The Root of the Bohío Style:
The coconut. The definition of a Bohío is a hut with a thatched roof (aka palm leaves). Coconut’s are part of the palm family; most Bohío’s that were built in Costa Rica years ago were built using Coconut Palm leaves due to abundance found here. Therefore, our name, Bohío Cafe, is part coconut. There’s a lot more that goes into our name, but coconut is one of them.
& from this discovery derived the Bohío Style.
Coconut Milk + Cold Brew + Cane Sugar = Creamy Deliciousness
Want to make this at home? Easy-ish.
You will need:
Coconut Milk. We use an all-natural, homemade, coconut milk; for most accurate results, we suggest this option. To learn how to make coconut milk, please refer to our blog post on how to do so. If you don’t have time for this, you can purchase a non-sweetened coconut milk from your local market.
Cane Sugar Simple Syrup. This is super simple to make. You will need to purchase a block of cane sugar. Please refer to our blog post on Cane Sugar to learn how to make the simple syrup.
Cold Brew Concentrate. For our Cold Brew Concentrate we use Ritual Medium Roast Beans. Please refer to our blog post on Cold Brew Concentrate.
Preparing the Ingredients for a Bohío Style:
Take your homemade coconut milk, or your store bought coconut milk, and freeze into ice cubes.
Have the simple syrup made.
Cold Brew Concentrate
Have your Cold Brew Concentrate made.
I realize that this sounds like a lot. But the good news is that you are preparing bulk ingredients that will yield enough to make atleast 9 Bohío Styles.
Now that your ingredients are ready…
- 5 coconut ice cubes
- 1 oz of cane sugar simple syrup
- 6 oz of Cold Brew Concentrate
Blend until completely uniform and all coconut milk has dissolved it’s chunkiness.
Pour over a couple of normal ice cubes.
