Spicy coffee

When we go abroad we always try to get some coffee at Starbucks. No Starbucks in Sweden, and that's a shame. This time when we went to Australia we had some hours to kill at London Heathrow on the way down, and that's where we had our first meeting with their special seasonal flavours - this Christmas they were Gingerbread, Creme brulé and Peppermint. If I remember it right now Matli had a Gingerbread latte and I had a Gingerbread mocha since I wanted to be able to sleep on the plane. Later in Australia we had more and more, and lucky as we were we found a coupon in a free tourist guide which gave us two drinks for the price of one at Starbucks, so there was no excuse NOT to have our breakfasts and coffee breaks at Starbucks, almost every day in Sydney.

We did also buy two bottles of the wonderful Gingerbread syrup, so since we got back home we've had gingerbread lattes on the weekends. We will miss it when this second bottle is finished.

Way to experience all the unique places to get food and drinks in a region! (Not.)

actually, Sweden has some pretty amazing coffee shops and baristas. Sometimes they just take a little digging for. They even have a barista in the World Barista Championship this week! Check out the video:
