14. No sugary coffee drinks in 2014
No sugar. No syrups. But your cafe still has peppermint – you won’t last long.
13. Stop buying new coffee equipment
12. Walk to your favorite cafe instead of driving
But it’s so cold. And your favorite cafe is seven miles away. Where are those keys?
11. Read a book in a cafe
You will bring a real, honest, paper book in a cafe and read! Wait, first Instagram that drink, because that’s a resolution too, keep a diary of all your drinks. Wait, someone tweeted something snarky to you. Whoa, look at that funny cat on BuzzFeed. Huh? What book?
But yo, certain cafes need to learn that pump-operated coffee carafes take too long and daddy hates to wait.
9. Only three coffees per day
You made it through lunch but you’ve got five more hours. What’s one more?
8. Will make coffee at home
Dust off that French press and start your morning off right. Or sleep in? Sleep in.
7. Make more of an effort to expand your coffee horizons
Join that subscription service you’ve read about… check out that cafe at the edge of town… or just go to the office. You’re already late.
6. Get more sleep
See broken resolution #9.
5. No kouign-amanns
Those devil pastries that are sweeping the nation – you won’t enjoy their sweet and savory salty caramelly crunch anymore. But there’s one left in the pastry case. It’s giving you sad eyes. No one will know.
4. No more hang-over / sunglasses / 7am / walk-of-shame coffee at your local cafe
Not where they know your name. You won’t stoop to that level. But it’s so close. And that cappuccino is so warm.
3. Hand grind everyday
Bust out that Hario Skerton and get a little exercise, right? Yeah, that’s the ticket. Hold on, how many minutes does it take? Meh…
2. No more to-go cups
You will bring your re-usable cup with you. Where is it? Your car? Wait, what’s in it? Is that a peppermint mocha from a few weeks ago? Did something just move inside it? That paper cup is compostable, right?
1. Stop wasting time with internet coffee listicles
