Lovin’ the Latte: Wilde Negrete


The pictures prove it — Lansing loves the Latte!

LANSING, Ill. (November 6, 2023) – Longtime Lansing resident Wilde Negrete happened to walk into Kdulche Café as Journal Publisher Melanie Jongsma and Managing Editor Josh Bootsma were there eating lunch. He agreed to try the newest Journal partnership product: the Lansing Journal Latte.

Negrete paired the Latte with the Lansing Crepe, another popular item on the Kdulche menu. He noted the latte’s strong coffee flavor, and caramel syrup, which he wasn’t used to, but enjoyed.

“It makes it tasty,” he said, adding that he’d order the drink again.
