coffee

I get it — your morning coffee is a sacred ritual. It has a rhythm and a rhyme to it and is something you want just the way you want it, regardless of how simple–even if it’s enjoyed black, on the run and in a plastic cup. For many, the good ol’ morning joe complements a specific part of the day and few veer from what they’ve come to sip on regularly. However, there are others who could do with a revamp to their caffeine fix. The following coffee recipes are simple, homemade variations of traditional coffee that manage to stay as slimming as they are delicious. Enjoy!
