    Oh, now i know more about Raf. Hi from Moscow =)

  • FullAttach

    Specific recipe to make at home?

  • Roman Kutanov

    In Double B Moscow orange RAF was especially good

  • ok

    This sounds very interesting and I’d like to make this at home with the same recipe Bogdan/Douuble B use. I have few questions

    Do you have a recipe anywhere?

    Does the drink have orange peel, lime peel and lavender flower in it?
    Is this citrus mix dried and then powdered?

    Also what is the syrup he drizzles on to make a design, is it honey?


    • LexKazakov

      To decorate the drink, barista uses several crops of espresso (or espresso crema).

      > Does the drink have orange peel, lime peel and lavender flower in it?
      Yes, it does, if we speak about Double B. Most of cafes simplify the recipe. They just use flavored syrups to make a particular taste.

  • Alexander Perevalov

    It was created much earlier, in early 2000’s at Coffee Bean (Moscow) and it was named after regular customer Rafael.

      Hey Alexander, thanks for more information. We know it comes from Coffee Bean and it is named after the regular customer but it is true we were told it happened little later.

    • Alexander Perevalov

      I had my first Raf in 2004 at Coffeemania.
