When I was a "single" girl and lived above the Adams Morgan Starbucks, I would roll out of bed, put on something appropriate for outdoors, and go downstairs for my cup of coffee. At that time, my preference was a grande black. I would hand over $2, grab my coffee, and go back upstairs to prepare for my long commute out of the city. An easy routine but not quite as nice as the one I have today.
When I was in Egypt last, I picked up the latte habit. My sister would make a small pot of coffee in the morning, but I was used to the mega caffeine intake and started walking around the corner to Green Mill for my early morning cup. Not familiar with the proper way to order a grande black in Egypt, I went with the latte option and found them pseudo healthy with all that calcium, protein, and milk.
I make my coffee at home now and splurge occasionally on a Starbucks latte but in the big picture I'm settling down. The image above is from an illustration blog I found online ... probably when I was surfing the Web early in the morning.
