ORLANDO, Fla. (May 4, 2021) – Squeeze the day, coffee lovers! Add a little zest to your morning routine or savor a guilt-free treat any time with Barnie’s Coffee & Tea Co’s newest limited-time flavor, Lemon Cookie medium roast coffee.
A medium roast blended from 100% Arabica coffee, Barnie’s new Lemon Cookie offers a creamy, buttery, sugar cookie taste punctuated with a hint of sweet lemon. Delicious served both hot and iced, a 6-ounce cup has less than five calories, is sugar-, fat-, nut- and gluten-free, and available in decaf. When paired with touch of cream and a sweetener of choice, Barnie’s latest flavor delivers a guilt-free treat.
While traveling may still be postponed for many due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the familiar aromas of Italy is as close as the kitchen and a coffee maker with Barnie’s newest brew. “Our research found that dessert coffee is very popular among today’s consumers and our customers. We wanted to create a coffee that is a little lighter on the palate than decadent chocolate or caramel, and a bit sassier, too,” explained Barnie’s Director of Coffee Programming Dustin Finch.
“Surprisingly, coffee and lemon go very well together,” Finch continued. “Lemon is one of the flavors that has been mixed with coffee since the beginning of, well, coffee. Italians have embraced the combination of coffee and lemon cookies; they’ve been enjoying them with their espresso forever. For example, a Café Medici consists of lemon rind, sugar and an espresso. The lemon sweetens up the coffee and gives it a little zing.”
