What is an emoliente?

We have amazing organic and fair trade coffee from some of the countries our charity has worked in. We have delicious whole leaf teas, fresh roasted coffee beans, and pour-overs, 100% hand-crafted lattes, delicious and unique juices and smoothies... 

but what is an emoliente?

Emolientes are amazing homemade "teas" which are used as holistic medicine in South America. They are a delicious staple of street food in Perú, and all over South America. (see picture to the right)

This homemade barley based tea offers AMAZING health benefits supported by 6 medicinal herbs from Peru.  

We are the only local cafe to offer esencia de cafe. Think of a smoother, more caffeinated version of an espresso shot. You will never want to drink coffee any other way!

Add in whole-leaf Japanese-style teas, real Argentinian mates, a variety of coffee drinks, homemade emoliente, and you are guaranteed to fall in love with Hope Cafe.

Come for the drinks, stay for the ambiance!
