First thing in the morning I grind fresh de-caff coffee beans and make a fresh cup of coffee in a filter machine. This usually ends up being transferred into an insulated cup and gulped down between school drop off and getting to work.
During the day I usually drink fruit tea and try new ones often.
For a treat I have a weak cup of early grey tea which I love but cannot have much caffeine so it has to remain a treat, which I am sure makes it taste even better.

My favourite hot drink is a mocha with friends or having a hot chocolate with my daughter on a night before bed

My favourite hot drink is a cup of tea. In particular, it is a cup of tea in peace. On work days I make the drink as I walk into the office. My first cup of tea of the day and I get to savour it uninterrupted. Which is as important as the cup of tea itself.

Nontester; With a 2 year old and a baby, my favourite hot drink is one I've managed to finish whilst still hot, that hasn't had a breadstick, biscuit or toy car dipped into it.

I do love a well made Hot Chocolate!

I love a cup of tea especially first thing in the morning or with cake in the afternoon. Not too strong or weak, with semi skimmed milk and made using a

Coffee in the morning, nice and strong with a good crema on the top. Also love decaf coffee (from my pregnant days) so I tend to drink decaf if I have a cup later in the day.
Cappuccino if I have time to sit and relax (a croissant to dip in would be heaven too!)

It's got to be 'un suizo' - the most delicious chocolate drink in the world - almost like a hot chocolate mousse with a swirl of whipped cream on top.....highly calorific but hardly an everyday option unless you live in Spain, so who's worrying?

I LOVE a chai tea latte..sooooo good!! smile

Wanted to ask why you don't sell an unsweetened milk for cappuccinos and latte products?

I don't take sugar therefore i find all your products that require the milk far too sweet and not drinkable.

I like sweet tea in the mornings, a creamy frothy latte when out and about, and hot chocolate with cream on top in the evenings brew

I love hot chocolate - a selection pack of different flavours was a great gift from DH recently. I also drink a lot of tea, as long as I cake cake/biscuits to go with it smile

Non tester here! My favourite hot drink is a hot chocolate over Christmas with a heavy shot of amaretto. Probably nothing beats it in the world. Must have a large dollop of whipped cream on top and choc shavings though!

I love a cuppa in the morning to help warm me up & wake me up.

A mug of hot chocolate when in Costa or Cafe Nero is a treat when out shopping.

I like the occasional coffee; but keep some in the house foru FIL as he enjoys it more.

Non tester, best drink is Chai tea made with syrup, made so strong as to taste like milky cough mixture.

Best healthy drink is brown miso soup

My best hot drink is the 1st coffee of the day - drunk HOT when it's only me up and about. I need this one to kickstart me out of my zombified state!

4 month ago I ould tell that my favorite drink is coffe, made from freshly ground coffee beans. I adore this smell but when I get pregnant unfortunately It was first smell which made me sick.That's why now I am back to hot chocolate and black tea with sugar and milk smile

I love coffee and Tassimo know what they are doing in this regard! I thought I died and gone to heaven when they released the Costa range. My favourite has to be the Costa Latte, its like having my very own barista in the comfort of my own home.

Non tester - I'm definitely a latte lover. ��

Sixgeese Thu 24-Apr-14 21:06:10

Non -tester, I am a hot chocolate girl most of the time, with cream on top (but no marshmallows), sometime though a weak cup of lady grey is what I fancy.

My house has a huge cupboard of teas and coffees as DH loves to have lots of different hot drinks (Assam, Earl Grey, Darjeeling, Lady Grey etc)

My favourite drink changes but at the moment I love white hot choc in the evening after DC are in bed. I even stretch to bunging in marshmallows if I'm feeling decadent.
