1. Campfire Cowboy Bonbon + Middle Ground Iced Coffee
Our first pairing features a delightful Campfire Cowboy Bonbon, crafted of cookie butter s'more with a hint of bourbon smoked sea salt. When you sip our Middle Ground iced coffee alongside this bonbon, it's like having a latte experience in candy form! The fluffy marshmallow sweetness harmonizes with the coffee's maple notes, and of course the mutual chocolate flavors. The pinch of salt balances the sweetness, and the coffee's blackberry tartness adds a brightness to the experience.
2. Coconut Dream Crème Bonbon + Elm Hill Spice Seasonal Iced Coffee
Next up is the scrumptious Coconut Dream Crème Bonbon, a coconut ganache with a dreamy macaroon layer. A surprisingly delicious pair with our seasonal iced coffee, Elm Hill Spice, and you've got yourself a mini fall vacation. Our bold coffee, sourced from Mexico and infused with cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and whole vanilla beans, offers a deliciously spicy chai coffee.
