Becoming a Coffee Addict

I've never been a coffee lover in my entire life. Before 1 cup of instant coffee is good enough for me(which I drink occasionally...usually when I need something to keep me from falling asleep). I get palpitations if I take more. Then I was introduced to brewed coffee. I didn't like it at first since I find it too strong...until I tasted Starbucks coffee. I started liking Starbucks coffee when I started collecting stickers to be able to get the Starbucks planner. On alternate days, I would drop by starbucks and order Peppermint Mocha before I go to the office. Then I got hooked! I took advantage of the free coffee coupons included in the planner. Then I got pregnant! Just when I was starting to enjoy coffee...what good timing! I had to stop drinking coffee in any form for 9 months!

A few months after I gave birth, I started drinking again. Since Peppermint Mocha was only a seasonal drink, I tried Caramel Macchiato. I loved its sweet taste and the coffee is not too strong. I loved it so much I tried it's cold version and was hooked (I usually order the venti size)! Now I look forward to a cup of Starbucks coffee each day hot or cold!

I realized my recent addiction is putting a hole in my pocket (imagine 120-150 bucks a day for coffee!) so I decided buying coffee grinds is a cheaper alternative so I can continue enjoying my Starbucks coffee. I bought a pack just the other day and now I enjoy 2 cups of Starbucks coffee each day...what a good way to look forward going to work!
