As anyone who works out of the home can attest, coffee is the bloodline of the office. It's also a beverage that's considered second-to-none by my husband, so I'm always surrounded by some form of java. I'm not a big fan of plain ol' coffee, but love to indulge in a mocha latte, or caramel iced coffee, or something with a little flavor. Basically, I like to play with my coffee. So, I've come up with a list of the perfect coffee recipes for every occasion. Warning, if you prefer your coffee black, these are probably not for you :)
