As you may have read in Sunday’s Post, I have recently discovered my true passion for coffee. Before that, I knew I loved coffee ice cream. Mmm, so good. Anyways, I had never really tried coffee frappuccinos or cappuccinos or any of those fancy, complicated sounding drinks. I felt my time had come.They really shouldn’t call frappuccinos, frappuccinos. Please. They sound so fancy and so impossible to make that you must pay your life’s earnings to buy one at the coffee shop. They should be called like cold coffee with milk or something. Maybe, I’m just too logical. That must be it!
Well, anyways I made a frappuccino all by myself for the first time and I made coffee for the first time! (I also thought coffee would be super complicated to make too, yep, I’m clueless) Thanks to these wonderful directions, making the coffee was a breeze! And thank goodness, so was the frappuccino.
