Think about all the different warm, winter flavours that you know, and love and gingerbread is definitely up there as one of the most welcoming flavours.

As nostalgia goes, a gingerbread latte is right up there, placing you back to amazing childhood memories and the magical essence of the festive period. In a latte, the flavour gingerbread is not overpowering, instead it adds a subtle flavour and undertone that works perfectly with the crisp, cold winter air.
A favourite with many coffee drinkers during winter is the marshmallow latte.
