So I am sitting here in my armchair, sipping cappuccino and reading all my favorite blogs' updates, and I thought I'll share with you some thoughts on one of my passions - coffee.
I love everything about coffee. The taste of course, but also the smell, the color, the texture of ground coffee beans, the whole process it takes to prepare an exquisite cup of cappuccino, which is my favorite style of drinking coffee, cup and spoon designs, going out to cafes... Caffeine is also a common ingredient in anti-cellulite treatments :) In fact I'm so hooked on coffee that I even bought this quirky little agenda to carry with me in a handbag!
In small print it says 'I think I have enough time for a cup of coffee' :)
My absolute favorite coffee brand so far has to be Lavazza. This Italian company was founded by Luigi Lavazza in the early 1900's and has since established itself as one of the leaders on the European market. There are two main reasons why I love this brand so much: the quality and the imagery. Lavazza has one of the most daring and unique ads out there, you either love them or hate them; well, I happen to absolutely adore their style :) See for yourself:
Each year they publish a calendar to share their most amazing photographs. This year they collaborated with Annie Leibovitz (author of the second photo, other pics are from their 2008 Majestic Queens inspired calendar by Finlay MacKay), so if you'd like to see more of her fantastic shots, visit the calendar's website here.
Are you equally obsessed about coffee or are you a tea advocate? What is your favorite brand?
