Flor de Caña
From McLaughlin Coffee:
This blend of high-grown coffees from Central and South America is roasted to a light color, which accentuates the mild flavor. This coffee has a nice balance of acidity and richness.
Wow a medium roast coffee at Nabolom Bakery. Get it while it’s hot!
As always, the coffee drinks here are fair-trade and organic.
