Coffee by Steph’s Samoa Cookie Draft Latte

Bottoms Up
By Anna Faller | May 7, 2022

What do you get when human connection meets craft? For West Coast transplant Stephanie Mora, the answer is an outrageous cup of coffee. A java junkie since college, Mora’s highly-caffeinated career was sealed by her experience on Central American coffee farms, where she saw first-hand how international purchases impacted the lives of local growers. “I keep that experience at the forefront of every business decision I make,” she says. Open since 2020, Coffee by Steph in downtown Grayling offers an array of fair-trade beans which are roasted on site in small batches. Guests can choose from traditional espresso selections, or, if a creative coffee is more your style, give the Samoa Cookie Draft Latte a try. Featuring foamy nitro cold-brew and your choice of milk (both dairy and plant-based are available), this dessert-worthy drink is flavored with coconut and caramel simple syrup and finished with a drizzle of rich Dutch chocolate. Girl Scouts, eat your heart out. $7.50/16oz. 223 Michigan Ave., Grayling. (989) 459-1888.
