Holiday Menu at Peixoto Coffee

Head to Chandler's Peixoto Coffee right now and enjoy drinks off the coffee shop's holiday menu. Two of the drinks feature locally roasted Zak's chocolate, one being the Zak's Cap made by melting the small-batch 60 percent chocolate into one of Peixoto's cappuccinos. Our favorite indulgence from the menu, however, would be the Zak's Drinking Chocolate, a rich, not-to-sweet cup of 60 percent chocolate melted simply with steamed milk. Other holiday menu items include a peppermint mocha made with locally made Fluff It marshmallows, peppermint hot chocolate, cacao nib cold brew, and the mel mentha latter, made with mate tea steeped with fresh mint and honey. For more information, check the Peixoto Facebook
