Chocolate Caramel Brownie Coffee

There’s something delicious about the taste of chocolate, seductive about the taste of caramel, and something comforting about the taste of brownies. Turn it all into coffee, and it becomes liquid gold, baby. Or at least to people like me — the people that appreciate the bitter sweet taste of revenge.

Coffee is my drug of choice, my addiction that I keep to stay sane and afloat in a complex world.

I convince myself I’m a little more sophisticated when I consume this delectable treat and rarity. It becomes easier and easier to pretend that it gives my life more meaning. After all, we all want to feel some level of importance or feel significance throughout our days, don’t we?

Chocolate caramel brownie coffee is the coffee I drink when I need a little help in defeating my woes. It pumps sweet and bitter blood into my veins, seducing my inner demons.

Coffee is my drug of choice — my addiction that I keep to stay sane and afloat in a complex world. It’s my routine and helps me restore order. When I drink the flavored liquid gold, I feel almost invincible and full of hope.

Plain, black coffee for breakfast, liquid gold for my midday pick-me-up — I’ve deserved it.

As if in a trance, I walk into my kitchen and start to brew that treasured, liquid gold. Beep, beep, my bright red Mr. Coffee goes five minutes later.

I pour the brew into my favorite mug and when I take eager sips, I am transported into a fantasy and the mediocrity of my day disappears. It’s an elixir for my soul.

I’m vibrant and lively.

My head is swimming with ideas and brave little antidotes. I’m consumed with a fire and I’m in the mood to see head’s roll. Maybe I’ve lost control, but the taste of bittersweet revenge feels seductive and tempting on the tips of my tongue.
