Coffee Shop Orders

Post by Kendra Givens » Mon Jul 15, 2019 7:38 pm

In conversation today, people started talking about cookies and chai lattes and it made me wish I was instantly in a cafe or coffee shop to order some for myself. Then we started talking about our favorite cookies and everyone was hungry! If you were at the coffee shop yourself, what would you order? Do you order the same thing every time, or does your order depend on what you're in the mood for that day? This isn't just about coffee either - tea, smoothies, lemonades, whatever your go-to order would be!

My order typically depends on the day, but I do typically prefer iced drinks, even in winter. I like a good cold brew, iced vanilla coffee, or iced chai latte. The later two are also delightful hot.

I like to try the seasonal beverages as much as possible, but sometimes I just want my regular drink, a white chocolate mocha. I usually go to Starbucks and they have a really great fruity lemonade there that I'll get sometimes. Normally though, I stick to my usual. It doesn't matter what the temperature is, unless I'm in the mood for hot chocolate, I'll be getting an iced beverage. It just seems like they're... sweeter or something and I don't like hot beverages in general. :lol:

My order at Tim Horton's is usually the same - coffee with one cream, but usually during the summer I'd order an iced cappuccino. If I'm feeling a bit peckish (which is most of the time), I get a Boston Cream donut! ^_^

Usually I prefer my coffee with dark chocolate and something sweet added like whipped cream - I know of a few coffee places where you can order your mochas by cacao percentage in their chocolate and those tend to be delicious!

I don't really have a coffee order that I always go by. I like mint hot chocolates every so often (with whipped cream, of course). Other than that I prefer iced beverages. An iced green tea with one splenda is one of my favorites, as is a passion tango iced tea with no sweetener (Starbucks). An iced chai latte is also super yummy! In terms of actual coffee, I usually get a plain coffee, with one pump of vanilla and some almond milk (iced).

I used to go to Starbucks WAAAAAAY too much. My go-to order was a Matcha iced latte, light ice, soy milk with an everything bagel, warmed, with cream cheese.

I also really enjoyed Matcha frappucinos, seasonal frappucinos and basically anything with whipped cream. It's my 2nd favorite food :lol:

I actually don't drink coffee (caffeine makes my anxiety go insane). But even so, I don't order drinks from Starbucks and such anyways!

Though I do enjoy tea a lot. Well, its herbal/fruit tea so TECHNICALLY not tea, buut.. My favorite is either Peach or Chamomile with Lemongrass, Lavender, and Honey. They also generally have a few other things mixed in like orange peels and such.

Otherwise, I tend to drink sparkling water like Peach, Strawberry Lemonade, and Apple.

There used to be a lovely tea shop a short drive away from me. My favorite tea there was one that would be this amazing blue color and then turn pink/purple when you added lemon to it. It was delightful! The cafe also did the most scrumptious sandwiches and soups.

Breve. No foam.

That's usually my coffee beverage of choice. :)

I generally get an iced triple espresso with heavy cream and two splendas.... I'm that person :lol: but, it's cheaper than ordering a latte! Sometimes I also enjoy a good cold brew with a splash of heavy cream...

At Starbucks, my most-often ordered drink is a peppermint mocha. I am one of those that as soon as they hit stores, I will switch to pumpkin spice lattes. So yummy! Sometimes I switch things up with a blended frappuccino, generally carmel. At Panera, their regular hazelnut blend is amazing. At Joe Muggs, anything involving chocolate because they use Ghiradelli, and it's fabulous. Anywhere else, the best cream is just regular half and half. Flavored creams with all that nasty corn syrup are nasty. Obviously, I am very particular about my coffee. :)
