Default Cabinet Stain Color

Does anyone know where I can get wood stain similar to the Toffee color here.

I can't find any similar colors by Cabot or Minwax. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have that color on maple in my Kitchen.
If you are doing it yourself its going to be tough in my opinion. Just a guess but the finish recipe is something like:
1) light brown stain
2) glaze or white wash
3) Pre-cat lacquer

You may also want to google wood dyes instead of stains

no one step product will give you that finish.

I am not necessarily looking for that type of finish (with the glaze, etc.) but more along the lines of that color. I have seen it called mocha, cinnamon, and a few others. Maybe in the end I will just end up having to mix various stains together to get something close.
