Raise your hand if you’re coffee obsessed like me? I feel like I’m actually TOO coffee obsessed. Lately I’ve been finding myself having 2 to 3 cups in a day. Probably not ideal, but it’s just the perfect accompaniment to sitting at a desk and working, right?

I feel like coffee is one of those things too that people feel really strongly about. Or care nothing about. For me, I feel strongly about my coffee. As in, I like it the way I like it. I have my favorite coffee shops in Atlanta. I have milks I like to use and creamers that I always have on hand. Today, I thought I’d share my go to orders and what I love to also keep on hand at home.

In addition, I now follow the Macrobarista on Instagram. He has so many crazy creations but I’m just kind of boring and stick to lattes or regular drip coffee. Here’s my go to.

My Go To Coffee Shop Order

Starbucks // Coconut Milk Latte

I used to be all about the soy latte, but recently switched to coconut milk. It has less sugar and carbs and I think it kind of tastes better! Apparently almond milk is the better choice at Starbucks, but I prefer the taste of coconut.

In the summer I usually do iced coffee or an iced latte and always ask for LIGHT ICE OMG. Why do they put so much damn ice in it? After 4 sips it’s all gone!

Local Coffee Shops // Iced Coffee, Lattes or Dirty Chai Lattes

Depending on the coffee shop and their milk selection, I’ll definitely switch things up. I find that local coffee shops tend to have better chai than Starbucks and I LOVE a good dirty chai latte. That’s a chai latte with a shot of espresso. So good!

My Go To At Home Coffee & Creamers

There’s nothing better than waking up and making a cup of coffee and turning on the Today Show. That’s usually how my mornings look. Then I head to my computer and get straight to work for the day. I’m almost always a Dunkin Donut’s coffee kinda gal. But over the holidays I picked up Trader Joe’s holiday blends and was obsessed. I regret not buying backup containers because they won’t be back for many many months!

In the summertime, I’m a sucker for Chameleon Cold Brew and have been known to make homemade simple syrups to add to it. You can see my mint simple syrup iced coffee and almost my cinnamon sugar one here!

Non Dairy Creamers

I started using Nut Pods and am OBSESSED. They’re ideal for TRIM Bootcamp when I’m intermittent fasting in the morning. Plus, they have no carbs or sugars in them but still have a decent amount of flavor. I still REALLY need that creaminess taht you can only get from half & half so I typically still add a small splash of Half & Half (lactose free) to my coffee for a good mix.

What’s your go to coffee order?

    I am coffee obsessed! It’s the first thing I look forward to when I wake up in the morning and you betcha I am downing cup after cup because well, I just love it that much! I normally do black coffee with a little bit of milk but if I am feeling fancy a latte or cappuccino at my local coffee shop is what I would get. Love your sweatshirt!

      I always forget about a cappuccino! They’re the perfect amount of milk to espresso ratio!

    I sadly do not like coffee. Crazy, I know. I just always say I haven’t matured enough to like it yet haha. Hopefully one day! Love this sweatshirt though!
