What is it about takeout coffee cups? For me, the coffee just tastes better in a paper cup with a plastic lid. Am I brainwashed by the extra expense to buy a coffee as opposed to making my own? No! I even prefer my own coffee in a takeout cup.
My coffee tastes better than one I can buy. During the pandemic I have evolved into a coffee-ista. Is there any easier way to pamper myself than making a delicious cup of coffee?
It also appeals to my frugal side. A dollar for an espresso vs what I would pay at a storefront. So much less!
I’ll admit that I may have gone overboard in my coffee prep area. This is…
- An Illy machine
- A Nespresso machine
- A Braun multiple-size/coffee prep machine
- A hand-held frother
- A pitcher size heater/frother
Choices are the spice of life!
But back to the takeout coffee cups.
I reuse them often at home, just rinsing out between servings.
I can’t figure out the answer as to why I enjoy drinking out of them so much.
Let me go make a cup of coffee to ponder this…………(and guess what I’ll be drinking it from?!)
