When I am on road trips, whether it be to visit family, friends, or just heading back up to school, I will most likely need some sort of caffeine to keep me going. My stomach can’t handle carbonated beverages very well, so coffee is my drink of choice. I usually stop at a gas station and load up with the tallest cup I can get. It used to be that I had to try every flavor of cappuccino any gas station I came across would offer. Then I switched to coffee, but I put so many different flavors of creamer in it, it’s not much like coffee anymore. I usually take my coffee with one or two sugars and creamer. I can drink regular or flavored coffee, regular or flavored creamer, and either Splenda or Equal as my sweetener. My taste buds aren’t much for the bitter taste, but when in need, I can drink it black! After working with JL Hufford for a while, I began learning more and more about coffee, tea, and chai. This month I’d definitely like to give the readers a bit more direction on espresso, coffee and other beverages we sell so you can enjoy your cup, your way every morning. How you do you like your coffee, tea, or espresso? I'd really like to know and maybe we can find some cool ways to spice up your routine!
