Celebrating the Coffee Hop

This fun Coffee Hop is created by Micheal Di Gesu. All we have to do is tell what we like about coffee!

 Inhale the tantilizing perfume of brewing Colombian coffee. At six a.m. even before my eyes slit, I'm adsorbed with the fragrance. Reflexively, I smile. My waking thought is yummm...What better way to begin the day. (A massage might be nice, too)

With my eyes at half-mast, I float (clunk) down the stairs to where the perfectly timed coffeemaker has finished brewing. I pour a steamy cup and with both hands hover the mug beneath my nose. Ah-h...
By the time I inhale and drink that fresh cup of coffee, my adrenaline starts pumping. I'm alive. Then I look in the mirror---More caffeine needed--- Stat.

I'm a coffee addict. And an addict needs their fix. (Have you ever seen an addict without their fix?) Needless to say, I only require two to three hits, I mean, cups in the morning and I'm set for the day. 

What I love about freshly brewed coffee is not only the roasted savory flavor, but that morning jolt I need to get this body in motion.
What do you like about Coffee?

  2. Your cover was amazing!
    Never acquired a taste for coffee. That's probably a good thing.

  5. I like the taste, but it varies with what brand and what flavor you buy. I used to go into one of our coffee vendors here - Murchie's and just inhale while I waited to buy my fresh ground coffee. I was in coffee heaven when our younger daughter worked at Starbucks for a while and brought me home a bag every now and then.

  11. Congratulations on the novel, and it looks like you and I enjoy the same thing about coffee. If only our bodies would make caffeine from sunlight the way they make vitamin A. Or is that vitamin D? Maybe it's riboflavin. Although to be honest the only thing my body seems to make spontaneously anymore is ... never mind.

  13. For me, coffee is pure pleasure. I'm not sure it's the caffeine, since I only drink one (well, big) cup a day, but it's the taste, combined with the break. I don't drink it at breakfast, mostly afterwords, at work or at my computer. It keeps me company, and it keeps me warm.

    1. Liza, I do the same. I pour my cup and sit at the computer, but first thing in the morning.

  15. Those coffee timers are pretty amazing. A nice way to wake up. I drink coffee on my first break at work and it really helps me get through the day. Good luck with your novels!

  16. A huge coffee fan. It has to be ground and brewed right in the correct amount...or else I'm grumpy! Good luck with the novel!

  21. We love coffee in our house. If we run out of it, we make an emergency trip to the store! It perks us up in the morning. We sometimes grind our own, which makes it taste really good, I think.
    Happy weekend.

  22. I saw your cover on Alex's and I LOVE it!! I enjoyed your take on morning coffee. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm so sorry about the agent passing-on-the-ms thing. Serious bummer. But at least you have Tallas coming out to keep your spirits up! Wishing you much success!

  24. Confession time - I'm originally a tea lover. I only drank one cup of coffee a day, in the morning.
    But somewhere along the way, things changed, and I became a coffee junkie. Now I'm trying to cut down on the coffee drinking.
    And after all the hype surrounding Colombian coffee, I'm eager to taste it.
    And congratulations on the cover reveal! It's so exciting!
