A Perfect Rose for Coffee Lovers

Today is March 13th and it’s 75 degrees along the southern shore of Lake Michigan. In fact it’s so beautiful that I’m thinking about the birds, bees and blooming flowers over my morning cappuccino.

A recommended pairing for flowers and coffee drinkers is the absolutely gorgeous Coffee Break Rose. It has dark orange petals with red edges and as the bloom opens, the combination of the colors creates a striking image of burnt terra-cotta and rose with a tip of crema. A favorite of floral designers and brides who use it to create imaginative bouquets, it is commercially available although in limited quantities.
