NOLA Egg Custard at Reve Coffee Lab
To Dream Coffee Lab in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, every latest signature drink is created in-house by talented and creative baristas. The company holds a signature drink contest for each season of the year with cash prizes for the top four. Fostering this kind of creativity translates into delicious drinks — take barista Kylie Bihm’s NOLA Egg Custard. The drink takes over the classic egg cream (seltzer water, milk, chocolate) and takes it up a notch.
We spoke with creative director Carter Liles to find out more.
