There are so many great Vermont beverages available at our Co-op, but during these winter months, you're probably craving something warm and cozy! We know we are! How about trying a "Dirty" Maple Chai Latte?

Brew up some spicy local chai, add a shot of your favorite espresso to make it “dirty”, add a touch of maple syrup to sweeten, and top with steamed milk. Bonus points for keeping it local!

Enjoy the bold flavors from right here in our great state!


2 teaspoons
tea, chai (loose or bag)
1 cup
1/2 cup
milk, whole (local)
espresso (from local roaster)
maple syrup (to taste)


Boil water. Pour boiling water over chai and allow to steep 5-10 minutes, then remove tea bag or strain out loose tea. Add espresso shot. Steam milk with your espresso machine’s steam function.

Alternately, heat milk until simmering in a small pot and froth with a handheld frother or whisk.

Add to tea and espresso, then top with steamed milk and foam.

Sweeten with maple syrup to taste.
