I am going to Costa coffee in Staines this morning and will probably have a latte.

annsixty Thu 28-Jun-18 09:11:30

Americano with hot milk and preferably at a nice Garden centre.

Auntieflo Thu 28-Jun-18 09:16:55

Americano with cold milk, and maybe a Pasteis de Nata, if available, but I really shouldn't

NanaandGrampy Thu 28-Jun-18 09:20:12

Its got to be a mocha Frappuccino , tall and frosty on a hot day! And I wouldn't say no to a skinny peach and raspberry muffin on the side ;-)

hildajenniJ Thu 28-Jun-18 09:25:10

Americans, no milk, no sugar. I like my coffee strong and black.

Mapleleaf Thu 28-Jun-18 11:40:06

A cup of americano with cold milk and a toasted tea cake would do the trick. 😁

aggie Thu 28-Jun-18 12:07:30

Costa , an Americano and a lemon tart , it has a posh name but memory fails

mcem Thu 28-Jun-18 12:39:10

Flat white at the local independent coffee shop or, even better, at the restaurant managed by DD2 who makes superb coffee!

ffinnochio Thu 28-Jun-18 12:57:23

Mocha Frappé

Greyduster Thu 28-Jun-18 12:58:30

Americano with cold milk for me, and buttered crumpet would go down nicely. Or two buttered crumpets. And some jam......

Not coffee at all Mick but Earl Grey tea, and a Danish pastry, especially the custard and apricot kind.

Pittcity Thu 28-Jun-18 14:33:02

Mine's a skinny chai latte with cinnamon sprinkles.
Iced coffee of some sort in Summer.

Pittcity Thu 28-Jun-18 14:34:50

Aggie, I'm a sucker for a Costa lemon tart, but prefer to give my custom to independent cafés.

Cherrytree59 Thu 28-Jun-18 14:42:38

Americano black.

Just had a very hot walk home from yoga.
so I'm considering
a tall glass of iced coffee with floating ice cream.

GrannyGravy13 Thu 28-Jun-18 14:54:31

Decaf Latte and a Danish pastry, preferably apricot.

GrannyGravy13 Thu 28-Jun-18 14:57:06

Oops meant to say if possible I use an independent cafe, have an extremely good one down the end of my road with a beautiful sunny courtyard garden.

Alimarb Tue 10-Jul-18 18:54:35

I like a skinny cappuccino (with chocolate sprinkles) and a toasted teacake

ginny Tue 10-Jul-18 19:21:38

Always try to use independent coffee shops. Normally have a skinny latte.

aggie Tue 10-Jul-18 19:43:03

I do frequent the independent cafe accross the road as well as whatever chain is near bye when shopping , but more inclined to have a meal than just coffe at the independent , I do like to shop in independent stores too , but Costa has the nicest lemon tarts smile

Shirleyw Sat 11-Aug-18 04:45:58

I frequent costa and have a skinny cortado.

loopyloo Sat 11-Aug-18 07:56:13

If feeling good, I have a black decaff. But not often. This morning I will take a flask of coffee with me to the allotment where I will be picking the plums. I hope they are not all maggotty.

Charleygirl Sat 11-Aug-18 08:24:26

I like Waitrose's Americano with cold milk.

Squiffy Sat 11-Aug-18 08:29:03

I had to look up Cortado blush!

Black coffee or Earl Grey for me. Our lovely independent tea room closed down sad, so haven’t indulged lately. We’re awash with chains, which all seem so samey and soulless.

I'm new to this site, so just joining in on a thread that appears to have been going for a while smile.

I'm a 'Costa Flat White' kinda-gal - made with their 'Character Roast' and served 'Extra Hot' ................. just wish that they did it in a larger size cup wink!
