If there’s something more comforting than coffee, it’s conversation. Put the two together and you might end up something you’ll remember for the rest of your life. I should know— some of my life’s high points happened over coffee. From org meetings to dates lasting day well into the night, coffee shops have served me well. And I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way.
We’ve asked a few people to share their favorite moments over coffee, and buckle up, things are about to get real fuzzy.
“He was way out of my league. Like, Forbes 30 under 30 conference speaker out of my league. It took a lot of courage to ask his for his email and not only did I get it, he asked me out for coffee. We walked around Harvard that night— snow on the ground, coffee in hand, and talking about how we’d own an island together one day.” — Cara, 21.
“She walked with me to get coffee. At this point, I’ve only known Mandy for a week. The moment I opened the door, the barista said “”Hey JC, welcome back! Latte? Non-fat milk?” And I was all, “Yes… iced please.” That was the moment Mandy knew we were gonna be friends.” — JC, 23.
