You know I love brunch, right? Loove it. Well don’t worry, I’m not going to bore you with yet another post about brunch; today we’re talking about the real MVP of the brunch game; the fuel if you will. The coffee, of course! Coffee isn’t just the wind beneath my wings, it is my love language. I adore a delicious coffee, but it has to be flavored. It’s non-negotiable. Isn’t that why people spend exorbitant amounts of money on coffee drinks at coffee shops? For the delicious flavors? Well since I need to have coffee daily and don’t care to spend said exorbitant amounts of money to feed my need, I have made my own little coffee bar at home! Lydi – 1, Coffee shop – 0!
I’m so excited to debut my coffee bar for Easter brunch so my family can size up my Barista game (should I put out a tip jar? ;). I love making delicious coffee concoctions with Tate+Lyle® Gourmet Beverage Syrups. There are 4 delicious flavors I will be using to create coffee drink delights; Hazelnut Pure Cane Syrup, Caramel Pure Cane Syrup, Vanilla Pure Cane Syrup and Zero Calorie Vanilla Syrup. They’re made from 100% pure cane sugar and true vanilla, caramel and hazelnut flavor so they make perfectly delicious additions to my coffee bevs.
So technically, I guess you’re getting a #sneakpeak… welcome to my Easter Brunch coffee bar! It’s dressed up for you in its Sunday best.
And now for Lydi’s Cafe specials, may I take your order? 😉
