Happy Cinco De Mayo!

May 05, 2020

Cinco de Mayo is one of those incredibly fun holidays that really does not have a lot to do with most of us in the United States. In fact, I am willing to bet the majority of you don't even know why you are celebrating! 

But, what the heck, everyone loves a good party and Cinco de Mayo is as good of one as any! In case you are wondering, May 5th commemorates a battle fought won by the Mexican army against French forces in 1862...now you know, party on!

There is no better way to start your Cinco de Mayo celebration than with a delicious Mexican coffee. This wonderful day also happens to be our wedding anniversary as well so we like to put a special twist into our celebration!! You will need:

  • 4 scoops of either Medium Roast Kona Loft Coffee  or Kona Barrel Bourbon Coffee
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • a dash of cloves
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon
  • 1 small square of dark chocolate
  • 1 small square of white chocolate
  • whipped cream

Directions:

  • Start by adding the brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla extract and dark chocolate to a large mug. 
  • Next, brew your Kona Loft Coffee then pour directly into the same mug using the
  • Once the brew is complete, stir your coffee until the chocolate is melted. 
  • Top with whipped cream or perhaps chocolate shavings, cinnamon or caramel. 

Sip, celebrate and enjoy!
