As far as fashion statements go, coffee is one that has been around for ages. Shaken, not stirred is so passé now. If you want to make an impression, try black and without sugar.
Whichever part of the world you go to, coffee culture has its roots firmly entrenched in pop culture and celebrity lifestyles. Coffee has been made famous by some of the most popular TV shows in the world, starting with F.R.I.E.N.D.S and the routine gatherings at Central Perk and going all the way to Instagram where coffee gets its own stories from millions of people around the world every single day.
There is a coffee mug for every person and every mood. Your choice of mug tells people a lot about you, even if it isn’t really true. You can have the “Marauders Map” from Harry Potter showing up on your mug, activated by the heat of the coffee; or a neat little slogan on your T-shirt that says, “When I have finished my coffee, then you have my permission to speak”.
Coffee and dating
Going out to get a cup of coffee is possibly the most clichéd yet successful first date ideas in the history of the world. If the date goes well, great! If it doesn’t, at least you had coffee. What you order on the date even becomes grounds for judgment. If you’re lucky enough to have the same tastes in coffee, you can bet that the second date is a little more likely. There’s even a dating app called “Coffee meets Bagel” that is centered on the connection between coffee and dating.
Coffee at Work
Aside from cafe culture, the single biggest recruiter to the coffee fandom is the workplace. Coffee is so easily available round the clock, that nearly everyone can be seen walking around the office with a cup in hand while complaining they can’t get anything done without it. Having a personalized and quirky mug at the workplace is another style statement that catches on pretty quickly at the office.
Coffee Flavoured Everything
Cake, ice cream, cookies and pretty much anything that smells like coffee. In a lot of cases, the thing that gets you about coffee is the power of its aroma to charm you.
You could talk about the different kinds of coffees, the special filter coffee from the South of India, or the differences between light and dark roasts. All of this is part of the new age coffee culture that millennials and gen-Z kids have taken to the level of a fashion statement. Being an educated coffee connoisseur tells people you know how to enjoy the finer things in life.
