Recipe for Making a Cafe Au Lait using Ambiance Kona Style Coffee from Smart & Final

Yesterday, I made a video on how to make a specialty coffee drink, Cafe Au Lait, using Ambiance new coffee.  I used Ambiance Kona Style coffee but it really doesn't matter which variety you use.  I change the type of coffee I use all the time so I'm never bored with the taste. 

Well, this really isn't a pretty picture of me! But the coffee drink is geat!

Smart & Final released their new coffee line, Ambiance.  There are six varieties: 

House Blend : A medium to dark roast
Kona Style: A medium Roast  
French Vanilla: A medium Roast
French Roast: A dark roast
Gourmet Supreme: A mild to medium roast

My favorite coffee from Ambiance is the French Vanilla.  A very close second is the Kona Style. 

Which coffee do you think you'd like to try?

I have a "frother" as well. Makes skim milk seem like cream!! Will have to try with some cinnamon like yours (and of course Ambiance coffee).

They all sound good - I've lately liked adding vanilla creamer, so I'd try the French Vanilla
