Fall Coffee
It seems Fall is in the mist and tho I may be a couple weeks into September its feeling like Autum is finally arriving! Here are 4 unique coffees that you might want to try during this season! Pst! This one is actually really good spin off from the original PL, I had one over at Starbucks and it's amazing a little sweeter and would actually recommend trying it with Mocha as well (that'll be my next flavor to try) This had been a drink choice last year, instead of using sugar put a spoonful of Maple syrup into creamer and add into your coffee, if you like sweet this is a great choice. If you have any fall flavors you would like to recommend share away! Coffee Lovers: @SweetDuella and @Just2BLoved Fam tag!
