When people used to ask me if I liked coffee, my answer was always…

“I don’t like regular coffee, just mochas and lattes, and usually just once a week or less.”

Not so anymore.

I have now become a coffee addict and I blame several things for this…

1. It’s been cold here. Coffee is warm. And yummy.

2. I have found several recipes for making mochas and lattes at home, which makes them more accessible. And cheaper. Bad combo.

3. I recently discovered several creamers in very yummy flavors at the store – Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Apple, etc. Now I can actually use my coffee maker at home and have the mocha taste with just one pour – too easy.

4. A Caribou Coffee was just put inside a grocery store I drive by frequently. I love Caribou Coffee. But before, both Caribous in town were quite out of the way so the temptation was low. now it is high – very high. They even gave me a punch card. Darn you Caribou.

For the record, I usually only have decaf, so no caffeine addiction here.

Just coffee.

That’s right – my name is Erin, and I am a coffee addict.

Thank you for listening.

Have a nice day.
