Do you Mocha?
One of my daughters works at a coffee/espresso cafe (one of literally hundreds in our community of 250,000). She had a customer come in and order a grande egg nog latte with an extra shot. This little (20 oz) cup of hot egg nog cost $6!!!! She said this customer comes in nearly every day and gets her fancy coffees.
I'm just boggled at what I see! These mochas (which are nothing more than 8-16 oz of hot milk) range from $2.25-$4.95 all over town. And I see a cup in the hands of 3 out of 5 people! Gosh, maybe I'm in the wrong business?
I like to make up a pot of fresh ground beans in the morning before going to work, and I have a cup warmer at my desk, so I can get my fix all day. I figure I've saved over $100/mo doing that, compared to going to the coffee cart outside my office. When I do feel a treat, I go visit my daughter, who comps me a freebie (she's entitled to all the coffe she wants while at work, so she gives me her daily cup.)
Anyone else with MochaMadness where you live?
