Oh coffee. Nectar of the gods. One of the things I look forward to most in the mornings (other than waking up next to my hot husband and snuggling my cutiepatootie baby).

I mean really, it’s JUST.SO.GOOD.

When I worked at Starbucks we had a couple of customers and baristas alike who would try and cheat the system by ordering grande coffee in a venti cup and filling it the rest of the way up with milk – to achieve a latte effect that, let’s face it, is really nothing like a latte. But what I never got was why on earth they were drinking coffee that was practically coffee-flavored milk. I’m told I can be a snob about these things. Not that it shows, right?

Anyway, since then I’ve come to understand that sometimes people just want their coffee the way they want it. What a concept! Coffee is one of those things that literally takes on a different personality for every person. It’s like the fingerprint of the beverage world – no two cups of coffee are ever going to be just alike. When I’m not getting my coffee on the go, I’m making it at home, and I always do a packet of Stevia in the Raw and just enough International Delight Coldstone Creamery Sweet Cream creamer to reach ?the color?. You guys know what I’m talking about – ?the color?that your coffee turns that signifies that you’ve added just the right amount of cream to make it perfect. We all have a color, and the cool thing is that International Delight has created a Pinterest board devoted to those perfect coffee colors!

If you must know mine is #19 – Wear Your Coffee on Your Sleeve. Which I do. A lot.

And the fun thing? YOU can find your color too! Just head on over to the Pinterest board and find your perfect coffee color. I’m thinking it can be used for so much more than the perfect cream-to-coffee-ratio signal. I think this color may just be our new home neutral because it’s just so pretty!

Which shade are you? Go to Fifty Shades of International Delight on Pinterest and find and share your shade of I.D.!
