Quarantinis with Minor Figures

This week we've invited over a VERY special guest to our blog. Not just any guest, but someone who specialises in one of our very favourite things: coffee. And not just any coffee, but some of the best damn coffee you can get! 

Take it away Minor Figures...

We here at Minor Figures are a company with a simple mission statement: invent great coffee products so that more people can enjoy better coffee. From Barista Oat M*lk to Nitro Cold Brew Coffee, we want our products to surprise and delight people. The only constant is that all our products are 100% plant-based with no added sugar.

Staying home and staying sane can be difficult. So our team is making it a little easier with our “fool-proof” nitro-infused drink recipes so you can feel like you're in your favourite brunch spot or cocktail bar hangout. Our nitro-infused cold brew coffee and chai cans are perfect poured straight over ice, but by adding just a handful of ingredients from your fridge or liquor cabinet, your “quarantini” drinks menu will be elevated to a whole new level!
