espresso coffee

Does anyone have tips for making good coffee house coffee at home?

I love Sonics mocha latte but can't find a copycat recipe.

A great latte is so simple and believe it or not very very good. I use vanilla coffee, but you can use any kind you like or even regular coffee and add a tad of flavored cream or liquid flavors... then add a tablespoon of FROZEN cool whip to it.. mix well and ... its a good latte... and cost only a couple cents more than your regular morning coffee... compared to 3 bucks for sonic or more for some of the others.

Sounds good! Could you use cocoa powder? I never have choc syrup or cocoa mix on hand. I could make up some choco syrup..........

you can use anything that you think you would like there are no limitations ( except your imagination) ... cocoa powder, syrup other flavors anything at all will work.
