We’ve got some very exciting news coming your way soon here at On The Menu, Sprudge’s recurring feature series dedicated to delicious signature drinks served at fine coffee bars near and far. But before summer starts in earnest and drink menus begin rolling out iced, frosted, and chilled coffee beverages we thought we’d take a look at some drinks that are still warming us up. At Monogram Coffee of Calgary, now through the end of June, you can get your hands on the Almond Blossom Latte from the mind of seasoned barista competitor and Canadian National Champion (and Monogram Coffee owner) Ben Put. We spoke with the team at Monogram to learn more about this delicious seasonal offering.
Tell us about your signature drink!
Our signature drink is called the Almond Blossom Latte and it is our interpretation of coffee meets spring! We have made a floral almond orgeat syrup with both rose water and orange blossom water, which makes for a really subtle and sweet floral flavor in the cup. It is paired with espresso and the milk of your choice, served hot or iced and topped with rose petals.
Who crafted your signature drink?
This signature drink was created by one of the owners of Monogram, Ben Put.
What unique ingredients does it contain?
It contains rose water and orange blossom, which combine to create a really beautiful floral flavor when paired with espresso.
Where is it available?

How much is it?
How long will it be on the menu?
It will be on the menu until the end of June when we launch our new summer menu.
Anything else you’d like to share about the drink?
We have had this drink on our menu a few times over the years and our customers really look forward to it. It is something a little different and unique with the fresh almond and florals and really tastes like spring in a cup.
