It is so funny because every time I go Sergio, my husband, goes crazy! Hahahha ??He says I become dangerous in there! And who doesn’t, everything is amazing in there, don’t you think? Well as soon as I went in I saw massive sign advertising matcha. But all of them containing too much sugar and cream and things that aren’t healthy for us.
