Nothing is as soothing on a cold, crisp autumn morning than a hot latte, especially the lavender honey rose latte at White Swan Coffee Lab on Franklin Street.
While owner David Rudibaugh says the floral flavors might seem more suitable for spring, the combination of lavender, raw honey, a splash of rosewater, espresso, and steamed milk gives a comforting feeling perfect for fall.
“It has flavor and sweetness that won’t knock you down,” he says.
For those who prefer iced drinks during cooler months, Rudibaugh recommends the Turn Table Eclipse. Cold brew coffee is combined with activated charcoal, Ale-8-One soda, and blackberry flavoring and topped with a splash of cream to create a fading effect from white to black.
“They’re both drinks you won’t find anywhere else,” says Rudibaugh.
