Who else love fancy coffee?
From the first hot silky sip that slowly rolls over my tongue and warms my belly, I fall in love with coffee over and over again. But not the plain jane black coffee, the drip coffee that can be found at every gas station and Waffle House. I love fancy coffee… a good creamy latte is my heart and joy. And if my barista can master a tulip or a kitty, I'm in love for life!
I didn't start drinking coffee until I was in my 30's. After my children were out of diapers and off to school, I learned how to take some time for little pleasures just for me. I discovered I adore little coffee houses with Indie music and fresh made whipped cream. But Starbucks is really my second home since where I live isn't a coffee haven since we left Seattle.
What's your order? Do you experiment with different flavors? Or are you like my husband, with a standard order everytime?
Creating Coffeehouse Lattes At Home Isn't Impossible
I'm not sure I know anyone who can afford to indulge in a daily fancy coffee outing. I can lose myself for hours and spend $20 easily relaxing in comfy chairs, sipping lattes and nibbling on scones.
Instead, I treat myself at home to my own housemade blends and I've even been working on my latte art! ( I've mastered clouds, Slimer from Ghostbusters, and once a fat sheep!)
Our Latte Recipes:
These are just a few of our latte recipe creations. I find that in the cooler weather, I'm always more inspired to create more hot drinks than cold. But we have come up with quite a few cold options too.
Even though espresso is my favorite. I am also a huge tea drinker. In our family, a vanilla London Fog latte is a house favorite.
But nothing can ever replace fancy coffee!
