Café Brosseau bringing Shakerato, not "Sharknado," to Tacoma

In case you missed SyFy's so-bad-it's-awesome made-for-TV movie Sharknado, Café Brosseau is the first to bring a screening of the movie to Tacoma. As you may have guessed, the movie is about a freak disaster in which man-eating sharks swim through the streets and fall from the air in Los Angeles.

Ah, crap. We apologize. We read the press release wrong.

Cafe Brosseau, a Tacoma Coffee House featuring Tacoma's own Madrona Coffee Co., is bringing SHAKERATO, not Sharknado, to Tacoma.

According to Café Brosseau, "The Shakerato, is a foamy, frosty, cold mix of premium roasted Madrona Coffee Co espresso beans, extracted by a caring Barista, from an Italian race car of an espresso machine, La Marzocco. The resulting espresso shots are hand-shaken, cocktail-style, with a simple sweetness, and ice."

Oh, man. That's much better than Tara Reid, John Heard, a chainsaw wielding Ian Ziering battling an inexplicable series of tornadoes loaded with sharks.

Apparently Cafe Brosseau is happy to add a touch of creaminess to its Shakerato, such as almond milk, hemp milk or dairy cream.

CAFÉ BROSSEAU, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, 2716 N. 21st St., Tacoma, 253.327.1306
