15 Signs You Are A True Coffee Lover

15 Signs You Are A True Coffee Lover

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy coffee.

There are two types of people in this world, coffee lovers, and losers. I’m kidding, but seriously, us coffee lovers are a special breed of people, and there are certain qualities that we have that set us apart.

1. You spend way too much time on the grocery store coffee aisle.

Many hours of your life have been spent pondering which type of coffee you are going to purchase this time. Are you going to stick with your favorite or will you try something new?

2. The way you fix your coffee is very precise.

Fixing the perfect cup of coffee is like a ritual. You have perfected the ratio of coffee to cream and you consider your coffee making skill one of your greatest qualities.

3. However, milk and sugar are optional.

Don’t get me wrong, we love a good latte but sometimes you just need a cup of plain black coffee.

4. You are immune to caffeine.

Getting up in the morning is a struggle with out a cup of coffee, but it's not about the caffeine. To be honest, it would probably take a ridiculous amount of coffee to hype us up. So you can find us drinking a cup in the morning to help wake us up, or later in the evening to wind us down.

5. You have a large collection of coffee mugs.

There is no such thing as too many coffee mugs. Tall ones, short ones, red ones, blue ones, if you see a mug unlike one in your collection it is hard not to get it. They clutter your cabinets and counter tops and probably your desk and night stand.

6. But you definitely have a favorite.

No matter how many mugs you may have acquired, there will always be one that you gravitate to. The way it fits in your hands and the number of cups of coffee you have shared bring about a special bond.

7. You know where all the coffee shops in your area are.

Sometimes Starbucks just doesn’t cut it. You have scouted out all the coffee shops around you and just like your mug collection, you may like them all but you definitely have your favorite.

8. You consider coffee a food group.

“Amy, did you eat breakfast?”

"Of course I did! I drink a cup of coffee every morning."

9. You always carry ibuprofen.

Because in rare cases when you have been deprived of coffee for several hours you have to have something to help fight those headaches.

10. The smell of coffee excites you.

When the coffee starts to brew you can smell it from across the room and you have to control yourself.

11. Your personality directly affects the amount of coffee you have consumed.

The amount of coffee you have had in a day determines how productive you will be. People will notice this and confront you, don’t listen to them, they probably haven’t had enough coffee yet.

12. You have a specific temperature you like to drink your coffee at.

If its supposed to be hot it needs to be consumed as soon as it becomes non-harmful to drink. Finding this perfect temperature can be quite dangerous and until mastered usually results in a burnt tongue. On the other hand, cold coffee needs to be cold but has to be finished before it gets watered down… tragic.

13. You have specific times in your schedule devoted to coffee runs.

Right after work or class you know what time it is, coffee time. You have got the perfect route down to your favorite coffee spot, and it is pretty much the only thing getting you through the day.

14. The perfect gift for you is coffee.

When someone really gets you they know to get you coffee. Knowing your perfect coffee order can be quite complicated, but for the coffee lover any coffee is better than none at all.

15. You never say no to coffee.

Anywhere, anytime, any day, you are always down for getting a cup of coffee.

To The Parent Who Chose Addiction

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.


When I was younger I resented you, I hated every ounce of you, and I used to question why God would give me a parent like you. Not now. Now I see the beauty and the blessings behind having an addict for a parent. If you're reading this, it isn't meant to hurt you, but rather to thank you.

Thank you for choosing your addiction over me.

Throughout my life, you have always chosen the addiction over my programs, my swim meets or even a simple movie night. You joke about it now or act as if I never questioned if you would wake up the next morning from your pill and alcohol-induced sleep, but I thank you for this. I thank you because I gained a relationship with God. The amount of time I spent praying for you strengthened our relationship in ways I could never explain.

SEE ALSO: They're Not Junkies, You're Just Uneducated

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

The amount of hurt and disappointment our family has gone through has brought us closer together. I have a relationship with Nanny and Pop that would never be as strong as it is today if you had been in the picture from day one. That in itself is a blessing.

Thank you for showing me how to love.

From your absence, I have learned how to love unconditionally. I want you to know that even though you weren't here, I love you most of all. No matter the amount of heartbreak, tears, and pain I've felt, you will always be my greatest love.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for leaving and for showing me how to be independent. From you, I have learned that I do not need anyone else to prove to me that I am worthy of being loved. From you, I have learned that life is always hard, but you shouldn't give into the things that make you feel good for a short while, but should search for the real happiness in life.

Most of all, thank you for showing me how to turn my hurt into motivation.

I have learned that the cycle of addiction is not something that will continue into my life. You have hurt me more than anyone, but through that hurt, I have pushed myself to become the best version of myself.

Thank you for choosing the addiction over me because you've made me stronger, wiser, and loving than I ever could've been before.
