Everyone loves coffee, right? Ok almost everyone.. I’m not much of a coffee person. I know, that’s pretty baffling, who in their right mind doesn’t like coffee? Are you sure you’re from LA? Well, it’s true I don’t like coffee, but I do love myself a delicious ice blended (I hope that counts). If you aren’t aware yet, The Coffee Bean has been promoting their “Build your own Original” Ice blended special all Summer long. If you go into Coffee Bean you can make your ice blended just how you’ve always dreamed of, and it’s nothing like Starbucks…where if you order from the ‘secret menu’ you have to give them the ingredients on how to make them. Yeah, we’ll pass on that. Instead, you can add options like Affogato which is a poured over espresso shot, or extra coffee, and cookies (my favorite). Of course there are more options than that, but you’ll just have to go see for yourself. There’s nothing wrong with a nice ice cold blended early in the morning, or a mid day pick-me-up to help get you through the day, or a nice treat after a long hard day at work. However you choose to consume your ice blended, do it on your own terms and build your own.
