BQOTD: What's Your Coffee Order?

Today's Burning Question of the Day: If someone were heading out to Starbucks/Caribou/whatever your favorite coffee place is, and were treating you to anything you wanted, what would you order today?

For me, it's either a non-fat caramel latte, or a non-fat peppermint latte, depending on my mood :)


  1. Oooh, coffee! If we're talking Starbucks, I usually get an iced caramel macchiato, size and fat content dependent on what else I've eaten that day. I also like to eat a slice of iced lemon pound cake with that. :)

    If we're going to one of the local places my order is usually different, because caramel latte =/= caramel macchiato. One of my favorite local indulgences is a Junior Mint - peppermint mocha breve (half&half instead of milk), with whipped cream and green sugar sprinkles. I usually get that iced, too.

  2. Iced, non-fat, upside-down caramel macchiato with extra caramel drizzle, please. I usually get the grande, but I get a tall if I've had a lot (or 'enough') to eat that day.

  3. PS, during the fall I get a pumpkin spice latte (nonfat, no whip) and during Christmas I get a peppermint white mocha, 1 pump each.


    I love me some coffee.

  4. Mine is embarrassingly complicated - grande lactose free no foam latte with one pump peppermint and one pump vanilla.

  5. I generally get a skinny vanilla latte or the skinny peppermint latte (especially around the holidays). I have recently fallen in LOVE with the new Coffee-mate Natural Bliss Sweet Cream creamer. At home I don't have to add anything other than that to my coffee and it is WONDERFUL!!!

    We have a great little coffee/wine bar in town and I generally skip the coffee and go for hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps and a dark chocolate crepe for good measure....makes me want one now ;)

  6. Skinny white mocha with whip. No matter where I order from :) and if I was going to SBUX I would most definitely be getting a piece of coffee cake to go with my coffee :)

  7. Ooooh!
    Summer = venti caramel frappacino w/skim, no whip but can I still have the caramel drizzle on there please?

    Winter= grande skim no whip mocha (or salted caramel mocha around the holidays)

  8. Depends on the season! I really love Pumpkin Spice Lattes in the fall, Peppermint Mochas (in moderation) at Christmas, and regular coffee until summer - then I love frappucinos, or iced coffee if I"m counting calories :)

  9. Skinny Mocha every single time!

  10. Mine is:
    venti iced soy chai tea latte with light ice! Took me forever to say that correct ;-)

  11. Yummy - Iced non-fat chia in the summer or coffee blank in the winter.

  12. Caribou for the win: Medium Northern Lite Turtle Mocha with Dark Chocolate, nonfat Whip and *Not so hot.

  13. I'm usually a skinny caramel macchiato type of girl during the winter, and for the summer, I absolutely love tall Americanos with two pumps of white mocha and a little bit of room (filled with nonfat milk). Ah-maze-ing, plus low in cal's (more water than milk) and only $2.11 at Starbucks (that's all we got here) if you have a registered card ('cuz the flavor is free). Love it.

  14. love this question!!
    mine is, ALWAYS:
    sugar-free hazelnut breve.

    funny story ... for the longest, one of my best girlfriends knew this and could pick up coffee for me without asking. but my hubby didn't! ha.

    he surprised me one time by knowing what to order for me, and ever since has known. go, hubby!

  15. Usually a Iced Venti two splenda green tea with no classic syrup.

    BUT, if I haven't had my coffee yet I will order a half decaf grande skinny vanilla latte.

    Starbucks fo' life ;)

  16. Peet's Coffee is the BEST ever! (better than Starbucks, hands down)
    I always order a non-fat mocha with no whipped cream. Yum!

  17. Right now? Venti, nonfat chai tea latte. If it were an order outside of Lent, then I'd order a Venti, skinny vanilla latte, no foam. :)

    Keep Shining,
