I enjoy coffee (and tea!). I especially enjoy flavored lattes (my favorites are caramel, and Starbucks' maple macchiato, which is sadly only available during the winter holiday season). However, I usually do not indulge in fancy coffee as it is more expensive and less healthy. When I do partake, it tends to be a special treat. Today, I had a plain latte with skim milk at a local coffee shop. The occasion? The first official NaNoWriMo 2007 write-in, of course! And I have to say, this was the prettiest latte I have seen in quite some time. It wasn't all that tasty (I've never tried the non-flavored variety and was curious), but it sure looked nice and packed a strong caffeine-laden punch that I continued to feel long afterward. I'm still not sure if that's a good thing.
