I've never had this at Starbucks... but that doesn't matter! Gevalia Dark roast was my brew of choice. I loved this citrus spiced coffee iced and I loved it warmed with hot milk. If my favorite chai had a cousin, this Cafe Rio is it! Chai for a relaxing indulgence, Cafe Rio for an energizing indulgence. I think I'm hooked! Thanks for sharing.
