I hadn't wanted to invest in one because I kept giving up coffee. But, then I'd do tea, then chai, then chai latte, then I would actually start dreaming about coffee (who does this??), so then an occasional decaf latte followed aaaaaand now I'm back on the juice: grande nonfat mocha.
So, I shopped around - this is thebest website for reviews - and my cafe bistro (it's actually called that - don't you want to just hold it?) arrived last week. Since that time, my friends, I have been a foaming fool. I do peppermint mochas, I do vanilla lattes, I do chai lattes. I even did an iced mocha for Vi, which she loved and she is hard core (her site is called 'the green straw' for God's sake).
So, every morning is a delight now. Not only am I saving about $200 a month on not going to Starbucks, but I get to call out my name when I put my coffee on the counter. And that's just fun.
p.s.- By the way, the title of this post makes me laugh because I had DD's when I was 11. But, that's another post.
