My phone made it! It took a long nap in my car in the sun yesterday and after that it worked just like it was before. Perfection.
I wish I could have put it in the microwave to heat the water up to get it steamed out, but you know, microwaves and metal don't go hand in hand. They go hand in fire. And I didn't feel like melting anything.
I have to post about something that I find very important in a single persons life: instant coffee. Just listen.
Back to coffee. I think that a mini coffee pot would not only be adorable but great; however scooping brewing, cleaning and all the work involved for a pot of coffee isn't really worth the work for one cup. Why do you think people pay 4 bucks for one cup in the morning? Morning equals lazy, even if you're a morning person. I'm a morning person and although I wake up bright eyed and bushy tailed I still don't feel like brewing and cleaning a pot of coffee just for one or even two cups.
That, my lovelies, is where instant coffee comes in. My mother bought me Folgers coffee bags (like a tea bag, only coffee; you steep it in hot water, dunk a few times and drink) a while back and I actually like them a lot. They are really easy, and they taste pretty good too. You can make them as strong or as weak as you want.
But since I've recently hit up a Starbucks for some pumpkin spice chai tea latte goodness (yumm, oh em gee, so good) I decided to pick up their new Via (do not buy it from Amazon, it's less than $10 if you buy it from Starbucks and there is no shipping) and now I'm in total love! It's very strong (well, for me) and super delicious. Plus I got a dollar fifty off the drink I purchased too. Can't argue with that.
My sister used to work at Starbucks but since shes a big kid now with her teacher degree and everything I can't get the free stuff... which is crap. But, I'll settle for this. It's great and I can make it in my office with no percolator or filters or mess whatsoever.
Via is vantastic! Okay, I'm done.
