Flavor Notes: Maple syrup and espresso go together like—you know the rest. The piney bite of maple with a garnish of cinnamon elevates this latte to the next level. Just add a warm scone or a croissant.
Who: Feel Good Coffee Lounge | @fgcoffeelounge
Where: 13750 NW 107th Ave Suite 112, Hialeah Gardens, FL

For the guest who: is feeling wintery
Flavor Thoughts: Like a post-holiday meal dessert in coffee form. This one is decadent, subtle, and sweet. Pair it with a cookie or some sourdough bread.
