Thanks a Latte!


Is there anything better than coffee? I mean, really! I get out of bed just so I can have a cup of coffee. I drink it all day. My favorite ice cream is coffee flavored and my favorite dessert is Tiramisu! Everything is better with coffee.
So, what better way to say thanks than with coffee! This card would be great for a gift of Kona beans.

The most expensive coffee is Kopi Luwak, where the beans are processed through the intestines of the Asian Palm Civet and can be purchased in Samatra, Java, and Bali, in Indonesia for around $160.00 per pound. Yes, truth really is stranger than fiction!
