What is coffee?

An oldie, but a goodie category of posts–probably my favorite if I’m being honest!

What is coffee?

Coffee is . . .

  • calming
  • comforting
  • reassuring
  • relaxing
  • soothing
  • supportive
  • therapeutic

In other words, coffee is one of those magic elixirs that helps all things fall into place 🖤

What’s the best . . .

  • What’s the best coffee brand?
  • What’s the best coffee flavor?
  • What’s the best coffee creamer?

What’s the best . . .

  • What’s the best time of day for coffee?
  • What’s the best way to make coffee?

Where’s the best . . .

  • Where’s the best place for coffee — near you?
  • Where’s the best place to sip coffee?

What’s the best . . .

  • What’s the best thing to eat with coffee?
  • What’s the best thing to do after coffee?

. . . maybe it depends on your mood . . .

. . . maybe it depends on your week . . .

. . . maybe it depends if you’re on vacation . . . or at work . . . or at home . . .

It’s all debatable, but if it feels like the best to you, then it’s the best if you ask me.



World’s Most Expensive Cup

A cup of coffee can be cheap, quite affordable, and still be good.

A cup of coffee, every day, can also add up quickly.

Drinking coffee is a habit, a routine, and ritual for many people around the world. It tastes good, it feels good, and it is worth the expenditure, in my opinion.

While I support the idea of drinking coffee, trying coffee, and spending a little pocket money on coffee, I’m also rationale, reasonable, and responsible. I live within my limits, which means I will be skipping the world’s most expensive coffee.

Where is the world’s most expensive cup of coffee? Of course in one of the most expensive cities in the world: San Francisco.

One of my favorite cities in the world is serving one of the most, supposedly, tasty cups of coffee in the world–for the mere price of $75. That’s not a typo.

Am I curious? Yes. Do I want to try it? Absolutely. Can I try it? Nope. No way can I justify spending that much on a single cup of anything. So I will leave it to you, please let me know how it is, let me know if it is truly as magnificent as it should be . . . for $75!

Oh and luckily, for all of us, this cup will eventually make its way around California, available at your nearby Klatch Coffee. So if you’re not in San Francisco, maybe you could still try it for me. 😜

  • required
*all responses–me, and a whole lot of other people I imagine


Candy for breakfast?

At home I regularly drink coffee sans cream and sugar. Sure I go through phases where I might add a little brown sugar, or I might add a bit of half-and-half, but for the most part plain coffee is my jam.

Outside of my home, I’m all about the fancy flavors. It makes my coffee more special, and I feel more justified in the expenditure–if it’s special than it’s okay to spend money on it!

However, I may be able to get some fancy flavors, and save some money, coming this new year.

I just learned that Coffee-mate will be coming out with Snickers and Dove Chocolate creamers!

I have a sweet tooth and I can definitely get on-board with these options. I was already excited for the new year, now I’m even more excited. I already knew I would break some New Year’s resolutions, but this time I know how I will break my sweets and desserts one😝.

There’s always news in the coffee-world, I think I just shared my favorite story of the year. Cheers!
