Coffee talk……{a fun giveaway, oh yea!}


Staples gave me the opportunity to try a Starbucks Verismo in my home.

The single-cup brewing system was fun to use
and made yummy drinks just like you get in 
your local Starbucks all in the comfort
of your very own home.



I am not ashamed to admit, I am not a coffee drinker,
despite living in the pacific northwest {I hear all your gasps!}.
However, I love tea and really liked to be able to brew
a single Chai tea latte.  My girls enjoyed making
hot cocoa and the photo at the top is of my dad
who was visiting at Christmas and enjoyed MANY 
a hot beverages courtesy of the Starbucks Verismo!


Staples has generously offered to give one lucky
Forever*Cottage reader a Verismo of their very own!

To Enter The Giveaway:

* Leave a comment with your favorite Starbucks order,
that's it!

Enter by midnight PST on 1/17/14.  I will announce
the winner on Saturday.

Good Luck!

  3. I usually get a vanilla latte. I didn't drink coffee until my oldest was in preschool, and the other pre-school mom's pushed me to give it a try. Now I couldn't imagine NOT drinking coffee, although I also drink tea, as well.
