Coffee Mixes For Giving

From Brenda Hyde

I love to make and receive flavored coffees for the holidays. Combine any or all of these in a basket with one of those tall latte cups (I see bargains on these all the time!), a pretty spoon and some biscotti or cookies. Use GOOD quality coffee for the best results.
