The fine edge of a premium glass rim can really add a sense of luxury and exquisiteness to a drinking experience. This moment can be elevated by adding further texture and flavour. With the ‘Queen Bee’, we add a freshly ground coffee bean sugar powder for that result. The strong aroma and bitter sweet taste binds the whole drinking experience together.
