Around the World in Coffees: The 2014 Edition
I was originally planning to turn December into Review Month. Because no matter how some other bloggers frown upon year review posts, I love them. I love looking back and being nostalgic. And I love pretending that my life had a certain theme in the past year.
December overwhelmed me though, and I never got around to writing those “best 14 things I ate in 2014” or “best 14 Instagrams of 2014” articles.

But despite missing out the grand review time frame in the blogosphere, there is one annual post that I could never ever leave out, because I look forward to writing it all year: My annual coffees from around the world round-up!
I cherish this little tradition of mine so much and I adore how my life’s perception changes when told through the tales of the prettiest and most delicious coffees I had throughout the year.
I drink a lot of coffee, though naturally, I don’t take a photo of every single coffee I drink: Every morning, I have (at least two cups of) coffee in my favorite polka dot mug on my kitchen table while spending way too much time on social media. At the office, I have a post-lunch cappuccino (I’m sorry for this horrible habit, Italy!) with my co-workers. Sometimes, if we feel fancy, my boyfriend and I have an espresso after dinner. I need a lot of coffee to get by (yup, I’m an addict), but I don’t usually photograph my everyday coffees.
I don’t usually photograph my morning coffee, but I loved the November light on my kitchen table here!
My year retrospective in coffee is my favorite post to write all year, because it makes me remember the little special moments I took my camera with me — on market days, on a domestic weekend getaway, or on the eventual international trip. Even though coffee photos are never really those epic travel photos, they symbolize the little moments I love — at home and on the road. And these were my favorite coffee moments in 2014:
