The Sweet Lemon Cake Pop

Get Your Monthly Coffee Card
Some of my very best barista memories were when I tasted new coffees with my store’s customers. We’d talk about all the flavor nuances we loved that made each one so unique and special. As our customers explored different coffees, we had a punch card that would reward them with a free pound of coffee after they had purchased 12 bags. It was always a big deal when someone earned their free bag, because it meant they had really explored the different coffees we sold – but it was also a lot of work to earn that free bag! Over the years we’ve heard from coffee lovers that you would like to have a program to earn free coffee – one that would let you try new coffees and … more »
The Peaches & Cream Muffin is Here
I love it when we come out with something right as an MSI member asks for it. Just last month, user georginelove posted a request for the Peaches & Cream Muffin . Wish granted! Our new, moist vanilla muffin is bursting with chunks of peaches. Every bite will remind you of biting into a juicy peach. But the best part: the muffin top! We added even more peach pieces and then a generous topping of crunchy sugar to give it that satisfying crunch you love. Simply delicious and just peachy!
