Last February 14 we had our first coffee loveapalooza and posted 22 photos of coffee love from fourteen caffeinated contributors. It started here, at coffee cup 122. I think an encore performance is called for, so calling all coffee love photos. Interpret as you wish, just send me your great photos and we’ll see what kind of fun we can muster up. xo
Hey caffeinated conspirators…I am hoping to
inspire entice convince you to take a few pictures of your delicious (or not so delicious, we’re equal opportunity coffee drinkers here) coffee to me. We’re on the home stretch to 1000 cups, and I am feeling just a tad over caffeinated at the moment. Can you help a sister out? Email coffee to firstname.lastname@example.org, or point me to your flickr stream. Thanks!
Jade Keller, Thailand. Jade moved to Thailand last year and her website is Tasting Grace.
She’s doing some pretty interesting stuff, you should visit her. I’ll be she’ll make you a cup.

“breakfast and coffee in pescadero, ca this past saturday morning. we camped near stanford then rode out to pescadero for food and a view of the ocean– and picked up some famous artichoke bread!
Brooke’s illustration blog Miss U, Love U, and her Etsy shop is Team Blue Bicycle. And of course, her Flickr photostream is here and her portfolio here. And I am pretty sure you can find her and her bike, Homer, at any of Oakland’s fabulous coffee shops.
Reina, Davis CA (Mishka’s Cafe).
Reina and I met for coffee a few weeks ago. We took our lattes outside to the sidewalk and both pulled out our cameras before we sat down. These are mine. But hers….they always inspire me. That’s why she’s the Goddess of the Macro.
Reina is a UC Davis grad student. Her (inspiring) Flickr page is here.
Hi there, and welcome to my little world of traveling coffee. We had quite a bit of excitement over the weekend when WordPress featured coffee|served daily on Freshly Pressed, and a gazillion hits ensued. Even more exciting, lots of new subscribers and contributors. So if that’s you, happy to meet you.
Let me get you some coffee…it will be just a moment. So while we’re waiting, I have a few questions. I started this project in January and have had a blast, but I am making it up as I go. Can you help me figure out the rest?
- How much is enough? I usually post two coffees in the morning and one or two in the afternoon. I like each coffee to have its moment above the fold, you know. Is two plenty, or do you like four? Would you prefer to see them all at once, or do you come back and view several at a time? Do you show up once a day, twice a day, or once every few days?
- Art, too? So far, I have just featured coffee photos, with a few art pieces by photographers who happen to have a few drawings. I don’t seek out coffee paintings or illustrations. But I do love them. Would you like to see more?
- Everyday coffee vs. coffee as performance. Most of the coffee photos come from folks I know in real life, or through Flickr and this blog. There are a few photos I loved on Flickr, and then contacted the photographer. Some of those folks (hey Lana!) have become friends. But in general, I am trying to balance real life coffee (the cups we take with our iPhones) with staged, beautiful, inspiring cups. How’s that working for you? More street shots, or should I be seeking more professionally shot cups? Or is the balance a good thing?
Hey, the coffee is ready. Leave me a comment if you have an opinion on any of the above (or anything else, because that’s what coffee conversation is about, isn’t it?). Thanks for coming by, come again, and don’t forget your coffee photo…we have 800 more to go, plenty of room for everyone.
