Their menu is simple. The Spicy Mocha stood out to me immediately. I ordered it with coconut milk, as I am a vegan.
The rest is history.
Since that day, I have been attempting to order this same drink “off menu” at other coffee shops. But no other place could even come close to getting it right.
Therefore, today I drove 40 minutes away from my home in Spring Hill, to Franklin. I brought my young daughter along for the ride too.
I had been romanticizing the idea of this cup of coffee for well over a month now. I must say, it was worth the journey. Really though, it was more of a pilgrimage.
What is so special about the Spicy Mocha at High Brow Coffee + Tea?
I feel that ultimately, it speaks to my identity as a man.
Consisting of a dark mix of mocha, cinnamon, and cayenne, there is certainly a challenging aspect of it. This is not a drink for the faint of heart.
No, this is coffee that speaks to my Mayan, Aztec, and Middle Eastern roots.
The Spicy Mocha makes me feel alive, in such a metaphoric way.
It contains the perfect amount of caffeine. The flavor of the coffee itself is perfectly balanced.
This coffee serves as a therapeutic vehicle for me. It takes me to another place, with Americana as the backdrop.
In fact, I love the visuals of High Brow Coffee + Tea so much, that I actually incorporated them into my blog. Notice the header. All these pictures were taken on location.
So what have you learned today? If you happen to be in Franklin, Tennessee, you basically now have an obligation to visit High Brow Coffee + Tea.
And if you feel daring and brave, ask for the Spicy Mocha and tell them some daddy blogger guy sent you.
