Holiday Cheer with Karla Ly Quiñones García

Co-owner of Café Comunión in Puerto Rico, Karla shares her original holiday drink using Pacific Foods Barista Series.


Barista Magazine is proud to partner with Pacific Foods Barista Series for a special holiday celebration that we’re calling Holiday Cheer (follow along on Instagram at #baristaseriesholidaycheer).

We invited eight outstanding baristas from all over the United States to create an original drink with a winter holiday theme using one of the products in the Pacific Foods Barista Series line. And that was the only rule! Some of them turned in boozy Hanukkah drinks, others created a drink that’s easy to scale up for a crowd during Kwanzaa. But every single one of them has quality and creativity in common—we can honestly say these drinks are some of the most fun, unique, and delicious holiday coffee beverages we’ve ever tasted!

Every few days through the end of December, we’ll be posting one of the drinks right here at Barista Mag Online, and the posts will include a PDF download of each drink recipe.

First up: The incredible Karla Ly Quiñones García, who owns Café Comunión in Santurce, Puerto Rico, with her husband, Abner Roldán. Read on to learn about the inspiration for her drink, Miel de Avena, a spiced honey oat latte that uses Pacific Foods Barista Series Oat to reach perfection.

Stay tuned for more drinks from seven other outstanding baristas in the Pacific Foods Barista Series Holiday Cheer Project right here at Barista Mag Online, on the Pacific Foods Barista Series Instagram, and at Barista Magazine’s Instagram!
