Coconut Spice Coffee Latte by Eva Kosmas Flores

The shorter days and cold weather have left me feeling more tired than normal. I start to get sleepy at about 7 pm, and slowly make my way to my bed where it’s warm and cozy and I can sit by my reading lamp and putz around on the computer. I know that I shouldn’t be getting tired so early, but whenever it gets dark I just can’t help it, it makes me sleepy. So, I’ve started drinking coffee in the afternoon to counteract this seasonal sleepiness. The array of coffee beans and roasts available has been endlessly fun to experiment with, as have been my experiments in homemade latte-making, my favorite of which I am sharing here today

Coconut Spice Coffee Latte by Eva Kosmas FloresI took bit of coconut milk and mixed it with some drip coffee, brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. It’s simple, takes only a moment to make, and tastes like Christmas in Thailand. So rich, so comforting, and soooo velvety in texture. For the drip coffee, I used TOMS Roasting Co.’s Thankful Blend, with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg that compliment the drink perfectly. For those of you familiar with TOMS shoes community outreach projects (buy a pair of shoes and they donate a pair to someone in need), you’ll be pleased to know that with each purchase of a bag of their coffee, they’ll provide one week of clean water to impoverished communities.ย Coconut Spice Coffee Latte by Eva Kosmas Flores

Everybody wins! Also, the kind folks over at Toms are giving away a bag of their Thankful Blend to three of you, you can enter through instagram here by following me and TOMSย on instagram and commenting on the gram with what you’re most thankful for.
