Last month I had a chance to try some of the live culture, fresh brewed water kefirs at The Kefiry in Sebastopol. It's a couple doors down from Hole in the Wall.
The first taste I was offered was . . . water. No just any ol' water, this water had been purified in the Biocera system. It felt very soft, almost soapy, and did indeed seem like it cleaned and neutralized my palate. Then I romped through Lemon Gingerale, Tulsi Rose Kola, OMG Super Moca, Hibiscus Maya, and Jasmine Green Tea. Naturally carbonated and continuing to ferment, these "enlivened" beverages were barely sweetened and quite complex with masterful blending of floral, fruity and herbal tones. I liked them all though the Kola was too heavy on the rose for more than a sip. The Hibiscus Maya went home with me.
Surely some of Hole in the Wall's fans have stopped here. What are your favorites?
