The Husband chose this blue coffee mug with a snowflake on the side.
I chose this green one with a skate.
When we bought the coffee mugs, we got a free Starbucks espresso cup.
We bought a pack of Starbucks Christmas Blend and a bottle of Hazelnut syrup. I've always been curious how their Christmas Blend tasted so finally I had a taste of it.
The Starbucks Christmas Blend is made from aged Sumatran beans roasted the way Starbucks does just once a year. The spicy, cedary, deep and syrupy flavour of Sumatran beans are combined with the earthy beans from Asia/Pacific and lively coffees from Latin America.
The lovely aroma filled our home on the first morning that we tried it. The rich, earthy flavour filled us with warmth on a cool morning.
To make the Christmas Blend coffee more special, I made a Hazelnut Latte out of it. Two shots of espresso using the Christmas Blend, one to two tablespoons of Hazelnut syrup and hot milk and voila! Homemade Hazelnut Latte! :)
I plan to buy one or two more packs of the Christmas Blend so my Husband and I will have Christmas-y mornings even on ordinary days.
