In celebration of International Coffee Day, we pay an ode to the drink that helps us slay deadlines and survive awkward silences. Below, we list down why coffee is so awesome.
1. It's the dark elixir that fuels you.
Like gasoline to a car, coffee gives you the energy to finish today's tasks like an Energizer bunny. Boost its power by drinking it during these times: 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m and 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
2. It's a quick and budget-friendly alone-time fix.
Me time often calls for spa days, but when you're running low on cash, a quiet moment in a quaint café with a book is enough.
3. It makes everything less awkward.
First dates can be awkward, but with a cup of espresso on the table, conversations start flowing. Plus, it's more laid-back than the usual fancy dinner date.
4. It resolves the problem of not knowing which dessert you should get.
With all the dessert-like coffee drinks in the market, who needs a slice of cake? Be warned, though, because like any dessert, these sugary drinks can make you pack on the pounds, too.
5. Coffee makes you look and feel more intellectual.
Because a cup of Joe is known for being an energy drink, you can appear more serious and ready to take on tasks—even when you're unsure of what you're doing. Coffee breaks also refresh your brain when you find it hard to go through the day.
6. It helps you go.
The bean brew causes the stomach to release enzymes that cause the large intestines to contract, helping you flush out unmentionables.
7. It's the best excuse when you don't want to end the night yet.
When you had a great time during dinner or drinks, you want to continue spending time with your peers or date. By transferring to a coffee shop, you can enjoy longer and more interesting conversations.
