Family cup momentPosted: May 11, 2012
My husband and I did a lot of our early dating at Starbuck’s, other coffee places too, but mainly Starbuck’s. We would meet before work almost everyday and chat over a latte, now I know what a huge sacrifice that was for him, he’s NOT a morning person! Ah, the things you do for love.
A lot has changed since those early times but we still LOVE heading to a coffee shop, just not Starbuck’s. Now we choose a local place where they roast their own, it’s owned and operated by a couple of young business men who are behind the counter serving it up most days. My husband is sipping a cortado these days, I’ve switched mainly to soy chai and now we have children – so that’s different.
My husband, ever with his cup, the rest of us with our “for here’s”, we all split a muffin. Using the stainless spoon from our coffee friends I slice it up, I pack a bandana for a family napkin. All in all our waste is nominal and the moment is perfect.
