Death Cream: Inspired by Murder on the Orient Express

By Jessica | Friday, March 24th, 2017 at 3:42 pm

Have you seen McCarter Theatre’s production of Murder on the Orient Express?

Every time I have asked a customer at Small World Coffee if they have seen the play, the theatre patrons have responded resoundingly with rave reviews.

McCarter Theatre asked local food and beverage establishments to create thematic menu items related to Murder on the Orient Express.  In honor of this murderously suspenseful play, we are serving Death Cream, rumored to have been popular at cafes in the 1980’s.  We adapted the recipe for the 2017 production of Murder on the Orient Express.

Death Cream is a mixture of espresso, house-made vanilla syrup and half and half served on the rocks with a sidecar of whipped cream.  It’s far too rich to be good for you!

Death Cream will be available for a limited time until April 2nd!

Enjoy!  Support our Tony-Award winning regional theatre – McCarter Theatre Center.

Better Know a Worldling, Part 1

By Jessica | Friday, August 22nd, 2014 at 7:59 am

We are a blur of red aprons – you see us, day in and out, hustling behind the counter, making change, pulling shots, washing dishes like our livelihood depends on it – because it does, really. But what do you really know about us, this select group of wildly attractive humans who can make delicious beverages at a clip that defies belief? (And who are also, obviously, very humble.)

In all honesty, we do think of our crew as one large and mostly functional family. And we would like for you, our loyal customers, to get to know us. To that end, we are introducing a new series of Small World employee interviews. It’ll be no-holds-barred and I’ll be asking the tough questions, like “what’s your favorite coffee drink?” and “which Hogwarts house would you be sorted into?” And in just a few short answers, you’ll get to the heart of who we are, as baristas, as New Jerseyans, as human beings.

And so, without further ado, I present the first part of Small World Coffee’s “Better Know a Worldling.”

Oaxaca Love Tour – Part 2

By Jessica | Thursday, March 13th, 2014 at 1:58 pm

Oaxaca city is located in the central valley of the state of Oaxaca in the foothills of the Sierra Madre. This beautiful city is known for it’s colonial era structures as well as native Zapotec and Mixtec archeological sites. The diversity of the Oaxacan cuisine has given it a reputation of being the culinary capital of Mexico and the nickname Land of the Seven Moles. We had a lot of fun wandering the streets and markets of Oaxaca, sampling the food and taking in the local artisan crafts.
