Photo-a-day 289: Strawberry lemonade

20121015-205933.jpg

I tweeted about discovering Costa’s strawberry lemonade a few weeks ago, but it probably bears repeating… When I worked in Calgary (and when I holidayed in Toronto) I really enjoyed Second Cup’s strawberry lemonade, and was quite disappointed to find that no coffee shops sold it in the UK on my return. But five years on, Costa has started selling it, and whilst it isn’t quite as lemony as Second Cup’s, it is pretty good!

Photo-a-day 188: Costa Express (again)

20120706-223417.jpg

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about the seemingly unstoppable spread of Costa Express machines. Today, I thought I’d throw caution to the wind, and – against my better judgement – try a hot chocolate produced by one of these machines.

My previous experience of machine-produced hot beverages has been dominated by overpriced and undrinkable rubbish from hospital vending machines. I’m not quite sure what I expected from this Costa machine: Something resembling coffee shop hot chocolate? Something undrinkable? Something inbetween?

As I pressed the button for a Costa hot chocolate, the one thing I didn’t expect was a cup of warm milk… yet that’s what I got! Not a drop of chocolate in sight! My faith in machine-crafted hot drinks isn’t exactly restored…!
