The A Team

This coffee cocktail is named after its creators and unionistas, Annie and Ashley. After experimenting with the best flavours, our Events & Social Media Manager and Coffee Support Account Manager came up with a fresh and moreish coffee cocktail that we challenge you to sip rather than gulp down in two mouthfuls (please drink responsibly).

 

Result

A lively and zesty, energising summer's evening drink

Good for

Garden Parties and barbecues
