Five things that aren’t the same with­out cof­fee

Sub­scribe with the QT and score a Ne­spresso Inis­sia

The Queensland Times - - NEWS -

SOME things just shouldn’t be done with­out a cof­fee. Ask any­one.

To cel­e­brate In­ter­na­tional Cof­fee Day to­mor­row (Oc­to­ber 1), we’ve made a quick list of five things that just wouldn’t be the same with­out a warm cup of the good stuff.

Mid-morn­ing cake: If your kind of in­dul­gence is a 10am sweet treat, then you’re nuts if you’re not pair­ing it with a cof­fee. The cof­fee seems to make the sugar feel less naughty, so it’s al­most good for you, right?

Meet­ings: If you’re about to head into an hour-long meet­ing and you’re go­ing in un­armed with no cof­fee, then are you even alive? No good ideas came from a meet­ing with fraz­zled brains and short tem­pers.

Gos­sip catch-ups: Meet­ing a girl­friend for a cof­fee is the best way to get the low­down on all the hap­pen­ings within your so­cial cir­cle and be­yond. There’s just some­thing about the warm caf­feinated bev­er­age that makes peo­ple spill the beans… Plus, ‘pop over for a water’ just doesn’t have the same ring as ‘pop over for a cuppa’.

Mar­ti­nis: Ha! You’re still drink­ing or­di­nary mar­ti­nis? Haven’t you heard espresso mar­ti­nis are life? That’s what all the cool kids are say­ing any­way.

Read­ing the news­pa­per: There is noth­ing more re­lax­ing than wak­ing up to a warm cup of cof­fee, some morn­ing sun and flick­ing through the news­pa­per. There just isn’t.

Lucky for you, you can get your­self a Ne­spresso Inis­sia cof­fee ma­chine with your 12-month dig­i­tal sub­scrip­tion to the Queens­land Times and week­end pa­per de­liv­ery for just $299 un­til Oc­to­ber 13.

That also in­cludes un­re­stricted ac­cess to the Courier Mail+/Daily Tele­graph+ news sites – a to­tal value of $525!
