Peppermint Mocha

I love my coffee. Not only because I need a little caffeine boost, I actually love the aroma of it. But it can get costly if I have to buy a coffee everyday, especially the fancy ones. Why not try making them at home! It maybe easier than you think! This peppermint mocha is just in time for the holiday season too!
