Before I became the educated coffee connoisseur that I am today I was clueless going into coffee shops. I remember I went to Starbucks and ordered a mocha frappuccino thinking it was coffee (frappuccinos are sugar not coffee!!). To make matters worse I ordered the same thing at Bean Scene Cafe and they brought me a hot drink. They were correct in bringing me the hot drink but I was so confused. I got to the point where if I ever needed a pick me up I’d just go to 7/11 and make my life simple. Thankfully those days are far behind me.
