Topic: Scheherazade Shot > +Re: Cardamon (36 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
After visiting Phuong Tran (2005 US Barista Champion) at her Lava Java =
café
Labor Day with POETS been playing with various signature drink =
techniques
like infusing milk with herb or spice and/or 50:50 steamed coconut
milk/cow's milk dessert caps. Cardamom thread inspired a bit of non-milk
espresso fun. 
Pre-heat demi, add 6 green cardamom seeds (Penzeys of course:-) and 6 =
drops
honey. (used mesquite honey had on hand)
Pull double shot longish Normale (but not quite Lungo, ~2.5oz) into demi
with cardamom seeds and honey. Gently swirl about 30 seconds to mix and
infuse. (Don't worry, cremas not going away.) Quite delish! I call it a
Scheherazade Shot after one of my favorite pieces Rimsky-Korsakov's A
Thousand and One Arabian Nights inspired Scheherazade. (I used my Summer =
Jam
Espresso blend for the shot.)
