Here in England, we're well-acquainted with the unpredictability of our weather. 🌦🌞🌧
As the saying goes, especially during the month of May, "It May rain, it May be sunny...." It's this uncertainty that inspires us to create coffee concoctions that are perfect for any weather, any mood, and any moment.
Today, we're thrilled to share a comforting recipe that's as versatile as an English spring morning: our 'Grumpy's Spiced Mocha.' This warm, indulgent brew combines the rich flavours of our ethically sourced coffee and artisan hot chocolate with a hint of comforting spice. It's the perfect companion for a sunny afternoon, a rainy morning, or any time you need a cosy pick-me-up.
