If you try really hard, you can feel fall whispering on the air in the morning these days. Autumn displays are adorning door fronts and football is in full-swing. The time is right for a warm, spiced cup of seasonal cheer.
Two of the most familiar faces of Prevail Coffee Roasters, Christina and Kellie let us in on their passion for making your favorite fall drinks. While they may have originated from two opposite ends of the the east coast, they bring together the perfect balance of flavors in their creations. Get to know them and feast your eyes on the gallery of featured drinks currently available in the shop.
Creating cafe beverages is a collaborative process. Sometimes this may just be tweaking a simple recipe you already have in mind, such as how much syrup should go in a pumpkin spice latte. Or, it can be a several week long process of brainstorming, gathering new ingredients and experimenting with flavor profiles. In creating our fall favorites, we combined some of the traditional flavors of fall and tried to put a unique, artistic spin on them.
Originally from Long Island, New York, Christina moved to Montgomery in 2016. About a year ago she began working in coffee, and currently studies at Troy University. Her most memorable coffee experience was learning to dial in the espresso – and she’s quite the pro today! Her favorite fall special is the cinnamon hazelnut cappuccino.
Kellie is from South Florida and moved to Montgomery in 2015. She’s spent her first year as a barista perfecting her favorite part of the coffee industry: latte art. Her favorite fall seasonal is the cinnamon hazelnut cappuccino.
