LANSING, Ill. (January 18, 2024) – The Lansing Journal Latte makes a great Christmas gift, particularly when combined with lunch and conversation. That’s what Patti Jongsma discovered when she was treated to a Kdulche experience by her daughter (this reporter), who always finds it difficult to shop for her mother.

What’s a Lansing Journal Latte?

The Lansing Journal Latte is a signature beverage created by Kdulche owner Eduardo Zepeda. The blend of caramel, chocolate, and vanilla flavors celebrate Lansing’s friendly diversity, and the rich espresso and cream evoke Lansing’s only newspaper.

The beverage is available only in Lansing, Illinois, only at Kdulche Cafe.

The Lansing Journal has created a “Love Lansing a Latte” shirt design to celebrate the unique partnership with Kdulche.

Love Lansing a Latte is available as a shirt, sweatshirt, or hoodie from The Lansing Journal’s TeePublic store. In the image at the top of the page, Melanie is wearing a Lightweight Hoodie in Vintage Grape. Click to shop the options.
