awesome of the week: “the perfect holiday latte”

Holidays are a time for indulgence, AM I RIGHT?!?

I’m totally right, and living this mantra – recently ordering “The Perfect Holiday Latte”, advertised on a counter display board at vegan friendly Artemis Cafe & Catering on SE Division, my favorite street.  It was made with Soy Nog – by default!, Stumptown espresso and organic spiced syrup.  It wasn’t ornately swirled, but I knew I wasn’t at an esteemed coffeeshop, and thick nog was in effect. I detected actual spices – cinnamon, nutmeg, anise, etc. Hells yes.  Seasons Freaking Greetings and Caffeinating to me.

  1. Thanks for visiting us! Important distinction regarding the “perfect holiday latte”, we PURPOSELY chose the Silk Nog for that drink! Remember what assuming does for you! Glad the subtle spices were detected, I made the spiced syrup with organic oranges and yes, you got it right, cinnamon, clove and star anise. We focus on high quality local, organic cuisine and offer pretty good coffee I think. Maybe not an esteemed coffee shop by your standards, but I am okay with that…Next time, check out the food!
