I’m really digging our new coffee from Kenya called Kiunyu. It’s sweet and complex with flavors as big as Hulk Hogan’s 24-inch Pythons. Get the region north of your neck ready for blasts of dried pineapple, mandarin orange, toasted coconut, and toffee. Mash the “add to cart” button if you dare, ‘cause this coffee will take your tongue to the top of Space Mountain. It may be the oldest ride in the park, but it has the longest line…woo!
