coffee connoisseur?

I am most certainly NOT an expert when it comes to coffee.

Here is what I know about it.

It smells good.

A frappucino means it's cold and like a slushie.

A mocha has chocolate in it.

There you have it.

However, I have been learning to like the taste of coffee more and more. I'm not a big coffee drinker, and I don't really "need" the caffeine.

There are certain occasions when caffeine is just what I need to do the trick, but I guess the fact of the matter is that I never became dependent on it, because it doesn't actually give me energy. It more or less calms me down. Which is odd, seeing as how it is an upper.

Anyways, I bought myself an almond flavored cappucino this morning and it was seriously oh so tasty.

I have decided. to. broaden. my. coffee. horizons.

Any suggestions? What's your favorite coffee drink?

So, here are a few suggestions. I am assuming since you have a Wegman's near you, that you also have a Starbucks. I don't know if they have started it yet, but in the fall they have a Pumpkin Spice Latte that is awesome. Then down the road at Christmas time they have an Egg Nog Latte. I personally prefer the Egg Nog Chai Latte, with tea instead of coffee.
I also really enjoy a raspberry mocha on occasion. But all those drinks are not the best for you so I only have them a couple times a year.
Enjoy your exploration into the coffee world!

Sadly, I'm addicted to coffee. I get bad headaches if I don't get any by noon. I've had serious withdrawals from caffeine for both my pregnancies. It's a slippery slope, caffeine.

With that said, I love coffee and will never give it up! I don't go out for coffee much, but if I do, my standard is a nonfat vanilla or hazelnut latte. Unless it's December in which case I will get a nonfat white peppermint mocha. Yuummm!! I prefer lattes to cappuccinos because they're less foam, more coffee. :)

You've read about my love of coffee. When I go to Starbucks (which I call Stars with bucks, because frankly, they are the only ones who can afford to drink anything there) But, anyway when I'm there I usually get an Americano with hazelnut and a ton of room for cream. It's pretty much diluted espresso which makes for a really good cup of coffee. You can actually get them at most coffee places and they are not expensive. You can get any flavor, too!
