Cafe con leche now at South Florida Dunkin' Donuts

Lattes and cappuccinos are great, but a cafe con leche has a Latin kick. I remember the first time I had a cafe con leche, and I was impressed with its strong flavor. Now South Florida is in luck, because Dunkin’ Donuts serves cafĂ© con leche! The Dunkin' cafe con leche features freshly brewed espresso from Fair Trade Certified coffee beans, steamed milk and sugar, for $1.99. You can pick one up at Dunkin' Donuts locations in southeastern Florida from West Palm Beach south.

I had a chance to sample Dunkin' Donuts' cafe con leche at a tasting event here in South Florida. I discovered the new drink was the idea of Steve Roitstein of the Miami Afro-Cuban funk band PALO!, who tweeted about it. That's the power of Twitter! Not only did a group of South Florida social media folks get a chance to try the sabor of the cafe con leche, but Dunkin' Donuts also let us try some other goodies like the Coolatta:

(My baby was going for the whipped cream, not the coffee. Really!)

And their chocolate donuts....

(Who knew penguins liked chocolate donuts?)

...and I tasted their veggie flatbread. Mmm.

Dunkin' Donuts also gave us the cutest thumb drive ever!

Dunkin' Donuts offered free samples of their products and provided a Dunkin' Donuts tote bag with the thumb drive and a PALO! CD. I also was randomly chosen to win a Dunkin' Donuts robe at the event.
