Mocha Cheese Cake Torte

Mother's Day is coming soon and this cheese cake torte is perfect for Mom's special day! It has a rich chocolaty flavor with a hint of coffee and for that bakery finish, I garnished with whipped cream rosettes and a coffee bean! YUM!

Speaking of coffee beans, I just found a delicous boutique coffee company. A friend gave me a bag to try and boy oh boy did it go over big!! BLUECAF coffee roasters roast their beans within 24 hours of your personal order, so made to order!
