Let me tell you about tiramisu

The chocolatey, sweet tiramisu frappe from Rachel’s Rose Cottage tastes just like the popular Italian dessert.

Welcome to the Cottage’s Coffee column!

This week I’m reviewing the tiramisu frappe from Rachel’s Rose Cottage. If you love tiramisu, you’ll love this drink.

One day, I was walking towards Rachel’s and I noticed the tiramisu frappe on the menu. I decided to give it a try, and I’ll be honest: I didn’t have high hopes for it to taste similar to the dessert, but when I took my first sip, I was hooked. It tasted so good and exactly like tiramisu. It had that rich coffee flavor mixed with the right amount of chocolate and the whipped cream on the bottom gave it the creamy texture of tiramisu. The baristas at the coffee shop always do a great job with creating new drinks and never miss. I suggest asking them for their drink recommendations, and this frappe is a great drink to try. 

This drink transports you to Venice, Italy, on a beautiful day where the sky is blue and crystal clear, without a cloud in sight. You get on a beautiful gondola and enjoy a relaxing boat ride through the city. You’re dressed in your best on this warm, sunny day, and the sea breeze cools you down on your adventure through the city. The water is a gorgeous turquoise color, and you almost want to gently glide your hand through it, but you don’t want to tip the boat. You enjoy some tasty tiramisu as you travel down the city’s canals.
