This is my order:
Any drink that doesn't taste
Like coffee at all.

My dull sleepy mind
Pour over grounds smell aroma
First sip- instant jolt!

Friday afternoon
We sip the fresh brewed coffee
And dream of escape.

We like the brew cool
With ice cubes in a "go cup"
That's how NOLA rolls

My life in a fog
Right hand grabs a heavy mug
Dark roast rouses me

The usual please;
medium cafe au lait
to get through my day.

Coffee oh coffee
The first great morning taste
Strong and full flavored
You are a taste of home

Thank you, Whole Foods man
For suggesting the French Roast.
It has rocked my world.

A true companion
To clasped hands in fall's first rain
One café au lait

delicious coffee
nectar of the working class
Decaf? Not for me!

Why is there decaf?
In my opinion, that
Defeats the whole point.

even on hot days
I look forward to your smell
not true for all folks

The comfort and solitude
of the morning ritual.
The steaming mug.

i shouldn't drink you;
you make me so jittery,
but you smell so good.

foam extra pumpkin syrup
make it a triple

i thought i told you
my name is renee but this
says, maybe, rainy?

I can't live with you
Blood pressure and acid pain
But can't live without.

This is almost too cute: "milky heart resembles butt"

A cappuccino
When I feel fancy. Sorry
