    One of our baristas has started blending cold brew into a proper frappe. They're so much tastier than frappuccinos, as a coffee drinker.

    Six shots of espresso, use half and half instead of milk and 70% cocoa instead of the regular mocha mix (Starbucks used to carry it but I don't think they have it anymore, that's why I go to my local coffee hut).
    Alaska has independent coffee places all over place where you can drive up and get the coffee of your choice (sometimes served by girls in bikinis - no small thing in the middle of the winter).

    Way better than frapp roast. Try one with cold brew, heavy cream, and cream base. Add a flavor if you like.

    It's not just coffee but kind of like a caffeine apothecary, infinite diversity in infinite combinations (Vulcan IDIC).

    I've come to like medium roast with two sugars and a splash of French vanilla or Irish creamer.

    If I'm at Starbucks, I'm totally addicted to Vanilla lattes with three extra pumps of vanilla.

    Anybody have experience with a traditional Irish coffee? Probably going to be making one next week.
    EDIT: Jameson or Jameson Black Barrel? Hmm..

    The Jameson is a good choice or if you like a nice single malt Bushmills 10 year is pretty good.
    Do 1 and 1/4 ounce of booze to six ounces of good coffee (french press, dark roast is good).
    Hand whip some heavy cream so that it has a nice density.
    Put the whiskey in the glass first.
    Mix a tablespoon of brown sugar in the coffee before you add it to the whisky, then lay a nice big spoonful of heavy cream on top of the coffee.

    I like me a Flat White. or 2 shots of R Espresso (con pana if I'm feeling fancy af). I used to drink the Hazelnut Macchiato, but when they got rid of it and I had to go with caramel, it didn't really do it for me.

    I get mine without cream or half and half, just the iced coffee and white mocha.

    The white mocha is thick so make sure to stir it with your straw, or better yet, ask if you could have it shaken.

    I am definitely not a coffee snob. I use to have a 10 cup brewer, mr coffee, I think. I would reheat the coffee in the microwave later on or the next morning. Now I have a Keurig. I do love my Starbucks frappes and the ice teas. Once in a while I get hot coffee. I need to broaden my horizons, lol
