I'm been limiting my Cafe Mocha so it wouldn't run out too quickly, but I just placed another Amazon order, including 2 more Cafe Mochas, and since the order is supposed to be delivered by June 10th, I can now enjoy a cup when I crave one. ☕

I've always been obsessed with cinnamon. If you haven't tried this one, I recommend it highly. It's so much better than what you find in the grocery store. Vietnamese Cinnamon - 3 oz.

Check out the reviews!

I get my spices from Penzy’s. I know Winchester Winchester does also. They are pricey, but the best quality I have found.

I am fortunate that there is a store, about 15 miles from my apartment. It is amazing in there.

not sure what they will be doing now; but they had sample of all the spices, so you could sniff them. It was amazing.
Lots of spice blends, with or without salt.

You can get them on line also
Penzys.com. I think is the email address.

This morning I had Upouria Sweet French Vanilla Cappuccino from ebay in warm Great Value unsweetened Almond Milk from Walmart, added 2 Tsp instant Folgers Coffee.

I never did find Sunoco's supplier of cappuccino. I basically tried them all, but no dice. 😭 Maybe they just mix it a different way.

Deliveries are so strange these days. I placed an order with Amazon on Jun 2 with delivery by Jun 10. Then they sent me a "delay" notice. However, it was delivered on Jun 7th, 3 days early. And on a Sunday! :dizzy:

Good news is I have 2 more containers of my Cafe Mocha,so any coolish days this summer, I'll be all set. ☕

I got my loose tea delivery yesterday from a tea shop in Portage, Michigan: Cream Earl Grey, John and Jack, Monk’s Blend, Creme Brûlée, and Chamomile. We used to go there when we lived nearby. They have two walls of tea canisters, and I loved being able to taste and smell samples. I miss that! Now that we live across the country, I have it shipped.

Coffee! Always black, and the stronger the better. Espresso last thing at night is perfectly normal. I can’t remember the name for it, but my preferred way of drinking it is with the tiniest teaspoon of foam on top. Like a very, very VERY dry macchiato, but there’s a specific name for it in Northern Italy that I can’t remember right now.

If coffee isn’t available then I’d go for green tea. Anything hot without milk!

As for my mug, I’m sure most of you will appreciate this one! :lol:

My apologies if either of what I'm about to suggest has already been discussed.

Now that it is definitely summer type weather I have a jar of water and tea bags outside, steeping in the sun. Refrigerate when sufficiently dark. Great way to make tea that does not get cloudy when iced.

For iced coffee, I like to freeze some coffee in an ice cube tray. No more diluting coffee with water!

You must be my soul sister! :thumbsup: I love strong black coffee and discovered a new local roaster that has named their dark roast, Danger Zone. Regarding the espresso with a bit of foam, are you thinking of a Ristretto?

I got my pea milk. It's really good. I had that with my french vanilla cappuccino. It was expensive, so probably won't buy it again. But it was fun to try once. :thumbsup:

I found a quart of oat milk Creamer! Since I only use milk for tea, a tiny bit for oatmeal and when I have the occasional coffee, I thought I would try it. I think I will open it up, over the week end; when the almond milk is finished.

I also have shelf stable coconut milk and rice milk... wonder how those will taste? Have a container of shelf stable organic almond milk, just in case.

Danger Zone sounds right up my street! I had to do some googling to find the name, and they call it a Capo in Italy, but only in Trieste! My dad and his girlfriend moved there which is why I know it. It’s served in a shot glass and looks like a baby cappuccino, but there’s no milk in the coffee itself. The tiny dab of foam on top just takes the edge off the espresso! Gosh I’m picky... :lol:

I love that cat mug, I want it! I love strong dark roast too. I ordered some Sumatra.

Today was Upouria Sweet French Vanilla Cappuccino in warm almond milk, with a pinch of cinnamon.
The mug was a gift. Funnily enough, all the mugs I’ve been gifted have cats on, can’t think why! 🤣
That cappuccino sounds positively dreamy 😍

I want to try Oat Milk, Macadamia Milk, and Cashew Milk next. This sure is fun sampling these different milks, isn't it? :thumbsup:

This morning was Upouria Sweet French Vanilla Cappuccino powder in warm sweetened Silk Vanilla Almond Milk with extra Folgers instant coffee added.
