Welcome back to the crossroads. blog, long time no see! With a busy summer head at the coffee shop we thought we'd get to writing some updates and exciting things we have coming up as we head towards warmer weather!
Let's talk everyone's favorite...drinks of the month. For June we went back and forth on what we wanted to focus on, but sometimes the easiest way to narrow down inspiration is with a good, old-fashion, THEME. June, we're bringing everyone back to the glory days of SUMMER CAMP!
We're talking cabins, lakes, and camp counselors summer camp, but not the Friday the 13th version (we'll save that for October)
This June you'll be introduced to:
The Campfire Stories Latte: a smoked juniper and peppercorn latte with marshmallow cold foam and wafer paper leaf topping.
Imagine those summer nights sitting around the campfire, the smell of fresh pine in the area and smoke sticking to your clothes. The only thing lighting the way is a roaring fire and the bright stars that scatter the clear sky.
The Bunk Buddy Latte: our inspiration for this was the ever so tasty, and addicting trail mix. Dried cherry puree and cinnamon meet house-made almond syrup in a fruity, nutty latte topped with our famous whipped cream and house-made granola crumb (yes they are gluten-free)
Swim Lessons: this one is for our non-coffee drinkers or those who just want a refreshing mid-day, afternoon, morning, any time pick me up.
Coconut water and coconut cream pair with a butterfly pea syrup for a breath of fresh air in a cup, mixed with luster dust for a sparkle and topped with a peach ring life preserver.

You are also more than welcome to bring extra seating for outside if you want to hang out on a blanket or a folding chair. Our space is yours to use (with love and respect of course).
