36. 10:35 Yalian Wu, Chu Family Cafe, China
Sprudge doens’t have a #Weibo account but if someone does, let Chu Family Cafe know we’re blowing up the spot for Yalian Wu!
So efficient–everything from Yalian Wu happens with both hands. super dialed in, conserving space and time, and likely conversing with space and time as well.
“I really love espresso with a silky mouthfeel and complex flavors”–Yalian Wu.
Sig drink: “espresso mousse with the essence of honey”–Yalian Wu is making mousse live on stage! Mousse, people.
Ok but how good does espresso and honey mousse sound? Also where does one buy a 30 second mousse maker? #mousse.
For this sig drink, judges stir the mousse into the espresso shot, sip, taste, then sip again.
