National Coffee Break Day

“I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.” - T.S. Eliot

It's National Coffee Break Day!

Anyone who's ever worked a 9-to-5 job (especially one they hated) will tell you that coffee... and coffee breaks with fellow coworkers you can commiserate with... can be a saving grace, a pick-me-up, and a serious motivator towards the end of a long day. So can cocaine, but that's illegal, right Michael Scott?

I had a very Office-esque job once and the only thing that helped get me through were the Friday afternoon trips to Starbucks. Expensive yes, but it thoroughly helped with my sanity! Now? With an amazing work-from-home job, I take coffee breaks all day every day. And usually in my PJ's.

Coffee Break Day was started by the National Coffee Association - a trade organization for coffee - in 2011 as a way to celebrate the centennial year. Check out their website for more information.

Happy National Coffee Break Day!
