Chai-Making Workshop with Leon Shombana at Refuge Coffee Co.
Not long after we launched Refuge Coffee and Leon joined our team as our first barista trainee, we quickly discovered that Leon is a born storyteller. Sure, he enjoys making chai and brewing coffee, but he shines as our Ambassador of Welcome, and he loves to set people at ease while teaching them something in the process.
Here’s what to expect when you sign up for a chai workshop with Leon:
- A little history—the history of chai, the history of Refuge Coffee, and some of Leon’s personal journey.
- A little instruction—in the form of a demonstration (both in our shop and on our truck) and, of course, the final taste test. You’ll want to recreate our chai at home, if only so you can get a whiff of its heavenly smell again!
- A little Q & A—this is our favorite part. We’re convinced you’ll have questions, and Leon is—as he always says—“born ready” to answer them.
- A little takeaway—some limited-edition Refuge Chai glass mug, custom Chai recipe card and a large Chai latte, for you to take home
