What does your Coffee say about you?

Hmmmm I never thought drinking Frappacino's made me a coffee drinker.

I drink many of those. My coffee starts my brain. Without it, well, it isn't pretty.

You would need the espresso machine too, look what I found though! I bet you could make this with regular coffee...  http://www.food.com/recipe/starbucks-mocha-frappuccino-146563?layout=desktop


Quoting BellaByrdie:

I wish I could find a Frappuccino machine.  lol

Quoting soon2bmomof3619:

 

Your welcome, they used to be a lot more expensive than that, we probably still wont get one because we wouldn't use it enough and we really don't have the space to store one, but probably when we get a bigger place with more kitchen cabinets.

Quoting Anonymous:

Oh wow I didn't know you could get them so cheap! Thanks 

 

Quoting soon2bmomof3619:

 

Do you get a cap often? If so try to curb the urge and put the money away in an envelope to save for one, you can get a fairly decent one for fairly cheap, I like lattes sometimes and DF likes espresso, so we've looked into it a few times, but just decided on a nicer coffee maker so we don't have to fidget with it while half asleep lol, we need it to function.

Oh yeah, most coffee shops are way over priced. I want a cappuccino machine so I can make them myself :)  

 

Quoting soon2bmomof3619:

Oh, I just recognized them from the Starbucks menu, I've seen them on the menus at some of the more upscale coffee shops at the mall, but Starbucks popped into my head. At any rate I don't spend that kind of money on coffee, they never make it right, and this is coming from someone that worked for Dunkin Donuts for 4 years. I also know how much they mark up the products, they make at least 50% profit at Dunkin on most things, it's more like 90% on a donut, so I have a ballpark how much profit the places that charge $5 for a medium coffee are making and it's sickening to me.

Starbucks isn't the only place that makes these drinks... 

 

Quoting soon2bmomof3619:

I don't drink Starbucks, I wont pay their prices, I make my coffee. Now if it was options like black, cream and sugar, light and sweet, milk and sugar etc, I'd have some ground to stand on with this LMAO. I'm a light and sweet coffee girl.

I hear ya! DH got me an espresso machine for Christmas. Best gift ever! I've used that thing daily since I got it.
Definitely saved us money, I was buying iced double shots every morning at Starbucks!
