Coffee Shop Hop Stop 2

Yukon Coffee: Dirty Chai

My second stop for the day was at Yukon Coffee next door in Longview, TX. I don’t think this is a chain but to be honest, I’m not 100% sure. I couldn’t find multiple locations with a simple google search, but their branding and building seem a bit polished for a single location, so who knows.

Yukon Coffee opened fairly recently, and I admit, this was only my second visit. I had planned on getting a cappuccino, but when I arrived I noticed the Dirty Chai on the menu and decided to go for it.

I have gone back and forth on coffee and tea. For several years, I didn’t drink much coffee at all, but always had tea handy. Recently my pendulum has swung back the other way. A good dirty chai hits both targets.

For the uninitiated, a dirty chai is simply a chai with a shot of espresso added. The spicy, milky tea goes well with a good shot and I have been known to try these whenever I see them on the menu.

I should have asked if the chai was a mix. I’m pretty sure it was. It was overpoweringly sweet and, to be honest, I won’t be ordering it from Yukon Coffee again.

Yukon Coffee has no internal seating, but has an interesting combination of chairs, tables and a grouping of Adirondack chairs next to their building. Since this is Texas, I’m sure it could be used most of the year. The morning of my visit was a bit cooler than the locals enjoy, but I had fun sitting in the cool weather enjoying (or at least drinking) my chai.

If you get the chance to check out Yukon Coffee, I can say the latte I had several months back was much superior to the chai.
