*Giveaway* Are you a coffee snob like me?

I love my morning coffee, it's a total ritual for me.

I'm not just gonna drink any coffee though, and I absolutely refuse to drink the sludge they make in my office. I will not drink Dunkin Donuts regular coffee, I think it's absolutely vile.  Milk and sugar please.  My mom drank Tasters Choice coffee, 2 spoonfuls to her cup of microwaved water.. with milk & no sugar.. Yuck... my dad didn't drink Coffee, he was a tea with sugar & milk kinda guy.. I like my tea like that too.

But I'm kind of a snob when it comes down to my morning coffee, I love to have a Latte in the morning and I have thankfully managed to break my Dunkin Donuts Latte habit and cut down my getting cappuccino at my beloved Rosie's bakery to just once in a while instead of 2-3 times a week. I buy 1 can of Lavazza Espresso for around $6.99 and it lasts me 2 weeks or so and it's totally worth it. Seriously.. the lack of funds for coffee can be a total bummer but if you can manage an awesome latte on your own, then that new pair of shoes or purse is that much easier to attain ;)  Sure I'll grab a cup of coffee at the deli once in a while and I will have coffee if you invite me to your house.. but I won't drink anything that's been sitting around for God knows how long... yuck.

Before the bestie left on her adventure she gave me a little tool to whip up my lattes.. and I love it and I use it every day.. but it's lacking the real frothing power I need to make a seriously good latte.. and since the frother on my espresso machine decided it doesn't want to work anymore I needed to upgrade to something a little more powerful. (By the way, anyone want me to test an espresso machine?  Just let me know.. I'm in the market for a new one)

So, I did what any sweet blogger like me would do.. I bought myself a new BonJour Cafe Latte Frother from CSN Stores and I bought one to share with one of you lovely readers too!  This thing packs a super strong motor and whips up milk in seconds!  It uses 4AA batteries that aren't included in the package, but I'm nice enough to throw in a pack for ya so you can get to using it right away.
This battery-operated frother whips milk into thick foam in seconds for creating a latte, cappuccino, or macchiato. It's also handy for sauces, hot chocolate, foamy cocktails, and even scrambles eggs. The soft-touch push down button and chrome stand make this easy to use and store. Powered by 4 "AA" batteries (not included).

Now, since I hate bloggy contests that want you to post the contest 37 times on twitter with a hashtag, subscribe to the reader, follow on facebook and add a video of yourself licking your elbow (which you all know is impossible) so.. all you have to do here is.. say hi.and tell me how you like your coffee or what your favorite coffee joint is (and I'm not talking starbucks here either.. there's a wicked little place on my way to work called Witch's brew that has the most amazing selection of coffee's and teas with really odd hours, but a really cool atmosphere). Also, if you like to add a little flavor to your coffee with Coffee-Mate let me know what your favorite flavor is and if you're the winner you'll get a little extra something special in your package too!

Y'all have a week to comment and then on Wednesday Feb 2nd I'll choose a winner using that handy dandy random number generator.

That's all there is to it :)

Looking forward to great comments from you guys!


I just had to add this... my morning coffee today just milk, whipped up with the Cafe Latte Frother.  Yum yum yum!

Thanks so much for the giveaway! I love cafe lattes and I love all sorts of flavors (pecan, vanilla, hazelnut, irish cream, etc.) Yes, I'm becoming a coffee snob. I can't believe I used to drink the instant stuff!

I drink my coffee black. Sometimes with a little cream (no sweetener). so I always want great coffee.

My favorite coffee place? A local joint called Penny Lane. Amazing!

i did not start drinking coffee until i was 34 years old. my little one didn't sleep for the better part of 2 years and it was time for drastic measures. now i will drink whatever i can get however i can get it, preferably with milk and 2 equal in a big honking cup.

coffee shops don't last long around here, people seem to want the chains. there's a shop i love to visit when i see my parents, it's called The Beanery in branford, CT, and their tagline is "I've BEAN there." they've got some amazing loose teas as well as java.

Hi HAsh! I take my coffee black and I haven't found my favorite joint yet. Though some of the French bakeries in Key West and New Orleans were prety fantastic. Good strong coffee and hot fresh croissants. I would be 1000 lbs if I live next to one.

Thanks for the giveaway! I don't much like brewed coffee, but when I do have it I have to have cream or half and half (not milk) in it, and I don't like sugar in at all, although I have a major sweet tooth--to me it seems like the sugar doesn't integrate with the coffee to form one unified flavor. Mostly I drink lattes and mochas these days!
