Sleeve A Message

Whether your daily coffee habits take place in solace at your kitchen table, in morning rush hour on the freeway, or surrounded by small-talking co-workers in the break room (or all three some days), coffee is what keeps us going. So it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that we can instinctively get a little obsessive, sentimental, and heck, even romantic about the magic, caffeinated bean potion. Here are some of the wisest, deepest, sweetest, and sappiest coffee quotes ever uttered by humans (as well as a few that just made us LOL).
