I love coffee, duh, we all love coffee right? Okay wrong my husband doesn't like coffee but you know what I say? Teach him how to make me coffee and then there is really more for me. :)
I love hot coffee in the morning and recently switched over to the Nespresso system after enjoying my snobby vintage La Pavoni manual press for years. Truthfully the Nespresso system is just so darn easy and SO yummy and I have been super happy with it thus far although it isn't exactly cheap at sixty cents per pod but I really love coffee, like I said and so I am willing to pay for the good stuff.
In the afternoon I like an iced shot over soy or almond milk but lately I have gone with the "dirty chai" instead. Its a little sweet and spicy and perfect for this ho hum time of year. Have you ever tried a dirty chai latte? It's basically a chai tea latte with a shot...making it, dirty. I say it makes it extra yum and um...lots more caffeine to get me through the crazy 4-6 o'clock hour...OK lets face it the entire rest of the evening including the bedtime routine. Phew I am exhausted just thinking about that!
To make a dirty chai latte simply fill your glass (or jar :)) with ice, add roughly 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup of chai tea concentrate and about 1/3 cup of whatever milk you prefer. Then get all crazy with a shot of coffee...mm I think I might just make one for myself next.
Hope you are enjoying this Tuesday afternoon...good luck to those of you heading into the "witching hour" :)!
