    Starbucks Fund by TicklingCancer

    Nothing better than a good cup of coffee in the morning. Even through chemo, I couldn't wait to have a good cup of coffee. I've gone to Starbucks for years. I usually get a grande dark roast. Recently I discovered the Cafe Americano. O-M-G....Where have you been my whole life?? The first drink made my toes curl!!! Needless to say, I hooked. Do you have a favorite Starbucks drink?

      We don't have Starbucks out here in the sticks where I live. I have "GregBucks" my Bunn Coffee maker and some Nestle's French Vanilla creamer. I make my own.....speaking of this, my cup's empty.

      OK, I'm back. The closest we have to that around here is the convenience stores have those cappuccino machines that you stick your cup under. I like those in funky flavors.

      Greg, we need to find you a Starbucks. Looks like there is one in Jackson. How far is that from you? A Cafe Americano will change your religion. It's doesn't cure cancer but it makes the whole process a little easier. Not to mention the fact that everyone needs a good toe curling from time to time.

      70 miles, too far for a morning stop by.

      I do not drink coffee and I am not a fan of Starbuks, sorry. I do enjoy a Dunkin Donuts Iced tea though.

      Starbucks is not my favorite (my home ground, fresh brew RULES), but I will stop by. Always go for the basic black coffee.

      I've been a coffee addict for years. Tried to stop once (was told it was staining my teeth). Lasted three years and hated every minute of it. Started drinking it again and just brush more often.

      Someone just said "Hey, if you run to Starbucks I'll buy you something" What was I supposed to do? So after spending about 3.2 seconds thinking about it, I agreed to make the run to Starbucks. Toes just curled again....

      I'm hooked on the Starbucks. I usually drink the cafe mochas when I am at the airports and buy the dark roast grounds at the store because I live out in the sticks. Not a dunkin donuts fan, tried it but just tasted to weak. I will definitely try the Cafe Americano next week:)

      Hogfan, sounds like you enjoy strong coffee. The Cafe Americano is right up your alley. In the Grande, there are 3 expresso shots which they top off with hot water. It is FANTASTIC!!!!

      Well I am a coffee lover but never Star Bucks. I have always like the "blond" roast which they only recently started doing. But, I don't have one close by either. What I do have is a Senseo coffee maker use it with Melita fresh gound or Dallmayr fresh ground coffee the crème D'ore type.
      Its fantastic with a white form top with every cup. I use pure honey, fat free cream and a touch of cinnamon.
      Stopped cold turkey when I was Dx'd just took it up again recently. Love coffee.

      I like coffee a lot. When I am ill I do not like coffee. I should have known something was up when before dx. I did not want coffee. As treatment progressed I could take a sip of coffee. Now that tx is over, I almost crave coffee with Starbucks at the top of the list. I don't tolerate the acid in many of the commercial store brands. Usually it is Pike Roast. At home it is Victor Allen blended with Starbucks french roast. Next is our local coffee shop that features Manitowoc blend coffee. And a splash of cream. I want some NOW!

      I love their Iced Decaf Caramel Macchiato (stuck with decaf because of a sensitive stomach), though I can tolerate the bottled Vanilla Frapuccino (lower in calories than the ones they make in the store...;))

      Like Greg, I live in the sticks with no Starbucks to be found. When I lived in CA a few years ago, I was hooked. I still dream of Marble Mocha Machiatos. When I really miss it, I just think of all the money I've saved NOT buying that coffee every day!

      I cannot stand the taste of coffee but I love vanilla flavors. I recently discovered Starbucks' vanilla powder (up at the sugar/milk station) so I've been getting an iced tea and dumping a whole bunch of vanilla powder in it! Love it : )

      speaking of creams..a low fat desert is taking some frozen yogurt and using one of the flavored creams in the little cups to pour on top or get creative with it as its only 20-30 calories but it has a lot of flavor.

      Not a fan of coffee, but I love my fresh squeezed strawberry lemonade! Yum! However I am going to admit....I tried the caramel mocha frapuccino a couple of times and that was yummy. Sugar and caffeine high! :)

      My drink is a misto, AKA cafe au lait. It is about a third steamed milk and the rest is coffee and then there is a dollop of foam on top. I do decaf (too much caffeine makes my breasts hurt.)
