Fall Series - Dirty Chai Latte

Fall is Here

Fall Series Part 1 - The Honey Bee Latte

Leaves are falling and changing colors. Time to bundle up and grab a nice, warm drink.

Up next, the dirty chai latte. 

Normally a chai latte wouldn't contain coffee. Here at C&P, we're changing things up by adding a shot or two of espresso.
