Coffee Cajeta Ice Cream


Coffee Cajeta Ice Cream
David, 23 Jun

Who knew that Mexico was famous for ice cream?

Delving into the realities of white, middle-class life in NYC in the mid-2000s, SWEETBITTER is a smart read that would pair perfectly with a glass of sauvignon blanc or with a day spent on the beach. This book, from the eye-catching jacket, Danler's origin story, and the literary acclaim, screams trendy.
