1) Thank you for your feedback on your coffee drinking habits. Very helpful, and appreciated.
2) I was going to respond to your comments as they came in, but again, I was away from my computer for most of the week. Since you all took the time to answer my questions, I would like to respond to your comments. Bear with me...and skip down to see the winner if you don't want to read all this.
Patty: Bialetti stove top espresso maker...I think I need to check that one out.I agree, coffee is comforting : )
Ntdolphin: I wish I liked decaf coffee, maybe one day I will convert. : )
Brigid: What a funny name...just kidding : ) At least your name isn't "Dagny in the garden". Iced chai tea latte, I think I need to try that one out...sounds delish
Wilde in the Kitchen: Sorry to hear you don't like coffee, you are missing out : ) It is fabulous. I come from a large family and 1/2 of them don't like coffee, so you are not alone in your dislike
Aldebaran: Yes, I have been to Caribou Coffee, can't remember if I liked it or not.
Miriel: Pretty sure Grad students would die without their coffee fixes. Extra shot would kill me if I tried it!
Jens: Thank you! Ironically most of my cookie recipes are in the metric system, I just convert them over because most American cooks are foreign to that idea. Maybe one day we will switch over, dreams do come true don't they? : )
Hilary: School got me hooked on heavy cream as well, darn school and all those extra calories and fat we "had" to consume in order to graduate
Laura: "Dirt Cowboy Cafe" and not in Texas, are you sure about that : )
Branwen: I am with you on the Mochas...we should be friends, pretty sure we would get along since we drink coffee the same way. : )
Salome Ellen: Great minds think alike, must run in your family : )
Torie: Strong coffee is good, you would like Southern Coffee...it is wicked strong!
Maggie: Iced coffee is the best when I can't afford a Mocha!!
Paisley's Pixels: French Press is such a stylish way to make coffee!
Charissa: Sugar in the raw is what I use too, I like the crunchy sugar in my iced coffees.
Ann: Umm, "Fat B" coffee maker...totally don't remember, my memory is already failing me : ) One day I will have to visit your home town and drink some hard core coffee!
Mimi: Lazy as usual : )
Marie: So glad you like coffee, really I hold you responsible for getting me hooked on it. Mocha is a way of life for you : )
Wannabeacook: Thanks, so glad you like my blog!
Kdawg: Predictable, really it is true.
