Vampires drink coffee?

Hell yeah, in my world they do!

I am shamelessly addicted to coffee. I love it love it love it! I crave it, I need it. It's like a drug to me. (Wait a sec, it IS a drug to me!) I even love the smell: it makes me stop, inhale deeply and sigh. I have stamp cards for every espresso stand within a 10 mile radius and the baristas know me by name. I drank mochas and lattes for a long time, but now that I'm losing weight I've scaled back to Americano with cream and sugar. Yeah, it's boring but I'm gonna be a skinny bitch again and at least I still get the kick I need.

Of course, I'm loyal to Starbucks since I live in Starbucks-land - otherwise known as Western Washington. But I have also found a delicious German coffee that I special order online. The price actually is pretty reasonable considering it's imported. Here's a link: Dallmayr Prodomo Kaffee at GermanDeli.com 

I'm a huge tea fan, too! If you're ever in Seattle you HAVE to visit the Pike Place Market and pick up some Market Spice Tea. It's strong, but oh so good!

I Googled "vampire coffee" just for fun and found a huge collection of cool mugs at Zazzle.

Just in case you need an extra kick this morning... Here are a few of our favorite Twilight stars gettin' their blood pumpin' with some good old fashioned caffeine!

Hmmm, I wonder if Rob takes cream and sugar...

Ashley and Jacksper

Kellan - A tea man? That's ok, it's all caffeinated.

Taylor - Don't start too young, sweetie, it'll stunt your...er...growth.

Can we see a close-up of Rob's coffee, please?
Yeah, that's the one...whaaat? Dunkin' Donuts?! Oh Rob, you poor deprived man. Come over my house and I'll show you what good coffee is all about.

Speaking of close-ups, can we zoom in on Kellan?
Ohhhhh...yeaaaaaaaah.... thud.

If anyone is still sitting upright near their keyboard, share with us in the comments: Are you addicted to caffeine? Do you prefer coffee, tea or soda? Cream and sugar? Have you ever tried to quit? If so, what happened? What's your favorite brand?

Have a great day and remember... Death Before Decaf, bitches!


  1. I used to have a really bad soda addiction. I would drink about 30 ounces a day. I loved root beer! Oh, and grape! But I wanted to loose weight and get healthier so about 5 years ago I challenged myself to just drink water for one week and I did. After that my body didn't want soda any more. It cleansed itself of the addiction and I still pretty much just drink water. Once in a while I will have a can of all natural or organic cola, which actually tastes a hell of a lot better.

  2. I'm totally addicted to coffee too, although it slightly scaled back when I quit smoking (I still can't think about those delightful three ways -me, my coffee, and my cigarette- without a twinge of regret. I just LOVE American coffee. Where I come from, they make it so strong, it gives you jitters for three days!

  3. I'm late to this post, but goddamn do I love coffee. I worked in coffee shops fresh out of high school and until I was about 24, and sometimes I miss it, that's how much I love coffee. I like my coffee dark and black, but if I'm going out for coffee I'll get a frou-frou drink (vanilla soy latte or caramel macchiato or, if the season is right, a pumpkin spice latte - fuck, those are good), always with extra shots. YUM. Where's my coffee?
