Accept it. Radically!
Wait, what? You don’t drink coffee? So what are you doing with your life? And seriously how can you not like the taste and the flavor of this magic potion? Oh, okay, I know what’s your problem. You’ve never really drunk a delicious cup of an Italian coffee.I’m telling you. It’s just how it is. Accept it. Radically. Be wise, just think this over once again. There is still hope. It’s never too late. And it’s definitely better late than never. But, of course, the choice is yours. But, if I can give you one piece of advice give your relationship with coffee one more chance. Ok, last chance. And if it won’t work out this time forget about it. You will just go your way… I mean, no offense. But promise me that you will think it through, weigh up all your options and let your conscience decide. Give yourself a bit of credit. I believe in you.
Wake me up before it begins
Ok, you’re telling me that you don’t drink coffee. So how exactly you start your day? So what exactly do you do to open your eyes? And I mean open them wide and see the reality clearly? And then what do you use to boost your productivity, motivation and energy levels? What is your secret? Are you even a human? What’s wrong with you? Honestly, I cannot even see straight before I make myself the first coffee of the day… You’re telling me that I am addicted to coffee? How dare you! I make my own, conscious choices every single day and it’s just a coincidence that my very first choice in the morning is always a long black with a dash of almond milk and coconut oil… Yes, it’s my own choice. I’m not nervous! You are! No, I’m not projecting my feelings on you. You have no idea how wrong you are about that, my dear. Well, if you don’t like coffee I don’t even know if I can trust you. Yes, it’s that serious. I don’t even know if I feel comfortable with you… Maybe we should take a break, give ourselves some time and when you make up your mind you can come to me and we will reopen this conversation. It depends on you. I can promise you right now that I’ll be a loving, good and understanding companion.
Let’s make a pact
Well, someone’s in a good mood today. And yes, it’s me. I’m not going to lie to you. I’ve already started my day with a long black with a dash of almond milk and coconut oil, of course, and I am on my way to my favorite coffee shop in the city center to get my creamy cappuccino, the second coffee of the day. I’d better be going because I have to be there by 12. Why? Because here in Italy, we’ve got some serious rules when it comes to the coffee. If you want to drink coffee like an Italian. Well, you need to follow this rules. Without any exception. Besides, who would like to drink a milky coffee after dinner and causes digestive issues? Well, no one, I guess. At least I don’t. So, I’m leaving and you’re either coming with me or you’re not. The choice is yours. As always. Wait, what? You’re actually coming with me? Well, I’m not going to lie I’m a bit surprised. So, better get going or we’ll be late. Ok, but first we need to make a pact. You will order something and there will be a caffeine in it. You Ok with that? Right here,right now, let’s make a deal. Ready to leave? It’s time to go.
An infinite number of variables
What? You don’t know what coffee type you want to try? Well, I agree with you there is a surprising variety of choices. Know what the best part about it is? Every choice is the right one when you make it. Believe me, I know what I’m talking about. Well, you should know that. Indeed, there are many different types of coffee and no, coffee shop chain it’s not an option. Not here, not in Italy. We are talking about the world capital of coffee. It’s a serious thing, man. Show some respect, would you? Ok, we need to talk about your options… se, let’s see:
The feel-good hormone dopamine
It looks like you really enjoy your creamy cappuccino topped with a sprinkling of cocoa powder. Great choice, by the way! I’m so proud of you! You couldn’t have chosen any better. I know, right. I couldn’t agree more with you. Yes! And now we’re talking! I love your attitude! So, you’re telling me that you are slowly becoming a coffee lover? What did you just say? You want another cup of coffee?! I’m sorry but hold on a second there. Caffeine is a very powerful stimulant you really don’t want to overdose it… How does it feel? Well, let’s see… some of the symptoms are nervousness, increased heartbeat, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, dizziness, sweating and heart palpitations… It’s not fun. Don’t forget that you are still a newbie to the coffee. Give yourself some time to get used to its properties. Don’t rush it. Discover the flavor, enjoy the taste, indulge in a moment of bittersweetness of caffeinating fantasy. Develop your appetite. Let the caffeine stimulates the release of the feel-good hormone dopamine. Let the coffee flow through you. Feel the caffeine ruins in your veins…
It makes me feel so GOOD
What? Are you sure? What did you just say? You’ve just called yourself a coffee lover? Oh my gosh, I am so happy for you! Another coffeeholic in the family. Let’s indulge in caffeine dreams… caffeinate me, please! Right here, right now. I cannot wait any longer… Thanks. Yes, it’s so true! Whether you enjoying a delicious cup of coffee alone at home or with your friends in one of your favorites coffee shops it is always a quality time. Because coffee makes us feel so good, high on dopamine, productive, motivated and inspired. Coffee makes us feel high on life. It’s an elixir of the gods. A magic potion. A life in a tiny porcelain cup. A loyal companion in many an adventure. Coffee makes us feel crazy, sexy cool (Ok, I got a little carried away…) Today I have converted one soda lover into a coffee lover. And, let me tell you I feel proud of myself… so happy I could cry…
And enjoy your coffee in moderation!

I hear you
Let’s drink some coffee! Shall we? ☕☕
Doing just that this morning. Into town now. Have a great weekend
Thanks! I wish you a great weekend, too!!
Next full moon 0° Gemini. 25th November here. Might be 24th if you are in the northern hemisphere.
😂 What a fun post, and so true! Morning coffee is a special time of the day for me, a time to relax before work, not to worry about anything else, just talk with my husband or pick up my phone or, if I’m out, to look around at the world around me.
It’s fun to try different preparations but really, just a morning cappuccino for the rest of my life is enough!
Hi Aixa!! I’m so happy you like this one! It’s basically a conversation transcript between me and one of my best friends who was addicted (till yesterday) to soda and energy drinks which I find really harmful to health. Especially if someone drinks them very often and sometimes instead of eating a proper meal! So hopefully, fingers crossed, he will start his day with a caffeine boost (in moderation of course 😁) instead of drinking tonnes of sugar… Speaking of a morning cappuccino… oh, believe me, I am right there with you ☕☕ Cappuccino is life!! A magic potion! Have a wonderful weekend!! Take care 😉
I’m a tea drinker myself… I don’t know why but code coffee fluent make me feel so great. You? Carried away? Lol
