Coffee. You need it. I need it. It starts our day, gets us through the mediocrity of our working hours, and ends a delicious meal. And (pretty much) everyone loves it.
However you take your coffee, you are part of an elite group of everybody (give or take) who cannot live without it.
Because of this, pictures of coffee are all over social media, and sometimes you need the perfect coffee Instagram captions to go with posts you share of your own.
No matter where you’re from, what time you drink it, how you take it, or why you enjoy it, we can all agree that coffee is the most enjoyable necessity of any era.
