Now serving Kombucha, by Two Tree’s Vitali~Tea

Posted on Nov 1, 2012 | Comments Off

Sandbox Coffeehouse now is serving fresh brewed, hand poured, Kombucha. Our Kombucha is made in small batches and has a unique taste that will keep you coming back for more.
Kombucha is a type of tea drink that is becoming more popular every day as well of the flavors from Matcha Green Tea. Probably because of it’s great taste and health promoting properties. Kombucha uses the same type of brewing process as vinegar.Image result for tea
What makes Kombucha different from vinegar is the nutrient solution in which it is brewed. Vinegar uses apple cider where Kombucha uses sweet tea.
The magic of the fermentation process between the sweet tea and the SCOBY is that, while the mother feeds off the sweet tea, vitamins and enzymes are produced that weren’t there before. Fermentation helps the ploy-phenols, tannins, and antioxidants found in the tea to become easier for the body to absorb and use, which is what, makes it such a healthy drink!

Check out the work of Jerry Calote, our art booker!

Jerry Calote was born and raised in a small agricultural town in Central California. At the age of 18 he was accepted into the University of California at Los Angeles in a scholarship program. At UCLA he became interested in studying motion picture and specifically, animated film. He was mentored there by Dan McLauglin Jr. in the animation workshop and practiced his drawing and painting skills within the medium of motion picture. After graduating from film school in 1976, Mr. Calote employed himself as a technician in various motion picture and commercial productions in the Los Angeles area.

In 1985 Jerry Calote was invited to produce an art project in Switzerland. In his new environment he found inspiration to begin creating paintings on canvas and produced his first serious body of fine art work. He obtained temporary residency in Switzerland, and built an art atelier in the Berner Oberland called Atelier Calote. For 12 straight years he spent most of his time in Europe producing a variety of artworks ranging from surrealistic paintings to modern art, and large murals on indoor and outdoor walls throughout Kanton Bern.

In 1998 Jerry Calote returned to Southern California to engage his creative energies again in his homeland. His art studio is now based in Agoura Hills, California.

He manages to retain his professional connection to Switzerland and returns there yearly to paint in the summer season.
Jerry Calote is a world traveler, and enjoys painting the impressions of his destinations as the artistic documentation of his experience.
