Stacy and Coffee . . . .

<3 BFF. <3

I love coffee! It's funny because just a few years ago I could not stand the taste of coffee, much less enjoy it. It was not until I started Nursing school that I actually forced myself to drink coffee during the long study hours I suddenly had to endure. After several months of drinking coffee, I found that I actually enjoyed it. And now? I am a coffee maniac! I seriously love it. Now, I'm still kind of a coffee baby, because I definitely have to have the fru-fru coffee with lots of good stuff in it. But I love it, nonetheless!

Starbucks is my one big weakness right now. My drink (venti sugar-free hazelnut soy-milk latte) is not only incredibly delicious but it's actually good for me! I get a serving and a half of my calcium for the day, which otherwise is difficult for me to get, since I don't drink cow's milk much anymore. However, the painful side to all of this is that my favorite drink also costs $4.60! Gheeze. Soooooo . . . . I've decided to start making this exact drink for myself at home. I'm going to the grocery store to find some sugar-free syrups and I've already purchased the starbucks coffee. I always have soy milk in my fridge, so all I need is a steamer. I am planning to go by Bed Bath and Beyond sometime today to purchase that. It may be a big investment up-front for all of this stuff, but I figure it will save me somewhere around a gajillion dollars in the long-run, so it's worth it!

I am an Starbucks addict also Stacy. I love the Cafe Moca's and got hooked during Christamas when the had the peppermint flavored ones. Oh man....so good. My beloved wife gave me a gift card to feed my addiction for valentines day.

I hear you on the Starbucks/Coffee thing. I am addicted to the double espresso that Starbucks sell in the store. I drink two of those little suckers with a red bull. Maybe our next get together should be at Starbucks!!!

mmmm... I am also a huge Starbucks fan. I've tried making it at home, but for some reason, for me, its just not the same. Granted, I don't have all the cool gadgets to make it just right either. Hope your "investment" will save your pocket in the long run!
