A LETTER TO ONESHOTLATTE

Dear Katie,

I’d like to call you Katie because it is much sweeter to call you than Oneshotlatte.

You know that one shot is never enough to fulfill our thirst of coffee so I am wondering why did you put up your blog name with Oneshotlatte. Why not two shots or multiple shots? I’d like to know your story behind this or else I’ll be stuck wondering if you really are just sipping one cup of latte a day. Please don’t let me be hanging. Please.
