite option.
White Chocolate Americano
Most coffee shops readily serve up White Chocolate Mochas (we do too!), but for a different and delicious spin on the drink, order a White Chocolate Americano instead. Espresso shots are topped with hot water to produce a light layer of crema, which tends to have more depth and boldness than a mocha (espresso with milk). When you mix in the white chocolate flavoring, the result is a sweet, rich sip that gives you the espresso buzz without the weight of added dairy.
Of course, you can always make your favorite beverage even more unique. BCB Café offers add-ons and substitutions for you to customize your drink. You can add an espresso shot, or switch out the regular milk for soy or almond milk. You can also choose from eight flavored syrups: Caramel Sauce, Pomegranate, Vanilla, Raspberry, Hazelnut, Peppermint, Irish Cream, and Strawberry.
