Flying M Coffeehouse

My favorite coffee houses is in Boise Idaho. I was recently visiting there. One of the things that I do when I visit is go to Flying M Coffee House. When I lived in Boise, that is where you would often find me on Saturday mornings. Meeting friends for coffee, or I would be inside reading a book.  The staff is always friendly. But I honestly have to say that the coffee that they have brewed it the best. My choice is the House Blend. It's perfectly smooth and has a great taste. They also have a selection of treats/snacks. Big cookies that amazing.

I'm still cracking up over my coffee cup. Those of you that play Mario Brothers as a kid will understand why.

My recent visit was great. Got my perfectly brewed cup of coffee. Sat down inside drank my coffee while I talked to my mother. Idaho people are very friendly at this location. No one is pushy or rude. Like me their were lots of other coffee drinkers. That like to go to a location, where they can get a cup of coffee. Then be able to relax inside for a while. Who wouldn't want that.  The coffee house also has a gift shop in the back. I highly recommend that you check it out. I'm always amazed at how big the selection is. Not once has there been a time, that I couldn't find the best gift there.

If you are ever in downtown Boise please go to their location at 500 West Idaho Street, Boise Idaho.
Hours:     Mon-Fri    6:30 am-11 pm
                    Saturday   7:30 am-  11 pm
                    Sunday     7:30 am-  6 pm   

Starbucks Mobile Order & Pay

posted Jun 18, 2015, 8:41 PM by Tallia W

Starbucks released another feature on their app. They have now introduced mobile order and pay. The only bummer about this news. Is it is currently only available for I phone users. So that means Android users will have to wait (again). Til the new feature has been added.

 Here are a list of the new features
  • Allows you to order and pay for your before you get to the store
  • The app will also remember your favorite drinks
  • Recommends new drink you might enjoy
  • Offers ways to customize your drink

There are only a few select states that have been selected for this new feature. You might want to ask your local Starbucks Barista if this can be used in your state. Arizona is one of the states that is going to be participating with this. But again, if you do not have a I phone. You can't use this feature. I'm hopeful that they will be adding this for Android users in the future.

April 28th Starbucks released a limited edition S'more Frappucino Blended Coffee.
This drink will only be at Starbucks locations for a limited time. 

I manager at the Starbucks  that I frequent at, was kind enough. To go over the this newly crafted drink with me. 

This drink is made with several delicious ingredients that will be pleasing to your taste buds. 
Milk chocolate sauce
Marshmallow whipped cream
Graham cracker 
You can order the drink with or without coffee
Drink comes in the following sizes:
Mini $3.95
Tall $4.25
Grande $4.75
Venti $5.25


The drink that was made in the picture was a tall S'mores with out coffee.

The marshmallow whipped cream with graham cracker was the best part of the drink. 
Overall I was impressed with this drink, tasted just like the smores I used to eat as a kid. If you are a chocolate lover, you need to try this drink.
