Somehow connecting cold-brewed coffee overtones with smoky cinnamon bark spicing, powdered sugar marshmallow fluffing and pancake-battered maple syruping, its spritzy lemon twist rims the light-roast java stead but the limey cologne waver sometimes clutters the spiced coffee finish. An intriguingly offbeat cinnamon coffee cake elixir.
