In high school, I started every day with a Grande Soy Tazo Chai. (Isn't that fun to say?) ... and when my family went to China the year I graduated, my brother and I couldn't wait to get our photo taken next to the Starbucks in the Forbidden City. In my first year of university, I did a design project on the history of the plastic lid of their disposable cups, and how the success of the raised lid is due to the improper way in which they foam their milk. (A proper cappuccino is topped off with microfoam, not dishwasher suds!)
These days, I'll opt for a plain old cup of their boldest brew, sometimes with a flavor shot of vanilla to sweeten things up.
When I do drink coffee, I prefer it in a ceramic mug with a saucer, and great company to relax and enjoy it with. I live at Starbucks ground zero land but I really don't care for this 'hurry up i gotta have my coffee and get outta here' attitude.
However, I do occasionally indulge at SB and the double tall nonfat latte is my fave. I used to drink frappacinos too awhile back, but I gained weight as a result - no more sweet drinks for me.
Like to endulge occasionally in the caramel frappichino light and if I am REALLY feeling frisky I get the espresso brownie (orgasmic). However, before I began to watch my weight Iliked the original. Also, I love verona coffee and the Italian roast coffee (both are amazing alone or even better when eating the brownie)
