February means three things, in this order: Groundhog Day (come on, Phil!), Super Bowl (come on, Philly!), and Valentine’s Day. As a barista, I don’t have a whole lot to say about the first two, but I do know a thing or two about Valentine’s Day.
“Drink Your Heart Out.”
You see, a well-made latte is the perfect nightcap — or preview to a nightcap, if you catch my drift — for a night out with your special someone. After a candlelight dinner, and maybe a movie or show, why not enjoy the rich flavors of exquisitely textured milk, rich espresso, and possibly a sweet little touch of honey, vanilla or chocolate? There’s a lot to love in a latte… and who knows? Sitting together over coffee might be the loveliest part of this loveliest holiday.
