Cherry Valentine Mocha

What happens when you combine the sweetness of chocolate with the richness and depth of coffee? What if you next add in the sugary sweetness, almond tinged flavor of the maraschino cherry?

The Queens take on a Pharisäeer Kaffee (German-rum coffee)

It has been suggested that the Pharisäeer Kaffee originated in the 19th century at a baptismal celebration. The father, a local German farmer, decided to add rum to the guest's coffee as a surprise. This concoction was then topped with whipped cream to mask the odor of the alcohol from the unsuspecting pastor. The result was this lovely, soon to become a traditional, German rum coffee. Incidentally, do not stir this drink before imbibing. Traditionally, anyone caught stirring would be responsible for getting the next round. Enjoy!

The Queens Chariot – A Coffee & Cocktails with Cindy short

Galliano the most popular liqueur of the 1970s, is composed of sweet vanilla and anisette upper notes and citrusy, woodsy/juniper undertones. This flavorful combination of more than 30 herbs (the exact combination being a meticulously guarded secret) pairs remarkably well with The Queen Bean's espresso. I am revisiting our textured, earthy friend Galliano by combining it with espresso, cream, and chocolate liqueur. The result is an unusual and flavorful cocktail. Enjoy!

Ginger honey cinnamon latte

Ginger is a fantastic flavor boost for coffee. Widely recognized for its health benefits, especially as it pertains to stomach issues, ginger also adds a wonderfully sweet and earthy flavor to your cup. Today I have combined ginger with two other health-boosting ingredients - honey and cinnamon. The result is a palate-pleasing, immune-boosting and decidedly healthy twist on your favorite morning libation. Enjoy!

Bean killer #1: coffee rust

Coffee rust? It's real and it's attacking your favorite coffee plants. Okay, that was a bit dramatic. While true, the situation isn't quite as apocalyptic as you may have been lead to believe -- though coffee rust does threaten global coffee supply, particularly Central American coffee, it does not signal the end of coffee.
