House Made French Lavender Latte

French lavender has arrived and we are making some amazing french lavender lattes at Upright Brooklyn. Some have described it as tasting like the holidays. If your really feeling adventurous try a lavender mocha latte. Just like our Madagascar vanilla latte, we make our flavors in-house from real ingredients like vanilla and lavender flowers.

 

French Press Coffee in a Bag from Growers Cup

Disposable Bag French Press Growers Cup

We just placed an order for the french press style coffee in a bag from Growers Cup. This little package is like a disposable french press in a bag. I cant wait to give it a shot. I usually go on road trips and even a few camping trips with my Bodum French press. The Growers Cup system would save me a bit of trouble on my next trip.

How cute is this! FabCafe in Shibuya, Japan makes a marshmallow latte that looks like a little ghost peaking out of the mug. The marshmallows are hand made and will melt away into the latte. I’m booking a ticket now.
