Can't Live Without: Coffee

For I have known them all already, known them all;
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons. -- T.S. Eliot

Is it just me, or does coffee taste even better on a cool, gray, cloudy fall morning?

That first shot of espresso.  A latte later in the day...

Coffee is my favorite vice.  Truth be told, I think I'd sooner give up wine than my daily cup of joe.

That moment of contemplation.  A bit of conversation. Or a daydream. A treat. A break. A breath.  Time off for good behavior.

Won't you put your feet up and join me for a cup?

Does your day not really start until you've had that first sip of coffee? Or is something you can live without?


  1. AMEN TO THAT....I am a fellow "coffee connoisseur", Peets is my current brand of choice.....love it even more than my beloved Starbucks! I could not live without it, and yes coffee does taste great on a cloudy gray day but it tastes great on sunny days, snowstorms, rainouts, cool fall days....basically anytime. It is the first thing I do when I get up in the morning make my obligatory two cups of coffee always served in my "French market" mug that I bought in New Orleans (because its very oversized)!

  2. I am soooo with you on that one! Just finished my giant mug:)

  3. This is a hot topic for me right now. There is no coffee at the ranch where I'm going in 2 weeks, so I have been weening myself off the brew. Last week I had only a half shot in my daily latte. Today, gulp, I am going to drink decaf...

  4. Oh Emily, good luck with that! Such fortitude. I would be sneaking little packets of Via with me!!!

  5. I am definitely a coffee gal! Usually make my pot at home in the mornings...driving my boys to school, mug in hand!

    But with this cooler weather, I find myself stopping into Starbucks for an afternoon pick me up!!

  6. My eyes wouldn't open and my brain wouldn't work without my first morning cup... especially since I'm up before the birds! But wine does come in as a close second, and dark chocolate, too.

  7. i sooooo love my coffee...
    one thing in the world i could live without...
    but wouldnt want to!

    as a friend once told me... "it is our baby bottle"!

    have a wonderful day dear friend...

  8. oh yes! I'm with you all the way...

  9. Bonjour,
    I have just found your blog chez Red Ticking. I am a local blogger too! Loved this post and from what I could see while browsing your site quickly - until I return - I am going to enjoy following your blog! A bientôt, Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  10. I totally agree...my day is completely off if I don't have my cup of coffee...make that two...

  11. My day doesn't officially start without my coffee. But I think coffee in Paris would be my ideal combination!

  12. I am not a coffee drinker, but on a cool grey day like today I can totally relate to wanting a warm, cozy drink! (especially while blogging...:))
