$25 Starbucks Gift Card
You are what you eat. Or drink. Feeling like a jolt to jumpstart your morning? How about a double espresso? Health conscious? Try a decaf. Plain Jane? Well, that's what we used to have with the "good to the last drop" of yesteryear.As writers we can learn a little from the escalating popularity in specialty coffees and drinks. We all need fresh ways of describing characters, and boy, does the coffee industry know how to get creative with description. Here's a sampling of what I found. Which one fits you?
- Delicate with a cocoa finish
- Elegant with floral, citrus, and herbal notes
- Exotic and unpredictable
- Pleasingly mild with a nutty complexity
- Light-bodied (don't I wish?)
- Velvet smooth and roasty sweet
- Nutty and smooth
- Hint of acidity
- Balanced and straightforward
- Earthy and full-bodied
- Dense, caramel smooth
- Blunt, smoky, and intense
- Fleeting, floral aroma
- Not for the timid
- Lush and full-bodied
- Bold acidity with a crisp finish
- Frothy and sweet
