Tonight as I write this letter, it’s like you are right here with me.


Dear Joe,

Being apart from you is more difficult than I ever imagined. In the morning hour periods of my existence I am reminded of you everywhere I look. My ceiling. My empty stomach. My unsuccessful attempt in staying awake while I check Instagram and Buzzfeed. And they make me ache to be near you again.

I love you with all my heart, I cherish every moment of the five minutes each morning that we spend together after downing my muesli, and I love you even more in the moments when I am drowning in a puddle of never-ending work in the late afternoons. Tonight as I write this letter, it’s like you are right here with me. I feel my hands on your sides, cupping well, the cup you came in. The delicate flavours of your body on my tongue, and your fragrant aroma tickling my nostrils that way that my nose hairs don’t hate.

When I saw you today, I realize my love for you grows deeper, richer, and more compelling as time goes by since I realised I needed something a little stronger than a chai latte in preparation for a 8pm university ethics lecture. Whenever something good happens, you’re the first person I want to turn to while I huddle in a pool of blankets. When something bad happens, I know that I can count on you to take me in your metaphorical arms and tell me everything will be alright with notes of cherry and chocolate.

I’m the luckiest woman in the world because I can truly say that I’m in love with one of the best. There’s not another Chimaltenango java of an orange or red bourbon variety in the world that can hold a candle to you, my darling – Black, with milk, in Filter, Espresso-ed or plunged. And I just wanted let you know that I need you more than even the most heartfelt words can express.

every coffee addict
