My Love Letter To Coffee

My Love Letter To Coffee

With much love, The Coffee Addict

Dear Coffee,

Let me start out by saying that yes, I started drinking you out of necessity. In high school it was hard to be awake at 7am. But through my early morning coffee runs I found a new appreciation for you. You were always there for me, you brightened my day when no one else could. Now, I don’t just drink you when I need to wake up or when I need to get a paper done that I saved until the last minute. No, I drink you because I love you.

Starting with the obvious, your taste. You are so black and bitter yet you can be transformed into something so sweet. Just a touch of milk and a squirt of pumpkin syrup can transform you into something so extraordinary that it should be illegal. You can be anything anybody wants you to be. Caramel, mocha, vanilla, hazelnut, and every flavor in between. You are great because you are so versatile.

Your taste isn’t the only thing I love about you though. I love how you can be a year-round treat! You can be served hot or cold, decaf or house blend, tall or Venti… the options are endless. For every occasion there is a different temperature, taste, or size to match.

The true coffee lover that I am also knows that you aren’t just for those dreadful mornings but you are for any time of day. As the saying goes, “Its 7am somewhere!” In the afternoons you help me through my long classes so that I don’t fall asleep. At night you help me get the motivation to finish my work, you keep me alert and focused. Any time of day you are a treat.

If you still don’t believe my love for you is true then know that you aren’t just good to me, but you are good for me. You have so many health benefits for example, you lower the risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s, reduces risk of suicide and depression, and even helps increase my fiber intake! You improve my energy levels, boost my metabolism, and provide me with all your nutrients. Without you I don’t know where I would be.

Coffee, you are the tangible form of liquid joy. You are amazing in every way. You don’t just help me but you help everyone around me because without you I would be lost. If it weren’t for you I don’t know if I would still even be in school. You keep me grounded. You keep me sane. I love you.

With much love,

The Coffee Addict

4 Breakfast Spots Near The University of Kentucky That Will Actually Get You Out Of Bed In The Morning

These places will satisfy all of your breakfast cravings.


If you're a breakfast foodie like I am, you know that is an absolute priority to find the most popular breakfast spots despite the city you may be in. You don't want to visit the touristy and basic restaurants that everyone else goes to, but instead, you are determined to uncover the locations that are the best of the best. Most foodies will go to great lengths to discover these places. As a University of Kentucky student and major foodie, I have searched all over Lexington to find my favorite places to visit on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This took my entire first semester and many trips to the ATM, but today, I am now blessed to say that I am a regular at all 4 of these incredible breakfast spots.

1. The Great Bagel

The Great Bagel is one of my all-time favorite restaurants to visit on Sunday mornings. The restaurant offers a variety of bagel sandwiches and freshly squeezed orange juice, and it makes for the perfect early morning start to a day filled with homework or relaxation.

2. Chocolate Holler

Though not a true restaurant, Chocolate Holler is one of the most popular coffee shops near the University of Kentucky. Because it is only a 3-minute drive from campus, Chocolate Holler is always buzzing with UK students who come to socialize or study. The coffee shop is most well known for its chocolaty drinks and the music is great there, too!

3. Stir Krazy

Stir Krazy is a local smoothie bar down the street that serves protein shakes, smoothies, and tea. Though It only consists of these three beverages, the shakes at Stir Krazy are enough to fill you up for breakfast or lunch. Each shake or smoothies range from 200 to 250 calories and serves as the perfect energizer before a workout or a filling recovery drink after a workout.

4. La Madeleine

La Madeleine is a French breakfast and lunch cafe conveniently located on campus (and only a 30-second walk from my dorm). Their breakfast is served all day long and their croissants are to die for. I highly recommend building your own omelet for the most fulfilling experience. Not to mention, their iced caramel macchiatos are a great refresher on the side.

No matter which city, state, or country I am currently in, I make it my mission to eat as a local would. In Lexington, Kentucky, these four breakfast spots are guaranteed provide you with a plethora of different types of food to get you through even the worst cases of morning hunger. Though these places are my current favorites, I am now looking forward to containing the search for more breakfast restaurants, cafes, and juice bars throughout my next four years in this city.
