How-To: Pick A Coffee That Suits Your Mood

For all you coffee lovers out there, ordering a drink can be fun! Whether you’re studying, cold, or laying outside in the sun, your coffee should compliment your mood. Go through the list below and try out a new drink, one you might not have known about before, the next time you are in your local Starbucks

Library Crunch Time. Studying can be stressful and take a toll on your brain. A trip to Starbucks before a long night at the library can be assumed as a sure way to stay focused, so it’s important to pick the right coffee. For a caffeine jolt order a Red Eye, this is a regular coffee with a much needed shot of espresso.  If one shot of espresso is not enough you can try a Black Eye, which contains two shots or espresso; or if you’re in for a long night grab a Green Eye with three shots! If you need more flavor with your coffee, order a macchiato with delicious syrup. The espresso is put on the top of a macchiato so you receive the caffeine right from the start.

Snow Storms. Once winter hits a coffee from Starbucks can serve the purpose of keeping you toasty and warm in the cold weather. If you’re looking for warmth but still want some flavor with your drink a Caffé Misto is a great option. A Caffé Misto has more coffee then a latte, but still has the yummy foam on the top. You can pair a Caffé Misto with any syrup, and in the winter Cinnamon Dolce, Toffee Nut, and Peppermint are definite favorites. Starbucks also does a great job of catering menu items to fit the season, such as the Pumpkin Spice latte in the fall, and Peppermint Mocha in the winter. These seasonal hot coffees are sure to put you in a great mood!

Sun and Lounging. Coffee isn’t strictly for cold weather, which is great news for the coffee addicts. In the summer or occasional warm days of fall you can still stop by Starbucks and pick something up. Iced coffees are a must, along with the sweet syrup and milk to create an incredible drink. If you miss the foam in hot drinks, an Iced Cappuccino comes with the foam but is still refreshing.

So next time you are craving some caffeine get a drink that will satisfy your needs. A Blissful Belle should always have her great flavored coffee in hand.
