One Village Coffee’s Horchata Recipe

Our friends at One Village Coffee know a thing or two about a delicious brew. In this recipe, originally featured on their blog, they use their coffee in a refreshing and sweet cold beverage that’s a true crowd-pleaser. As they explain on their blog, “Horchata is a milky drink made from either almonds, rice or nuts.  In [this recipe] you’ll find rice, cinnamon, sugar, water and last, but not least, coffee.”
