Though it’s only in the 50’s here right now… it’s supposed to reach 70 today! A chilly morning called for hot coffee. And you know what I’ve been loving this week? Starbucks Via!
My roommate picked up a package of the Vanilla Via at Starbucks the other day for us to try. It’s great when you are in a hurry in the morning (as I almost always am) and don’t have time to put on a pot of coffee or just want to make one cup.
The vanilla flavor is subtle, not too sweet or artificial tasting. Which is good because I’m not a HUGE vanilla coffee fan… more of a hazelnut or almond girl.
All you do is pour the packet of Via into a mug and then add about 8 oz of hot water, stir and add milk or whatever you like to add to your coffee. Note: it’s already sweetened so you don’t have to add sugar. I will say that it’s not overly sweet though, but it’s good enough for me.
I’m not sure how much it costs but they do come in boxes of six. I think it amounts to about $1 a cup of coffee which is less expensive than stopping for a coffee but more expensive than brewing a pot. Oh well, sometimes you gotta pay for convenience.
Bonus: right now Starbucks is giving a free tall beverage with any purchase of flavored Via!
Bonus Bonus: it’s a long weekend!!! Have any good plans?
