3. You use more than six words to order your drink…

4. …but at your local coffee shop, you don’t have to say anything at all.

6. You think it should be legal to punch people who say “expresso” square in the face.

8. You could watch this GIF all day.

9. Commercial coffee chains are almost always the last option.

Exception: when traveling somewhere you don’t know the best places to get coffee — then they’re a haven.

What? They’re artists.

12. Milk? In coffee? You’d rather stab yourself in the eye with a stirrer.

13. Yeah, you grind your own. Obvi.
