Q: Tell us about your barista’s choice drink.
A: My drink is a toasted coconut cappuccino that I’m calling the “I’m coco-NUTS for you”. It is a combination of espresso, steamed milk and my house made coconut syrup. The syrup is non-dairy, using coconut milk and sugar. It is warm, decadent and smooth.
Q: What charity are you choosing to donate proceeds of your drink to this month & why?
A: I’ve chosen the Inter-Faith Council for Social Service. They are located right here in Carrboro. The center of their mission is to confront poverty and build community. I think of them as a one stop shop for resources providing food, affordable housing, emergency financial assistance, advocacy. I have seen their aid help many people.
