I love this. I may need to make a sign for my kitchen. Coffee...it warms the heart.
I started drinking coffee many years ago and always puts LOTS of sugar and flavors in it. Now, I have a Nespresso machine and just love the way that the coffee ends up with a slight foam all over the top. Then, I add some half & half to my nespresso foamer and pour that on the top so I have a mound on the top like a fluffy cloud of yumminess! (and yes, I have a cup next to me as I type this). I can't quite remember when I stopped using sugar. It's just not as enjoyable to me anymore as the rich flavor of the coffee. Maybe it's my age.
I do enjoy the flavors of fall at Starbucks now though. The pumpkin spice is my fav right now, but all time best is the gingerbread. I don't think it comes out until after Thanksgiving. I do order it with half the amount of syrup. The almond joy creamer that you can buy in your dairy section is really good too! I have a slight coconut obsession.
There is just something about meeting up with a friend or hanging out at home with family... a cup of coffee brings you together...holding a warm mug in your hands...making holiday plans...or just catching up...it's the coffee talkin'.
