Best of Nashville Prediction No. 1

Posted By on Mon, Jun 9, 2008 at 2:28 PM

Someone remind me this fall—when Best of Nashville rolls around—about the tom ka kai coffee at Crema. I finally tried one of Rachel Lehman's sultry new iced coffee drinks this morning, and it is my instant favorite coffee drink.

Of course, it's far from instant. The coffee guru starts out with a shot of espresso, to which she adds cool, creamy coconut milk; homemade simple syrup infused with kaffir lime leaves; and a pinch of cardamom. The result is a thick, frothy blend of nutty flavors and citrus zing—arguably the best Thai soup-flavored Italian-style coffee in Nashville. Of course, we'll have to wait till BON season to be sure.
