The Bean by Lauren Mote

Lauren Mote is a Bartender at The Refinery in Vancouver. After Lauren challenged some of her industry friends to name an ingredient or two which would make a great cocktail that she could create using the 2 ingredients as a bases for the drink and then add other ingredients which would add mystery and flavour I succumbed to the challenge. I suggested that she use Espresso and Cocoa Nibs, she sourced the nibs and concocted her beverage naming it “The Bean”.
