There’s nothing quite like an iced cold coffee on an especially slow morning, am I right? Even though I am a morning person through and through and don’t necessarily need coffee to get going, I find myself craving an iced coffee pretty much every day. Sure, there are days that I am off to a slow start and need coffee to get me going, but most days, I just crave the taste. For years, I drank shitty coffee. YUP, shitty coffee. You mine as well call it milk with a little bit of coffee mixed in. Extra cream, extra sugar – ya know, the stuff that *really* doesn’t do anything for you and your motivation. Over the years, my coffee palate has matured tenfold and I will now pretty much drink any kind of coffee, minus made-at-home coffee.
I know, I know.
No matter what the weather is like (blizzards and all), you bet your bottom dollar that I am refusing to drink made-at-home coffee and on my way to the closest Dunkin’ or Starbucks to get an iced coffee. It’s truly a problem but I have accepted it as a problem and I’m working on it.
There are still days on occasion that I do drink a caramel swirl iced coffee with cream and sugar from Dunkin’ but most days I drink cold brew (or nitro cold brew), black. I honestly never thought I’d see the day that I would be drinking black coffee.
I’m basically a bona fide adult now, right?
If I’m not drinking cold brew (or my Dunks iced coffee for a sugary kick!), my other go-to orders are:
- Medium roast coffee with almond milk and toffee nut (hot or iced, Starbucks)
- Hot coffee, black
Since I’m not ready to kick my expensive coffee habit quite yet, I mine as well give some new coffee shops and orders a try – right??? Even though I tend to order the same coffee most days, I do try to order something different if I’m checking out a new coffee spot. When we were in SLC, I had the most delicious bourbon caramel latte and crave it pretty much every day.
So tell me, are you a coffee drinker? What’s your go-to order?
