I recently sampled a couple of varieties of Coda Coffee, Fair Trade and Organic certified coffees from a family-run Denver coffee company. I enjoyed the coffees by themselves (read my review of the coffees here), but was thrilled to get recipes for some delicious and fun hot coffee drinks to make at home. These would be ideal for the holidays, and a sure way to impress your guests.
