Washougal Coffee Company - A Rainy Day and A London Fog

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

It's another rainy week, but I had the pleasure of meeting a client for coffee yesterday morning in downtown Washougal. The Washougal Coffee Company is generally quiet enough to allow for good conversation and the London Fogs are delicious.  In my opinion, this beverage is made for cold damp days in the Pacific Northwest. 

 


A London Fog is also known as Vanilla Tea Misto or an Earl Grey Tea Latte. In Scotland, it's called a Vancouver Fog, since it was originally created in Vancouver, British Columbia.  Basically, it's steeped Earl Grey tea with steamed milk, a shot of vanilla, and a sweetener of choice. I also sprinkle the top layer of foam with nutmeg and cinnamon.


If you  haven't had the pleasure of enjoying this creamy beverage, I encourage you to give it a try. Some people use a hint lavender in the recipe too, although, most often, I prefer to drink the classic. Just thinking about it makes me want to go back to the Washougal Coffee Company and order another.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - I'm a tea lover and would love to share a cup of tea with you some day. I haven't heard of this product before but I'll be on the look out.

I love how you keep in touch with clients and find quiet places for good conversations and a nice cup of tea. You're a great people person who keeps things personable and friendly.

Hi Debb,
I'm a coffee drinker but this sounds like a beverage worth trying! Is this a drink that any coffee shop should know how to make?  

BTW: We had a 3 hour diversion (and delay) to Birmingham, England due to London fog.  That made a long day longer!!!  And, is another story in itself.  Perhaps I should republish that blog post sometime just for fun.   Have a great Friday, Debb!

Patricia Feager I would love to share a cup of tea with you any day. It would be wonderful to meet in person, 

Hi Carol Williams I'm pretty sure most coffee shops would be familiar with it - as I recall, Starbucks serves it, but I haven't tried theirs yet.

I have never heard of this before, but I did not start drinking coffee and tea until a couple years ago so I am behind the times.

Larry enjoys drinking tea, but usually the plain old fashion type.  I will mention this one to him.

Debb I'm a coffee gal but after your post I just could be persuaded to try a lovely cup of London Fog! Sounds so perfect for a cold, dreary day (which we don't have many of them here in Phoenix)...

Hi Debb

I prefer coffee but would certainly be willing to give thie a try, especially on a cold, damp day, preferably in front of a fireplace! Windy here for the last 2 days but no dampness, sadly!

I don't generally drink hot teas but when I was in Europe I really enjoyed them. Maybe I should go that route instead of coffee.

I have never heard of that, always find Earl Gray to be so distinctive in flavour that I don't add milk just maybe a little lemon.

Thanks all for the visit and comments. I'm not suggesting I'm a tea versus coffee drinker. I'd already had my coffee quota by the time we met. This was a different treat to enjoy - and while they are wonderful - could NEVER replace my coffee. Hahaha.
