I don't know about anyone else, but caffeinated "add an extra shot" coffee, is a staple of my diet.
One of the luxury items I've turned down a notch on was my cup of Joe at the local coffee shop. I sat down one day and estimated I spent $80-$100 a month on my addiction. I refuse, or cannot, live without my coffee.
One day I learned to program the coffee maker and started brewing my own. Yeah, it's not as pretty as the cup of coffee the Barista would hand over to me (usually with a smile) in the white paper cup with the "don't burn yourself" brown cup sleeve.
I recently ran across these. They're made by Copco and they're BPA-free. I've decided my coffee would be kicked up a notch. Don't get me wrong, I haven't completely stopped visiting the local Barista. If I could do my little part to save some cash and save the planet, why not?
They even make one for my iced non-fat latte with an add shot. Which I must add has turned into home brew over ice. If I actually went grocery shopping, I may add some flavored creamer.
The insulated cups even come in different colors. How cute is the pink sleeve? Now I'm on a mission.
