I get starbuck's grande cappuccino every day. I need it now as I'm addicted. You? Happy Monday.
what does that mean?
then make another one using the coffee from the first one in place of water to make a super strong espresso
is this true?
sounds pretty wasteful and pointless.
As soon as I started working in London, I bought coffee every morning, lunch in pret every day....then I realised I was spending £50 a week on coffee and lunches so I stopped. I get them one on a Friday which is alright.
I've started getting a nice coffee on Saturday mornings as a pleasant treat, I don't really want to make it something I rely on to get through the work day.
Also, shouldn't this be sean's thread?
and its even easier to forget about it when you pay on your card all the time.
after I've got in to work. Kick back with a long black and read the paper. I have another at about 2:30 in the afternoon, too.
None of this starbucks shit, though.
Didn't manage it today though so may go and buy a latte
I do like the frappuccinos though. The secret is to go when it's half-price frappuccino time.
A: Yes, but only one - "At the mei rally cant wait for the 3rd dove to come". But half-price Frappucino time is clear second place
If you believe enough as you walk in the doors of one of their franchises it will reveal itself to you.
Only the penitent shall have a half price frappucino... Only the penitent shall have a half price frappucino
Surely a golden and bejeweled frappucino is the only one fit for the king of men... *melts* *screaming*
When nobody is having their lunch break
Luke... I am your frappucino
Man, that stuff is good. It's taken me ten minutes to write out this post because my hands are shaking so much.
My tastebuds say no no, but at 40p a cup, my wallet says "That's still a lot to be paying for stuff that tastes like the inside of a toaster"
i pay 80p for the canteen stuff that tastes like its been sat stewing for 2 months before being livened up with some peat. Turbo caffeine content though. Makes me go mental
If I can't get decent coffee, I'll just make a tea instead. Or if I'm with others at a cafe and I know the coffee's shit, my latest trick is to order affagatto.
So would take my entire break to cool to a drinkable temperature.
I'd make my own (frequently do), but without access to washing up liquid my mug gets utterly skanky after a while. Solution: bring in washing up liquid. Like I've been promising myself I will every day for the past 2 months.
and starbucks is fucking good. like a friend for your first difficult hour at work.
especially good for a meeting first thing.
set up moka pot on stove
gurgle gurgle gurgle
slurp slurp slurp
not sure why I quite often go there instead of the nice looking cafe nearby.
...so im already IN
I do have coffee though - lots of coffee
...rather irritating. But, the sad thing is, I am yet to fathom a reason why it irritates me. It just does.
they were very refreshing. But so very expensive :( gonna stop it now.
fucking aeropress man, shit's good.
It tastes awful, but it's cheap and one of the few places open when i go to work.
Not slurped out of horrible styrofoam cups at mouth-burning temperatures.
So coffee is what I have when I get home from work. Mmm, 25 aprox minutes and I'll be brewing up a lovely pot for consumption.
There is a fresh pot of strong filter coffee when I get to the office. There are some people who still get theirs before work, they tend to drive BMWs and annoy me when It's time to go home.
it's called Frothy & Fun or something. Seriously. It is heaving every morning. I will never buy from it.
I makes my coffee at home. And sometimes at Intermezzo next to the cinema if i'm feeling flash.
I love also how you can set the strength of the double espresso from 1 (quite strong) to 4 (headrush oh my god im going to die and im in the mood for dancing). It tastes like tar and petrol and god knows what.
