We all have our coffee preferences: black, organic, decaf (someone please explain this to me), doused in sugar. What does your local brew choice say about you?
“If I don’t sip my Black and Gold coffee from the chipped fleur de lis mug in multiples of three, the Saints will lose.”
“This is where all the locals go. Hardly anyone knows about it.”
“I’ll have a Big Mac, a large order of fries, McNuggets, and a Diet Coke.”
“I’ll take a splash of caffeine in my heavy cream, please.”
“The best part of waking up is Fireball in your cup.”
“The best part of waking up is the entire liquor cabinet in your cup.”
“I’m in the middle of Pynchon’s Bleeding Edge.” *Flips page of US Weekly.
“I’m a conservative liberal; a Catholic atheist; and the drinker of decaffeinated, light roast, Swiss water process, USDA organic, fair trade coffee from Mexico. With unpasteurized, 1.5% goat’s milk — preferably Himalayan goats.”
“I’m not putting it in my body unless it contains caffeine.”
“After we buy matching cardigans at J. Crew, let’s drink a couple of glasses of Pinot Grigio at the Olive Garden.”
