Spotlight On KEMOSABE Chocolate Irish Cream Gourmet Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 3/17/2016

“What a terrible day to march in the St. Patrick’s Day parade,” my high school classmate, Noreen, said to me as I was finishing getting dressed in my bedroom, referring to the wind swept rain that was forecasted all day today in Manhattan.

“You girls had better dress warmer than that,” my Mom said when she popped her head into my bedroom to say hello to Noreen holding a cup of Kemosabe chocolate irish cream gourmet coffee. “It’s supposed to be only forty-one degrees at noon. You girls are going to freeze wearing those short skirts.”

“Mom, it’s the school uniform! If we don’t wear our uniform Sister Joan will crack me on my knuckles with her wooden ruler tomorrow in class. “

“Well at least put on some woolen tights and for heaven sake, pull your shirt down to your knee cap, where its support to be!” Mom demanded.  “I’ll deal with Sister Joan tomorrow, she stated as she walked away talking another sip of her chocolate Irish cream gourmet coffee.

Shortly before 11:30 AM Noreen and I arrived at 42nd Street and Pershing Square in Manhattan. “Noreen, we had better go into Pershing Square Café and get some coffee to keep warm,” I said, referring to the fact that, true to the forecast, it was windy, rainy and about forty-degrees.

“That coffee your mother was drinking this morning when she came into your room smelled delicious,” Noreen stated as we stood in line to order our coffee.

“Actually it was Kemosabe chocolate irish cream gourmet coffee,” I replied as the line inched forward.

“Do you think they’ll have it here?”

“Of course, this is an Irish owned café. But you know Noreen, we’ll find out in a minute as we're next in line.

“Do you sell Kemosabe chocolate Irish cream coffee? Noreen politely asked the coffee barista.

“Why yes young lady,” he replied in a thick Irish accent. “We must have sold several hundred this morning already.”

“Good then. We’ll have two twenty ounce containers to go.”

“Excellent choice,” he replied. “This chocolate irish cream gourmet coffee is not only delicious it will keep you warm while you’re at the parade.”

“Speaking of the parade, Noreen, we had better get a move-on or we will be late for the 11:45 AM meeting time Sister Joan set for us to meet at Bryant Park.”

“I agree, Susan. The last thing I want today is for Sister Joan to crack my knuckles because we’re late. Let’s get our gourmet coffee and get going.”
