    Coffee - well and a bit of cream. No flavors, sugars, or whippy things. If it's really hot, pour the coffee over ice. Done.

    I always get an iced, unsweetened, green tea latte with an extra scoop of matcha. Refreshing!

    My favorite is the double chocolate chip frappucino....with extra whipped cream!

  • sewcreative1 Apr 8, 2012

    My favorite is the pumpkin spice latte. Especially in the fall on a cold or rainy day. Not a drop goes to waste!

    I am a sucker for a skinny vanilla latte. MmmMMM! Also, dying to take that trip. I haven't had a vacation in YEARS.

    I love the mocha frappe! Always hot though, not a big fan of cold coffee!
