Happy National Coffee Day

Hey everyone

You know I had to post!!! I think that we all have to drink a cup to those long nights and days when it was our only friend. When we met that special person(s) over a cup of coffee or even when they made us a cup when we were not feeling our best. Here's to coffee! Ha and here's my love for it in a few pic of me with a cup.

Espresso Dreams and Cups

Hey everyone

I know it has been a month! and this is by weekly. I apologize for being MIA but I have been around the internet/darknets and stuff. Eh, what can I say? Anyway enough chatting. I found my Ikea espresso cups that I need a stand or shelf for. New apartment, new things! These were packed away and I had forgotten about them ( among other things) what should I do with them?

A group outing: Coffeehouse Lingo

Hey everyone

I try to teach the kids how to order. There is a difference between an Ice mocha and a Mocha frappuccino. One is iced one is crushed ice and other ingredients( don't quote me.) Do you know your coffee lingo? Or even when your espresso taste weird metallic or lemon taste. I always tend to ask and make sure I learn when to ask for them to remake it. At times they are going so fast they are not producing great espresso. I found a very cool site about espresso.

Starbucks Daily Coffee Run: Carmel Espresso Granita


Hey my caffeinated friends!

Yes you know I was all over the new sunset menu at Starbucks when I received the email Monday. Yummy summery things after 3, lets do this!





What caught my eye was the above. the Caramel Espresso Granita. No I am not a caramel fan but I am a huge espresso fan (like you didn't know that) and well I winged it and got it because I had to find out how this slushy like drink would taste like with espresso and caramel poured on top. Verdict? It was good! I want it sweeter though. I would ask for classic syrup I have to have it a dash sweeter then I would have it as a treat once a week. Hey I have to continue to spoil myself with treats.

Icy/strong and sweet its my personality as a whole. Its a work of art. Also like me lol

Good job starbucks. I am on board with this one.

*note these are my lovely opinions and I was not contacted by Starbucks to write this. It is my own and my caffeinated review of a place I go to twice a day*

Peets Coffee Run: Coconut Blacktie

If you are in the west coast okay you may know or heard of Peets and in some places on the east coast such as here in Washington DC and mostly big cities and airports oh and in your local supermarket, you have seen the brand. I am blessed to have a few by me and one is coming even closer to me and I cant wait!!!!!!! I have received a coupon via the Peets Website (newsletter signup) and I ran to go try out the lovely selection of drinks that has coconut milk in it.

Now if you know me I do not like coconut juice. Milk I can work with when its mixed in something so I was a bit reluctant to try it but I love the black tie which is their cold brew. So yes I had it, loved it and its what I drink ! lol Try it, tell me how it is. I will say that its sweet and thats right up my alley because the sweeter the better for me!



Always try new things I say, if you do not know if you are allergic, simply look up what its made of and be educated before you walk in and try . Since I have a lot of food allergies you would think I would be afraid , not so much I have a vast knowledge and plus I love food and coffee so I am like there will be a variation made that I can drink of the same coffee drink lol.

Cold brew and a dash of sweetness with the creamy coconut milk to contrast the dark offset of the potent black coffee. I love it I have nothing bad to say.
