I Don’t Drink Coffee

IMG_1015

Never have! Don’t. Nada. No. Nope. It’s not coffee. It’s an eggnog latte. I don’t do latte either! Well, there are exceptions. This is exceptionally good stuff. First you need a good latte machine. Who knew? I’m stuck at Mr. Coffee. But you do things right and with good coffee and good ingredients…. A friend Margaret Whalen introduced me to Kona coffee decades ago. It’s from Hawaii – Kona and expensive as all get out. But that is the start. And then, what’s not to like about eggnog? It tastes good therefore it’s bad for you. Forgo the barrista designs. I’m in it for the taste and mouth feel. Ah! A new sin to repent.

Sadly the machine suddenly quit. I’m contrite and swear to repent, now! The machine went to the coffee repair man with the hope it will recover and produce latte again soon. Meanwhile there is sadness on the counter. An empty space waits to be filled again.

    Although they are expensive I used to get the Mocha Grande at Starbucks! Full of cafienne and sugary chocolate flavor. I haven’t had one in years. I also like Chai Teas for a sweet hot drink. My favorite is Celestial Seasonings Chai Tea blend. I used the tea bags at least twice before throwing them out. As usual I add sugar and milk. Have only had one from Starbucks years ago, liked my homemade one better.
