Those who are close to me know that I drink quite a bit of coffee. It’s not the caffeine I crave, it’s the warm, delicious beverage, stored in a bright ceramic cup, held tight in my hand while inhaling the rich aroma.

However, I went to a dietitian last week, and she told me what I have known (and ignored) for a long time: I drink far too much coffee (6 cups on average) and entirely too little water (3 cups max). Since my appointment, I have not had a sip of my dearly beloved coffee and have downed about 14 cups of water a day (seriously!). In a sad farewell to my coffee obsession, I thought that I should appropriately dedicate a post to coffee tables, which I find quite lovely. They can add so much flare to a room with the smallest touches. {m} has created the most beautiful display on ours! I’ll also note that I plan on writing/designing a coffee table book one day, just like Emily’s Cupcakes and Cashmere: The Book

    In the early 19th century, there were two different uses for the name cup cake or cupcake. In previous centuries, before muffin tins were widely available, the cakes were often baked in individual pottery cups, ramekins, or molds and took their name from the cups they were baked in. This is the use of the name that has remained, and the name of “cupcake” is now given to any small cake that is about the size of a teacup.*^

    Coffee is a brewed beverage with a distinct aroma and flavor, prepared from the roasted seeds of the Coffea plant. The seeds are found in coffee “berries”, which grow on trees cultivated in over 70 countries, primarily in equatorial Latin America, Southeast Asia, India and Africa. Green (unroasted) coffee is one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world.:

    All the best to you
