Oh the creamy goodness!

I fooled you with the title didn't I?

I don't know what it is about Starbux coffee. I have a cappacino/expresso maker at home. I am quite good at making a latte, cap or mocha. Oh the frothy goodness! Warms my tummy to the core. So if I am so good at it, why do I pay $4 every other day for this yummy treat. As I was sitting in the line of 15 cars ahead of me, I thought, "It has to be to save time"! I am only fooling myself here. Waiting in a Sbux line takes forever and I am almost never on time for work when I do. The only reason my son sits through it is the anticipation of a promised doughnut. His mouth waters just as much at mine when you approach and start to hear the roaring sounds of the frother and you get a wif of the fresh coffee aroma from perking fresh coffee beans picked by hand from the Himalayas. I calculate that I buy Sbux 3 to 4 times a week. That runs me $468 to $624 a year. When you think about that in coffee beans, that's alot of coffee beans. So why do I do it? The answer is simple....I can't make croissants...ya gotta have a coissant to go with your $4 cup of coffee...right?

Or is it pure laziness? I will never cop to that!

What do you order El?

I get a grande Caramel Machiatto, nonfat, made with vanilla splenda, extra hot.

I think that is why we pay 4 bucks a coffee...who else is going to kiss our ass to make it just right???!!!

In summer, sometimes I like a grande caramel Frappe... I want one!

I like a Venti Latee with extra froth and sometimes whip cream.

Sometimes when it's warm out I like the Venti Java Chip Frappacino with whip and choco syrup.....hhhhhhuuuuuuuummmmmm

I don't drink coffee personally - never have, never will.

But that reminds me of a Denis Leary bit where he talks about whatever happened to "coffee-flavored coffee."
