RECIPE: Coffee Shop coffee drinks you can make at home

I don’t know about you, but I do like enjoying a really good cup of coffee at a coffee shop. It feels really American and European at the same time to me, depending on your choice of drink.

It’s annoying you can’t get the same type of drinks at home, with ease and little expense. Oh, wait…you can! Here’s a few coffee shop style drinks that you CAN make at home. Enjoy!
