Make Your Own Coffee!

This Sparked Me!

Rather than buying from the coffee shop, make your own coffee at home and add flavored creamers. Or buy a milk frother and coffee syrups to make your own lattes and cappucinos. Invest in a great travel mug and you are good to go! Yummy and money saving!

MORE INFORMATION:
Milk Frothers are small immersion style blenders. You can find them on amazon.com for around $10. Simply warm milk in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Use the frother to get some great foam, add brewed coffee and any assortment of coffee syrups (vanilla, hazelnut, chocolate syrup, etc)!

    I never realized how much I was spending until I used a gift card for a coffee chain and it was gone in like 5 days after that I for the most part stopped buying coffee out unless I am desparate which has been quite rare. I love my Keurig Coffee Maker!

    I also started making my own coffee...I am trying to cut down on Caffeine as well so when at home it is decaf and then if I treat myself to a Starbucks I get a treat. Making my own coffee at home has helped with the calories too!
