Our search for an October pumpkin latte took us to Local Krave and a new experience in lattes…a Kraveman! What’s a Kraveman, right? It’s a local entrepreneur’s creation of coffee, grass fed butter, organic coconut oil, honey, and cream. Pumpkin and spices were added to create our October treat and were we ever pleased! It was almost like a meal in a cup (and I’m sure it was healthy for us).
We took our drinks to the outside patio beside a Banksy banner. There are several more Banksy banners in the parking lot, which led me to wonder: How can they put expensive Banksy art work outside? I’m glad I asked because I learned Banksy art is public domain! See some examples of his work at http://www.publicdomainpictures.net/hledej.php?hleda=banksy. So now I’ve learned 2 things today: Kraveman drinks are delicious & Banksy art work is within my budget!
There’s more than a Kraveman drink here, though. They believe in promoting local roasters so every day a selection of 4 local roasters are offered, plus their own roast called Dangerous. The day we came there were offerings from Dark Horse, Virtuoso, Cafe Moto, and Bird Rock. Pick one and they’ll do a pour over for you. They’ll also sell the beans from any of the roasters represented that day. If you’re hungry they offer Belgian waffles, breakfast sandwiches, and acai bowls. But come by noon as they close at noon every day. Opening times are 6:00am Mon.-Fri. and 8:00am Sat. and Sun.
From noon on they are busy making ice cream and sorbets for Na Pali Coast Frozen Organics, although not sold here. I found mine at Grant’s Market in South Park, but it’s also available at Jimbo’s and other local markets (see where at https://www.napalifrozenorganics.com/).
