Java Mama

This post  is a response to Mama Kat’s writing prompt to list 10 reason why I drink coffee.  I wrote it when I’d had one too many cups…

1.  I like it--a lot (so the other 9 reasons don’t matter).

2.  It gives me a reason to get out of bed every morning.

3.  It gives me a reason to go to bed every night (the sooner I fall asleep and wake up, well you know-reason #2).

4.  When combined with Coco Puffs or Cap’n Crunch, it’s a sure fire energy blast.
5.  Certain foods, like chocolate, taste much better with coffee. (Granted, chocolate tastes pretty good without coffee too).

6.  It requires that I go to Hawaii every so often-because that’s where you get the best Kona coffee.

7.  It really is such a lovely color naturally,  but I have so much fun creating new colors by varying the amount of cream I add.

8.  It  mixes well with other things-like Irish whiskey, for example.

9.  Because you don’t have to drink your coffee to enjoy its benefits.  Chocolate covered coffee beans, anyone?

10.  I like it—a lot (so the other 9 reasons don’t matter). Yes.  I KNOW I said that already.
I think I need another cup…


  1. Cute post! Love the nostalgic picture! Chocolate and Coffee are like peas and carrots, aren't they?

  2. They sure are! Part of a well balanced diet!

  3. I've never heard of Kona coffee. You've got me intrigued. And I agree, coffee tastes REALLY good with chocolate. This was a fun read Valerie!

  4. Hi Kim, Kona is my favorite variety-- it's grown in Hawaii, and is a bit on the pricey side-but it is definitely worth it!! I hope you get a chance to try some, some day:)

  5. Numbers 1 and 10 are all you need!

    As for number 7, I usually like my coffee brunette. If it's awful, I drink it blond. If it's super good, I drink it black.

    I do enjoy a good cup of Kona. I also quite enjoy Kenyan AA.

  6. Yum, coffee is the bestest ever!
