your morning cuppa


a couple of my local cafes go so over the top in describing their coffees that i feel like i've just met someone by the time i've filled my mug. one is touted as 'sultry and abolitionist', another is 'trustworthy', yet another 'dark and fomenting'. my favorite, the free state blend, is a 'spirited and independent brew that will do you proud'. i was so impressed with their ability to humanize a hot beverage that i couldn't resist coming up with an outlandish blend of my own. so, enjoy a cup on me today, all. may it take you somewhere unexpected :)

Are you gunning for a new day job? Cuz I tell ya, you'd win it hands down. And you'd provide your own artistic sign to boot. Can't beat that! Ooooh, do you feel that? That's all the baristas in Lawrence quaking.

Honestly, Aimee, this is BRILLIANT! What a fun way to start your day. With a cup o' wayfarer. I'm drooling over your lettering. Tell me. Do these different brews actually live up to their names?

haha, yeah, you wonder what some of the folks who write these things are drinking!! this is a good one though - i think you might want to start your own business here.

i think i'd like to try your wayfarer blend! it sounds perfect for imaginary types like us, who would like to begin the day with open interpretation. :)

for some reason, bloglines isn't picking up on your blog's feed. and at first i was wondering, where's aimee been? you're here. thank goodness!

glad you all enjoyed the cuppa; i enjoyed devising the blend! bella, their coffee is actually pretty lousy. i just have them dump a few shots of espresso in it until i'm so wired i can't tell the difference!

can't drink coffee anymore, only water....but still adore the aroma.

see you there! said...

I'm pretty picky about my coffee but your description would hook me in to try a cup of "Wayfarers".
