This Caramel Chai White Russian is a brunch peacemaker.
I live in a house divided by coffee and tea. My husband is a die hard coffee enthusiast, always seeking the best, most time-consuming way to grind and brew beans. The other day I found him in the kitchen borrowing my baking scale, painstakingly measuring out his morning cup of joe by weight while using some sort of fancy filter-y plunger contraption in order to extract maximum coffee-ness.
