Good memories of Costa Coffee – taught me the Flat White ๐Ÿ˜€ – at streets of London and Dublin about 10 years ago made me order this without hesitation – Wondered why my credit card was saying Coca Cola Company and learned now this is part of Coca Cola Co.

Great drip coffee just picked it up because of old style can design but it worked/tasted great!! (although I could not follow the recommendation at the can – drinking this asย  Cafe au lait – due to my personal issue…- tried once and that thing happened )ย  ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Another thing learned/reminded via WFH is the fact I drink a lot of coffee… As the volume of coffee I drink cannot be sustained with Espresso machine which has been the usual go-to at home, decided to buy a can of drip coffee – can’t recall the last time I bought the drip coffee. ๐Ÿ™‚

Folgers drip coffee reminded me the old days in the dorm in Iowa..
