Depending on where you are located in the world – for some its morning time, which usually spells – breakfast. Sure you can prepare your traditional eggs and waffles to get your mind going, but what about the mornings where you just need a little boost from caffeine? You may take your coffee strong and like it dark with no sugar and no cream, but have you ever thought about kicking your morning Joe up a bit? If so – try a mocha coffee or if you prefer it cold, try a caramel iced coffee. Both pack a similar caffeine punch but also deliver a bit of sweetness that make the drink feel like a morning or afternoon treat. Both recipes are courtesy of Coffee Recipes, a free resource for how to make the wide variety of blends found in coffee shops from the comfort of your own home…definitely worth a visit!
