It has like condensed milk and brown sugar in it, I believe? It's one of the stall's regular coffees because they didn't have any seasonal drinks listed yet. So it's strong but sweet.
It sounds almost like Vietnamese coffee. That is made with canned milk and sugar. Would love to try it...

Lari Lari --Try using 2 packets if you have enough
I'd only grabbed two from the free sample bin, so I just added a spoonful of sugar to this one and it was better this time around. But I probably won't pay for them and by the next time I go to the exotic snack store, they'll have completely different things in the free sample bin.

Dark roast black w/breakfast and lunch. DH wanted to stop for an iced tea drink later this afternoon so I had a decaf Americano. I almost never have decaf but felt I didn't need anymore caffeine. Now I'm tired and wish I had changed my mind. :lol:

Two dark roast black coffees the past few days but definitely going out for an iced latte today since the weather is all sunshine and beautiful. 🌞

I bought these almond creamers at Jewel yesterday because they were on sale for $2.99 each so why not. Started with the cookies and cream. It's pretty decent, though I remember from my dairy free days this brand wasn't as sweet as some of the others.

I'm happy to say I got that iced latte Saturday. :thumbsup: Sunday I had too many coffee refills at the restaurant we went to for brunch.
Today two cups of dark roast black coffee.

also tried an americano coffee today again weak and watery😒
That's too bad. Americanos are made with espresso and steamed water so it should be strong not taste weak. Maybe try getting one somewhere else. :dunno:

Dark roast black this morning and I was in the mood for a Cortado this afternoon, (also made with espresso).

Combined two fresh ground Spanish coffee beans. One is a sugar roasted espresso bean ( not sweet). Drink it black.

I used my points to get a large mocha frozen coffee at Dunkin today because I only had one cup this morning that I had to take on the road to J's gymnastics class.

I got a cappuccino at the Jewel Starbucks yesterday. I feel like Starbucks drinks always disappoint me lately.

What a difference a day makes, it was bright and sunny yesterday but damp, rain and gloomy today. I had my dark roast black after breakfast but DH and I needed to get out so we went to our favorite coffee spot. He had his usual chai latte and I had my usual latte with oat milk and cinnamon on top. We should have each brought a book to read, maybe next time.
