You’ve read the romance novels. You’ve watched the gushy movies with horrific acting with incredibly attractive people that make you cry when they achieve true love. You’ve also found a few loves and made a few stories of your own. However, none of those kisses were ever quite as hot as a big, tantalising, delicious, smoking hot… cup of coffee.
Coffee was there for you from day one. It was there for you on the cold and snowy mornings you barely had the will to live. It was there to get you through the long nights of cramming for midterms you should have prepared for weeks prior.
It livened your eyes at those first few internship meetings. It reminded you that you were a rockstar, even at 6 a.m. on Mondays. It was your daily pep talk. It got you through the bad times, accompanied you through the good times. Served as your motivator, confidant, and partner. What more could you ask for? (Looking for a green smoothie recipe? Watch Mamamia TV’s recipe below. Post continues after video.)
Coffee is patient, coffee is kind. Coffee never fails.
1. You’ve been drinking coffee for like, well, ever.
People are often saying they didn’t start drinking coffee until college or having kids and at that moment you just recall you brewing a pot at like age 12. Amateurs. You’ve loved coffee since Day One. You probably had coffee in a sippy cup at some point, honestly.
2. You reconsider your attraction for someone if they tell you they don’t drink coffee.
It’s not you, it’s me. Well actually it is you, and the fact that you are getting in between me and coffee . . . seriously, how can you trust a non coffee-drinker? (Post continues after gallery.)
3. You have a mug collection massive enough to put an old lady’s doll stash to shame.
You need a mug for every season, occasion, stage of life, and the list goes on. Travel mugs, big mugs, dainty mugs, mugs with witty sayings on them… no boundaries.
4. You can drink coffee at any time of the day. You do not discriminate.
Some people say a cup of coffee too late in the day makes it hard to fall asleep and you’re all like, “HA. I’m immune to that shit.”
5. You have the strangest preferences at times.
But ultimately your passion for coffee does not waver in times of desperation, so you will drink whatever they hand you.
6. Everyone around you has already memorised the kind of coffee you enjoy at this point.
They don’t even have to ask if you want it, because obviously the answer is yes.
