I used to be one of those, that bought Starbuck's every day;this lasted for about 6 months. One day,my brain FINALLY decided to work the math. Holy Cow! Ok, I needed a solution right then&there.I found an espresso maker at a second hand store for $12{it's still working to this day,almost 5 yras later}. I also splurged on a grinder from WalMart for like $15. I bought the Starbuck's whole bean espresso,chocolate syrup,adn other assorted flavored creamers. To this day, I average about $.030 or so on my lattes every day. I've even gotten good at recipes.. like the love bird{tasted like a chocolate covered cherry}For a 'venti' : 4 shots of espresso 1 1/2 cups of milk{ I use nonfat} 1 tbsp. chocolate syrup a TINY dash of vanilla 1/2 - 1 tbsp pf cherry syrup{depending on your taste} done! I love it,but then I'm Italian and love to cook&stuff..lol Happy New Year!, Lela
