Next Door Drink of the Month:
Chocolat Moderne Kama Sutra
Thick & velvety drinking chocolate inspired by the warming spices of India. Featuring dark Valrhona chocolate, cardamom and clove blended perfectly with coconut oil.”
Tea of the Month:
Order this tea with a chocolate croissant, please, for your own sake. Steeped from organic peppermint from Washington State, it is a perfect winter drink. Many revere it for its myriad health benefits; rightfully so, but its flavor and aroma are pure vibrance. It makes these cold, dark mornings more lively and the afternoons less monotonous. It’s soothing, too, and caffeine-free for after dinner, as you’re bundled up, watching the snow fall on Detroit Street. Enjoy. -Mike (Tea Specialist)
Zingerman’s Coffee Co. Roaster’s Pick:
Brazil Full Bloom – Daterra Estate
Full Bloom is a 100% “natural” or dry processed coffee, meaning that the fruit flesh of the coffee cherry was left attached to the bean as it dried. We loved this lot for its wonderful balance of chocolate and fruit notes and for the panorama of flavors it offers sip after sip.
