It’s Beginning to Taste a Lot Like Christmas!

The Peppermint Mocha Latte – oh yes! We are going there today. This is the day for the coffee drink that screams “CHRISTMAS IS HERE!” Our seasonal favorite: Peppermint Mocha Latte. Mmmm.

The cool, sweet flavor of candy canes mixed with rich chocolate, soothing warm milk, and silky coffee that simply glides over the tongue. It practically begs you to put on your warm sweater and curl up on the couch with your favorite holiday movie.

Did you know it’s easy to make at home? With ingredients you probably have on hand? It’s true. And for the price of one at your local big-time coffee store, you can make more than one at home and avoid the lines! Win-win.
