I absolutely love coffee. I really started to love it around sophomore year in high school. Before that, I would always just order the frapucchino drinks from Starbucks. Now that I'm a "big girl", I drink straight coffee with a little bit of Splenda. My favorite coffee drink is a non-fat latte which I like to treat myself to often when I'm at school. It's always convenient having a Starbucks that is literally a 5 minutes walk from your dorm. I also have this really great Gevalia two cup coffee maker that brews the coffee directly into a travel mug. I love that it can brew on a timer, so when I wake up, there is always a fresh cup of coffee ready for me to grab on the go. My favorite ground Starbucks coffee is by far the french roast. It is bold, and so delicious. I don't buy any other ground coffee. I can't wait for Starbucks to come out with the Pumpkin Spice Latte. That is my favorite drink during the fall, and I patiently wait its arrival every year around late September.
My favorite local coffee shop at home without a doubt is called Coffee Tree. There are several locations around where I live and they have the best coffee, along with some delicious pastries. There is one with a garage door type window that they open up in the summer so it's like an outdoor coffee shop. It's really neat and I definitely miss it while I am at school. I am so interested to hear what your favorite coffee drink or ground coffee is and what your favorite coffee shop is! I always like new suggestions on drinks to try!
Have a fantastic and fun-filled weekend! Enjoy one of the last weekends at the pool before Labor Day comes!

Mmmmm, I love pumpkin spice lattes!

Have you been to Cinnamon Bear in Hburg? One of my favorite places to study and get coffee when I was living there!

Hands down the Carmel Macchiato from Starbucks. I get it skinny so it's sugar-free and non-fat and it's still DELICIOUS. You should definitely try it! My entire meal plan during college was spent of these every day.

MM I love the Pumpkin Spice Latte too! Little secret: you can order it year-round, it's just not displayed on the menu. But the do still have the ingredients!! But it kinds just doesn't feel the same if it's not the fall.

I'm addicted to Starbuck's Frapps. I buy multiple cases and have one EVERY morning w/ my computer time b/f the children wake up! I've tried "real" coffee, but seems as though I put more sugar, cream, etc. than there is coffee!

I always love 'Buck's lattes! Pumpkin Spice? Yep, my fall favorite!

My hubs is a big coffee drinker. He loves "Dunkin Donuts" ground coffee. (And he gets a TON of different brands, but loves this best)! :)

Cheers to morning coffee!

There's a coffee shop in the town where I go to school called Donkey, and it is spectacular. It was actually voted the best coffee in the state! I usually get a caramel latte with soy milk, and I like to go there and do homework. We have a Starbucks, too, but it's pretty noisy and the chairs aren't as comfortable, haha.

girl! I am pretty sure the pumpkin spice latte is available all year now. I could be wrong, but I think so!! However, it would only be special in the fall =) haha!

Ooh, I love, love, love Pumpkin Spice Lattes - they may be my very favorite.

The rest of the year I usually drink White Chocolate Mochas or Caramel Macchiatos (I still cannot drink any coffee that is not 90% milk - oh, well).

I am OBSESSED with coffee as well (Starbucks especially!). I had some fresh ground dark roast beans this morning infact! My favourite indulgence is the Skinny Vanilla Latte! I have one whenever I see a Starbucks basically! It's a good thing there isn't one too near my house or I would spend all of my time there! I started drinking coffee around sophomore year as well and I am by far the biggest coffee-snob of all my friends! ;P

Gotta have my caffiene!
