I love the smell of coffee but have never been able to drink it. :(
Did you ever find a name for your Tiki guy?

Liza said...

I haven't had mine yet this morning...and won't be drinking mine for over an hour...you have tantalized me!

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.

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.

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. ;)

Elspeth Antonelli said...

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!

Melissa Ann Goodwin said...

I'm having some now ... sigh, lovely wonderful coffee...it'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!

The Golden Eagle said...

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.
