Introducing... the Gibraltar

Gibraltar Espresso Drink sitting on a wooden board next to a glass of carbonated water

The Gibraltar, a new "traditional" drink, is available at all of our cafes. But what is it? We're here to shed some light! 

Here are some fun facts:

It's also known as: a cortado (if you’re on the east coast), a Tallat in Catalan, an Ebaki in Basque, a Pingo or Garoto in Portugal, and a noisette in France.

What the name means: it’s the registered name for the type of glassware tumblers that many people (including us [after work]) use as rocks glasses.

What it is: it’s basically a large macchiato. If you’d like to get technical though, it’s two shots of espresso with two ounces of lightly textured, latte-style milk that is steamed slightly cooler (130° F) than a traditional cappuccino (usually ~140° F).

Is this a new drink?: It has been around since 2005-ish and originated in San Francisco. It has been slowing creeping into specialty coffee shops around the rest of the country ever since.

What it tastes like: The best word to describe this drink is balance. It is a perfect balance of milk and espresso, but with two shots to help you get through your day.

Where you can get it: any of our Kaldi's locations in St. Louis, Columbia, and Kansas City.
