Coffee Abroad; Thank you, Mama (mocha’s)!

Drink; Tirraman mocha (heavy caramel and mocha)
Stop; Auburn, Alabama
 
  Hey guys! I’m so sorry that my post for today is late! If you’ve been following on Instagram and Twitter, I’ve been rather sick. I tested the Tarteist Pro Remix palette for my next video (with my updated setup!), but I’ve lost my voice. So… there’s that.

       Anyway… let’s get to today’s delayed post! While on my weekend adventure to Auburn, I visited Mama Mochas again. This time I was pleased to see that they had completely rearranged their shop, which changed the aesthetic just a little bit. The lighting was different, I believe, as well! Then again, it could have been an illusion by the seemingly different decor. They changed up their seating arrangement, but despite the changes, it was this still the same old mama mochas. This time I also noticed, that they had a thrift rack. Where you could buy clothing that I assume was donated by the Bristow’s of the establishment. But before I perused the rack, I decided to get my long awaited coffee! Today, I got something new.
 
Mama Mochas tirraman mocha
 
         It honestly took all of my self-control not to get my usual White Russian, since I do gravitate towards the same flavors. I gathered my strength and this time I got the tirraman mocha. It’s their mocha with heavy caramel, and I gotta tell you, it is not the same as my white Russian. So tasting it shocked my taste buds because what I wanted was the white Russian, and it’s what I was expecting. That aside, this is not a bad drink. At first it’s got a very earthy tone underneath the richness of the caramel. There’s a fair bit of bite from the espresso. But once you get used to it you’re able to recognize the sweetness just underneath.This is another one from my trip, that you want to drink and great moderation. Small sips are your friend. Which sucks for me, because I like to drink my coffee fast. I’ll learn one of these days!
 
       Before I left, I perused the aforementioned thrift rack. I found this some super adorable pieces that almost came home with me! I had nearly settled on a super cute Jersey dress, or some really cute shirts that would be perfect for work. But, know I did not get anything I could wear to work. Except, on a casual Friday, maybe. I got an adorable black sweater comet looks like something I would see at the posh peach. With the word Love on the front.  It was only $5, no regrets. 
 
     My final consensus on Mama Mochas for this visit is….
 

Taste; /5

    This one honestly wasn’t for me, I prefer much sweeter flavors than this one delivered. It wasn’t bad by any stretch, so if you enjoy the bite of Espresso, you may really like this!

Instagrameter; /5

A new look means a new score! I wanna say I gave Mama Mochas a similar one last time! I really liked the openness of their new arrangement and found it very welcoming and cozy feeling. You know, despite being a fairly large and open floor. 

       As some real quick final thoughts of post, I want to thank you guys for joining me to check out another selection from Auburn! I sincerely do think that 2019 is going to be a year of content, and travel! Also, I haven’t done a giveaway in a while, so if you guys want in on any future ones that I’m planning, go ahead and sign up for my weekly newsletter!

Convenience Coffee: McDonald’s at home

For today’s Convenience Coffee, I gave McCafe a try. Since Starbucks left a bad taste in my mouth (literally), I felt like I needed to do something else. McCafe coffees that you can find in Wal-Marts and convenience stores, comes in 3 flavors. Vanilla, Mocha and my drink for today, Caramel. Much like our last…

Much like our last forray into convenience coffee, this isnt strictly “coffee” but a coffee “beverage” which apparently means whatever is inside has a water feeling. The smell, at first, was intense but settled down to a soft caramel with sharp accents.

The overall taste was pretty lax and unintimidating. At first it was unpleasant because felt like the flavor rested on the back of my tongue like a wax.

I guess drinking more of it made that sensation fade, luckily. The caramel flavor was much like the scent of the drink- sweet with a hint of sharpness (yet still too soft, but what else did I expect?).

Over-all the McCafe Caramel was leaps above the S’mores drink. I imagine it was fairly accurate and if I had frozen it, it would have tasted like the frappe from McDonald’s.

This gets a pretty solid rating, as far as bottled coffee goes! If you enjoy the McDonald’s frappes you’ll most likely enjoy this.
