Ode to Coffee: a Pinterest Love Song

Coffee.

Java.

Brew.

Espresso.

Cup of Joe.

I’m a obsessed lately.  I don’t know what happened.  I used to be a casual coffee drinker, one or two cups a day.  Now I find myself wishing for a third or fourth…only indulging sometimes.  I even want it at night- what is that about?  A few years ago I couldn’t even smell coffee grounds at night without feeling woken up.

My coffee interest really perked up (ha! get it?) when I was a barista at Starbucks in college.  Every week we got a free pound of coffee to take home and it was all you could drink espresso during your shift.  I worked the early shift, 5 am to 2 pm, so I needed (and consumed) a lot of coffee.  I knew I had really gotten in deep when I switched to almond Americanos.  They mean business.

One of my favorite treats is ordering a cup of decaf coffee with dessert on date night. I’m pretty sure this means I am officially a grown up.  You’d think that birth of my baby would have ushered in my adulthood, and yet it is my ever-increasing love and need for caffeine that proves that I have shed my childish ways and put on my old lady pants.

Instead of drinking coffee at 9 pm, I scratched that itch without keeping myself up all night. Thanks, Pinterest. Head over and follow my “Ode to Java” if you’re a caffeine junkie like me. Happy pinning!



  • I love it! I rarely drank coffee until I was in my mid 20’s. Then I fell in love with it! Hot coffee, Iced coffee, blended coffee drinks. Your almond americano sounds like something I must try! I do a maple iced latte at home that’s pretty darn tasty. Perfect summer afternoon drink! I’ll certainly be checking out that pinterest board! :)

  • I’ve been obsessed lately too! I used to drink just one or two but now I want one a little later in morning. I typically skip it but today I was definitely dragging and HAD to have that third cup!

  • […] already established that I don’t like Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.  Despite this, I still find myself there from time to time because they are so darn […]
