Coffee Culture

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

Oh man, I'm such a coffee-nut that I simply have to share those coffee-licious photographs with you today. Monika calls Four Barrel her "coffee heaven" and I totally get why. I can almost smell the freshly roasted coffee beans and believe me: I have my eye on that cute French beret as well...haha

Darlings, I've been doing a bit of a research about coffee-culture lately and I would love to know, what "coffee-time" means to you? Is it all about the beverage itself; the mind set, the scent; the atmosphere or vibe; or maybe the person you are drinking it with? xo

P.S: My coffee heaven and NYC coffee break.
P.P.S: Also, my newest love!

I love the smell and the feel of the whole coffee culture. The only problem is I do not like coffee :)
Had a little taste once and...no thank you. Never had a cuppa. My husband and daughter like it. I kind of feel left out of the whole thing sometimes.

the taste the smell, and the best,the feeling it gives me.
Just one sip makes me the happiest girl on earth :)

Oh goodness! I am a totaly coffee fiend! I love everything about it, and look forward to having a cup or two every morning. I get my favorite beans delivered to me once a month, and I love opening the bag and smelling them!

Jeanette, my friend is so like that too. She always wants to go to a cafe but only to enjoy the smell. She only drinks green tea:)

I love what you said, Amy: "Just one sip makes me the happiest girl on earth" - so true!

Diana Mieczan said...

Tara, you have beans delivered? That is so cool. What's your favourite type?

Kelley said...

I <3 the smell of coffee too, but I like all the non-hardcore, caramel iced stuff. Beautiful pics :)

If you want deep coffee culture -- come to the Pacific NW. We practically bleed coffee here. Stumptown for life. But for me, it's about a good, smooth cup of coffee & visiting with a good friend. Nothing beats it

i am allll about the italian coffee culture. drinking from a ceramic cup at the bar with the barista who knows exactly what you want and guys in cool hats reading the paper around you and someone singing and everyone smoking outside...is where it's at.

Sara Szatmary said...

I love coffee... maybe even too much. These photos make me want another cup...

Diana Mieczan said...

Marissa, that sounds so good! I want to go back to Italy right now:)

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Mmm I can almost smell the coffee just looking at these pictures!

I can seriously smell the coffee from here!

Amber Blue Bird said...

coffee time for me is that 20- minutes before my husband and I have to leave for work when we can sit back, sip coffee, and talk a bit. those 20 minutes are wonderful

Loving this! I have gotten into enjoying coffee and just the simple joys of it the older I have gotten!

I love the smell of coffee, but I don't really drink much of it. Makes me too jittery, which is a shame since I live in Colombia and my boyfriend just planted a few thousand coffee plants....

Your coffee time, is my tea time. The smell is instant relaxation, inspiration, me-time. Or I love to drink it with friends which means happiness and reminiscing and creating new memories. There can be nothing bad associated with tea :)

Kris said...

I honestly only drink coffee when I'm in Europe. It's the only place where coffee doesn't make me ill.

I love the taste, the simplicity, the focus it gives you (unless when hungover, then it makes everything worse!)

Coffee is a great drink (like wine) because you can image where the beans were picked, what kind of day it was, etc while you drink it. yes, I stole that from the movie Sideways! ;oP

jessica said...

yummmmm! coffee!!

rachel! said...

Diana Mieczan said...

Amber, it truly sounds wonderful and Steph, how amazing that your boyfriend planted coffee plants. Btw: I love your tea time:)It sounds simply magical.

Diana Mieczan said...

Kris, I love that line! Brilliant:)
