Starbucks nation. Starbucks is taking over the world. Who pays $3.57 for COFFEE? Blah blah. I know it. But I like lattes when it gets cold (especially Pumpkin Spice and Gingerbread) and I don't care.
If you are like me, you order your coffee and have to wait 30 minutes to drink it because it is FLAMING hot.
I discovered that if you order your drink NOT HOT or 120 (as in 120 degrees) it is perfectly drinkable right away. At Beaners (or Bigby as it is now called) you order it not hot, and at Starbucks you get it 120 (one twenty).
This was the most exciting discovery of the fall season for me if not in all of 2007. Side note: the REAL temperature of lattes is 180 degrees. Yikes.
