Casa Cacao Brings Espresso, Cacao, and Kava to Hudson Road

One in every of Columbus’ extra distinctive espresso outlets opened just lately in a renovated constructing on Hudson Road: Casa Cacao. Casa Cacao options not solely espresso, however drinks crafted with cacao and kava, an herb that usually acts like a depressant like alcohol (learn extra about kava on Wikipedia).

Casa Cacao makes its dwelling in a constructing on Hudson Road between Indianola and Summit. We lived a block away from this construction for a decade, and it’s thrilling to see it lastly put to make use of. Previously it served as a boxing enviornment, a church, and a theatre, amongst different issues.

The area has been fantastically redone, with uncovered brick partitions, a number of pure mild, eclectic seating.

Tabletops are inlaid with glass and crammed with shows of stones, arrowheads, and different artifacts.

Even the lengthy bar doubles as glass show circumstances.

The menu options the three fundamental drinks: espresso, cacao, and kava. Espresso drinkers will discover traditional espresso drinks like cappuccinos, lattes, mochas, plus distinctive choices like a mushroom latte and specialties just like the Daisy’s Limelight – a double shot of espresso with a twist of lime. Be aware that every one drinks are made with oat milk.

A trio of cacao drinks make nice use of it, mixing natural cacao with spices. Some drinks are served heat whereas some are chilled.

Similar with the kava drinks – it’s blended with completely different spices, oat milk, syrups.

You’ll additionally discover tea, kombucha, chilly brew, lemonade. I like the Fluffy – a child’s drink of frothed oat milk with a sprinkle of chocolate.

I ordered the flat white, just like a cappuccino however with much less milk. This was very properly executed.

And I tasted Bear’s Elixir, a cacao drink with orange oil, clove, cinnamon, and coconut sugar. It’s served heat, and invokes that wealthy mixture of chocolate and citrus. Be aware that that is actual cacao, not chocolate, so it comes with a larger depth of taste, somewhat extra bitterness. However this was pleasant, particularly on a cold day.

There are a selection of little corners and tables good for learning or studying, and there’s wifi.

And though it doesn’t look as dramatic now, the big again patio presents much more area for tables and benches.

I admire that two sides of the constructing are lined in murals, too, so it’s a beautiful pop of shade within the neighborhood.

I feel Casa Cacao is a superb addition to the town’s espresso/beverage scene! I admire the distinctive mixture of drinks and the thoughtfully renovated area. I can’t wait to go again and take a look at extra.
