Do you like to save money on coffee by making your own coffee at home, but it never seems to have that same gourmet coffee taste?
If there are two things I absolutely LOVE I would have to say the Fall season and a great cup of hot gourmet coffee! Fall is, by far, my favorite seasons!
Here in Michigan, we still get warmer weather until the end of October sprinkled with a little rain and sunshine! Things cool down a tad so we do not have 95 degree days with humidity – you should seriously see my hair on those days! Not to mention all the fun Fall activities, food, and – what this post is about – drinks!
One way to warm yourself up on those “Oh so chilly” mornings, is to pour yourself a nice, hot cup of coffee. It is like getting a warm hug on those chilly fall mornings. And let’s face it, if you have kids like me, you probably can’t function until you have finished cup two or three. (I swear I am trying to cut back.)
Yet, I am always looking for ways to save you money and I know I like to treat myself to a Starbucks or McCafe every now and then. However, if I kept up that spending habit my budget would go downhill, like a pumpkin rolling out of the patch.
So with you in mind, I have found some of the best copycat recipes on the web! Try them out this fall and keep your mornings full of love, peace, and hot coffee – we will save the iced coffee for summer.
