10. The aroma is amazing

  9. One sip wakes you up

  8. It's good plain

  7. Or all dressed up

  6. It's a good pick-me-up

  5. And it can help you relax

  4. It warms you if you're cold

  3. But doesn't make you hot if you're warm

  2. It's a siren call for your muse

And the #1 thing about coffee:

The first cup of the day is the best cup of the day.
Talli Roland said…
LOVE this list! :) You've nailed it.
Joanne said…
All right, this is my kind of post! There's a whole latte goodness going on with coffee :)
I like the smell, can't stand the taste though.
Colette Martin said…
I am a tea-drinker, but coffee does smell great!
Karen Walker said…
I'm like Laura, love the smell, can't handle the caffeine.
I only have one cup a day.....first thing in the morning. But love hot chocolate.

Sadly, it can sometimes give you heartburn. Oh, well -- that's what antacids are for! *off to pour a cup*
LR said…
I do love coffee! Tried to drink healthy green tea instead but it just wasn't the same...

Ah fellow addict! I'm enjoying my second of the day - an espresso I made because I was too lazy to clean out the plunger. I drink it in my most favourite cup - it has a picture of clothes-line on it and my best pal gave it to me about fourteen years ago! Yep, me and my coffee and I drink it black - no calories - just not after 2 pm!
Mason Canyon said…
Oh a list that speaks to my heart. I am addicted to coffee. Love the smell and the taste. You can't go wrong with a good cup of coffee anytime. The only bad thing I've found about it, it causes me to collect coffee cups. LOL Great list Carol. Have a wonderful weekend.

Thoughts in Progress
I wish I good drink the 0 calorie version. My favorites are the frozen ones that taste like milkshakes. Julie
Shirley Wells said…
Aw, I love coffee. And I always drink it black so no calories for me. A pity about the chocolate I have with it really. ;)
Yes to each and every one!
Julie said…
I'm totally addicted to coffee and now I'm having withdrawal after reading your list. It's been a few hours since I've had a cup!

Great list, although I can't seem to stick to the 0 calorie coffee, I always have to dress it up. Have a great weekend!
Hannah Kincade said…
Now I'm going to go home and make a cup. Thanks! ;)
Ciara said…
Coffee is the most important part of the day. I could not survive without it. LOVE THIS!
I'm having some now ... sigh, lovely wonderful's so ... civilized!
Emily R. King said…
I love the aroma the best, but that's probably because I don't drink it.

Coffee is liquid Heaven!
Er . . . would you believe I've never had coffee and don't like the smell?

*hides from booing*
Carol Kilgore said…
Wow. That makes you unique among all the commenters.
Janet, said…
Mmmmm - coffee. I like mine with creamer, but no sugar. By the time I get finished putting in the creamer I think it has quite a few calories.
Carol Kilgore said…
I used to use milk and sugar. But I switched to straight black a while back and I love it so much better.
