Coffee...caf or decaf? (Plus coffee recipes)
Happy Saturday! I hope you are all getting some rest this weekend :-)
Today's topic to be discussed is coffee! About one week ago I took a poll on Facebook to see who enjoys coffee and WHY! I asked who preferred coffee for the taste and who enjoyed it for the caffeine. Here were my results:
Out of 31 people:
17 enjoyed the taste
4 drank it for the caffeine only
9 drank it for both taste and caffeine
1 person hates coffee (you know who you are)
So there you have it...the majority of people drink coffee because they enjoy its comforting flavor.
About two weeks ago, I decided to switch to decaf coffee because it was truly the flavor of the coffee I enjoy. That is actually what prompted me to take this poll :-)
On that note... here are some flavored coffee recipes you can make for yourself in the comfort of your own home! Save that $5 that you would spend at Starbucks and in a few months go and buy something nice for yourself or donate the money to your Church or a special charity!
Lesson learned: Flavor over legal stimulant...
Vanilla Cinnamon Coffee
Creamy Spiced Coffee with Spiced Whipped Topping (topping also great for desserts)
Chocolate Vanilla Coffee
Apple Cider Coffee
