The last coffee I had this year was the above: G&B Coffee's New Year's Eve special Toffee Nut Latte, with bits of toffee and a packet of Sudden Coffee and served with a little carafe of warmed, slightly frothy almond-macadamia milk. You rip open the coffee, then add the milk and ta da: instant toffee latte. It was terrific.
Around this time of the year last year, I had 71 coffee shops here on Coffee LA; with this year finally -- finally -- coming to a close, the guide now has 87. Here's to hoping good things, coffee-related and otherwise, for 2017.
