a latte for less

[I read about this in a magazine & had to try it before I shared]
Looking for a way to save some $$$ lately?
Last week, I tried it for myself.

Order one [or more] shots of espresso 
& ask the barista to pour it over ice.
Then visit the condiment station and add your own milk.


I'll admit, I was somewhat apprehensive to try it out,
thinking, "are they going to call me out?"
But I took a deep breath & calmly asked the barista
for "two shots of decaf espresso poured over ice."
They served up my espresso, just as I asked  & I added my own milk...
mission accomplished.
I saved more than a dollar!

Anyone else gonna try it out?
Let me know if you do...and Happy Friday!


  1. I read about it in Real Simple too and was wondering if it actually worked! Thanks for sharing your real life story :) I need to try it for myself now!!

  2. Hmmmm, I never thought to do that! I'll have to give it a try :)

  3. That's a neat idea! And you're still paying for the espresso, so they don't care if you add more milk than usual. ;)
