Those blasting down Chinden Boulevard may have found themselves rubbernecking at a marquee board so wacky, so preposterous, that they concluded they didn't read it properly.
But it's no mirage: All the Buzz Coffee does, in fact, serve piping hot bacon mochas.
Mary Lynn Dehner didn't set out to merge meat and mocha. People kept coming through the drive-thru of her family owned kiosk (formerly Hotties Mochas and More) and requesting bacon in their morning Joe.
But it wasn't until she and her son saw a piece on the Food Channel about a bacon milkshake that she took the request seriously, realizing that it must be some sort of flavoring syrup. The bacon syrup, unavailable locally, had to be specially ordered from Torani.
It isn't like drinking from a cup of drippings, though. It's far closer to a traditional mocha than one would believe. Instead of a strong meaty flavor, it has a rich mapley sweetness, with hints of cured bacon mixed in with the existing richness of a chocolatey mocha. It's certainly not for the diabetic set, but if there's a better meat-themed coffee beverage available on the side of the road in Garden City, we don't know about it.
