Horchata Latte

The Horchata Latte combines the refreshing, sweet flavors of traditional horchata—a rice-based drink popular in Latin America, especially Mexico—with the rich intensity of espresso. This unique beverage merges the creamy, cinnamon-spiced taste of horchata with the deep, bold flavors of coffee, creating a delightful fusion that's both invigorating and comforting.
