While looking through my most recent instagram photos, I noticed a theme.

Now I know I’m from Seattle, but this latte habit is actually a fairly new one for me. I’ve always enjoyed an occasional creamy coffee treat, but lately I’ve actually craved it. Is it the taste? The warmth? The experience? Maybe all of the above.
I’m not terribly picky about my coffee – except I like it decaf, nonfat and extra hot. And only half the amount of syrup as usual, but definitely not the sugar-free kind. Hold the whip.
Okay, maybe I am a bit high-maintenance.
Grabbing coffee while out and about can get a bit spendy and so I’m thinking about following my best friend K.C.’s lead and purchasing one of these:
It steams the milk to your desired temperature, then just pour over strongly brewed coffee, add syrup of choice and you’ve got your own homemade latte.
My kids will like that you can add chocolate chunks to it and make hot cocoa.
I do love blogs and coffee.
How about you? What’s the most high-maintenance coffee drink you’ve ever ordered?
