coffee break

i love that i have a friend who
shares my love for coffee
(pictured below)




and it's not really the coffee [tea, hot chocolate]
that we are there for, it's for the conversation,
the company, the moment.

ok, it's also for the coffee! :)



thank you for the times we've shared :)

rhein said...

in my culture, tea time and/or coffee, "la merienda" is such an integral part of the day...

when i'm away from the people i share my life with, i always tell them, "i miss the coffees:.)"

From one coffee lover to other...

sirbarrett said...

Here's a shot of bavarian cream for you. I like it in my coffee. No? You'll pass? Ok, no problem. After all, I'm not here to force new flavours on you, I just like to chat. It's nice to get away from Tim Horton's and go elsewhere for once. The coffee is so good! You have nice little shops here in Chicago. I'll be sure to come back.

-raindrops- said...

There is so much more to coffee than just its taste. It is all that comes along with it. The conversations, the moments, the friendships. I shall have a coffee now!

Silly Adventures said...

nice pics. as another coffee junkie, i got some bad news today. i will have a big surgery next week and the docs warned me this morning that cigarettes, alcohol and coffee might be something to cause pain in the future. what a bummer. might have a look for something else. but as long as the nice conversations come with it, i am okay. any suggestions? ;-)

Potted-flower said...

Anonymous said...

you're right... a coffee with friends is just a perfect moment. I heard a turkish sentence about that.. coffee has to be sweet as the love.. Luna

jenn see said...

definitely have to echo that sentiment.

Lorena said...

luna :: i like that saying, thanks for sharing. just this morning i had a very sweet coffee :)

jenn see :: cheers!

Coffee chats have something very fresh, that no other conversation has. You're there for the coffee, for the friend's company, but you take everything so lightly...One of my favorite coffee breaks these days are the ones I have every two or three weeks with my mom especially because they don't happen that often.
