I was casually browsing through Jennie's posts where I stumbled upon this one!  I think this is quite fun (and we have just a few similar answers.)

If you choose to do this, leave a comment linking back to your blog post!  I'm so ready for autumn and pumpkin spice goodness.  There's a vegan cafe 20 minutes away from my house that now has an organic pumpkin spice latte.  I bet it will be so much better than Starbucks (yes, I did have one today on 'opening' day.) xx


coffee, coffee, coffee!

"Coffee, coffee, coffee is a saying, like an exaggeration. It's a funny, desperate cry for caffeine. It's just my thing cause everybody knows I drink a lot of coffee, so the day can't start until I've had my morning jolt. It's a bit, my bit." - Lorelai Gilmore (Season 5 of Gilmore Girls)

Have you ever watched an episode of Gilmore Girls?  Oh, please say yes.  If you haven't, that's such figwittage!  I wonder if me quoting me à la 'figwittage' is silly?  A little bit, yes.  I love this tv programme!  It's genius and incredibly witty.  I hate that it ended, I wanted a season 8; as did so many Gilmore Girl fans.  I'm getting off track.

Lorelai is a coffee addict, it's really the caffeine; but soda and energy drinks can cure the addiction.  Lorelai loves coffee.  I wouldn't put myself in that 'addiction' class, but I do love coffee.  I'm not talking Starbucks (sometimes I call it Starsucks) because I find it to be way too bitter for my liking.  I love coffee from smaller companies and cafe's and prefer giving them my money.  Back in my home state (Wisco), in the city of Milwaukee; brews some delicious coffee known as ALTERRA.  In my home town, is the Weather Center Cafe who just so happens to brew ALTERRA coffee!  Yum!  I love their house blend, Weather Center blend.  It's the bomb diggity, soooooo good!  I just ran out of it.  Totally bummed.  

I wish this was still available!

Fret not, my fellow figs!  I do have some other home town coffee, Field to Fork Summer blend that is also quite tasty.  I need to email my mum and ask her to pretty please send me more coffee.  I love supporting my locals!  I know a lot of tea drinkers!  Tea is good too, I should drink more tea.  Jem at Beautiful Clutter recently wrote about Rose Bud tea.  What the what?!  Doesn't that sound delicious?  I just Googled around and found a website that sells dried roses to mix with Black tea.  I don't even know if I like Black tea.  I'll need a recipe for this.  

My favourite tea is an iced SPORTea in the morning.  SO good!  

Do you like coffee?  Do you like tea?  It doesn't matter to me ;)  Tell me your favourites!
