Everyone knows the normal coffee or espresso based specialty drinks from a caramel macchiato to a vanilla latte to a mocha. But sometimes its fun to think outside the box.
I owned a small coffee house in Boise Idaho called the Shire and developed some specialty drinks that were way over-the-top but also were favorites of my patrons. Being the name of the shop was The Shire you'll notice many of the names are based off of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
Most of these drinks are unique in that that use both coffee and espresso!
