In honor of this summer’s most popular iced coffee beverage, Michael’s Cafe American proudly presents Sea Cloud, the movie!
(okay it’s not really a movie, it’s only 42 seconds long, but if you drink as much coffee as I do, 42 seconds is a long time)
Our Sea Cloud Iced Latte is made with fresh whole milk from local dairy farms. First, the milk is poured into a glass with ice. Then fresh roasted coffee from our own Black Ship Coffee is made into a generous serving of espresso, then carefully poured on top, so that it floats like a cloud on top of the ice cold milk.
Videographer Daisuke Hakamada (Tono Brewing Company) captured the sea clouds of the Tono basin, using an iPhone, and time-lapse photography, in the hills high above Tono, at sunrise.
Check in for more updates this August, things are changing from week to week, as we celebrate Obon (お盆) and have extended hours, and days. We’re open 9 consecutive days in the middle of August! And are opening a little earlier (not shown here) so if you come in at 10:30, we can serve fresh coffee, while we’re setting up.
