Welcome to our Kickstarter fundraiser for Café Esencia !
A little something to let you know what we’re about:
We are an eclectic churro café inspired by "La Convivencia" period in Spain. "La Convivencia" took place when three great cultures coexisted in Southern Spain, leading to an awesome flourishing of flavors, aromas, and essences.
We’re providing a restorative, convivial space for our local community; a place to unwind and enjoy.
We serve traditional Andalusian churros & chocolate served with choices of spiced sugars and drinks. We also will be serving breakfasts and lunch foods. Full of mediterranean flavors and made with locally sourced ingredients.
Churros come in various shapes and sizes, and each are delicious in their own right. Our favorite, however, are porras. Porras are a type of churro that are golden, crisp, and light. They're fried in oil, spun into a wheel, and served with spiced sugar and chocolate.
We hope you will join us make our dreams a reality in bringing these special churros from Andalucía all the way to Ridgewood, NYC.
We're looking forward to have you!
For those of you who want to learn more about our love of churros...
In Andalucía, locals will tell you that
"churros should be light, something you can enjoy every day, you shouldn't feel bad about eating churros"
We also think you should be able to eat churros every day, this is why we make our churros the old school way; with a probiotic culture, local flour, and fried in fresh olive oil. This dough has no egg, no sugar, no dairy, and is always vegan.
Light, crisp, and chewy; it's the perfect balance of texture.
We serve our churros with spiced sugars. Dip them in hot chocolate or your coffee.
Where is your money going to?
We're hoping to raise money to help with the costs of a new bar, chairs, tables, and menu boards. Our goal is to raise $4,000!
We are well into construction and plan to open March 2017
Risks and challenges
As with any food project there are many risks
you may get hooked on churros and chocolate and may never want to leave.
The restaurant industry is very complex and unique, permits and licenses need to clear, but we are already well on our way to opening.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
