Every morning I rub my eyes. The darkness outside mocks me as I start my day before the sun has to start his. I open my cabinet door and clumsily reach for a coffee mug. As the steamy coffee fills my cup, my weary mind begins to perk up. It is Pavlovian, and predictable. I fill my cup with creamer, hold it, allowing the heat to warm my hands. I breathe deeply as I take my first sip. The coffee runs down my throat, caffeine surges through my blood. My brain begins to wake up, my steps become quicker, my thoughts clear.
Every sip is magical. My drug of choice, what wakes me up and helps me accomplish my tasks before the sun even rises.
This post is brought to you by the wonderful folks over at Seattle’s Best Coffee. All opinions are totally mine.
I asked my friends to share their love of coffee with me. The answers ranged from “You want me to drink coffee…trust me!” to describing coffee as necessary and a lifeline. Sarah frequently tells her children “No talkie before coffee” – and I agree with that funny saying. In the morning, thoughts just do not make sense before coffee.
Tiffany even made a hilarious video describing her mad love for coffee. I remember feeling just like Eliza, who said, “Coffee takes me from the Big Bad Wolf back to Mom on the days I was up all night with the baby.”
And a few responded on Twitter too:
The taste of coffee is so important – even to a “I’ll have coffee with my creamer” girl like me. I want that first sip to be smooth and gentle. Seattle’s Best has the perfect coffee flavor for everyone and a money back guarantee to back it up. If you try a cup and don’t enjoy it, they will give you a refund on the entire bag!
