50 Coffee Quotes and Sayings to Energize You

Can you get up and get going without having a cup of coffee? Many of us seek our caffeine fixes every morning. From the coffee brew on the Arabian peninsula in the mid-15th century to the various creative and artisanal brewing techniques of the modern day, coffee drinking has come a long way. Our list of coffee quotes shows our love for and the global impact of this globally popular drink.

One of the many slang terms for a cup of coffee is a cup of joe. There are multiple theories to explain its origin—one of which stems from a separate term, "average joe," which describes an average man. Thus, the coffee slang describes how it is an ordinary person's drink. Other interesting nicknames for coffee are java, jitter juice, liquid energy, and rocket fuel.

Energize your day as you read our coffee quotes below and exciting facts about this famous drink.

Best Coffee Quotes

Water is essential for human life, but if your favorite drink is just coffee, you will find this report interesting. According to the Fall 2022 National Coffee Association USA Report, 66% of Americans chose coffee as the most frequently consumed drink, while bottled water came in second at 60%. It's a crazy number, but it explains the growing number of artisan and mainstream coffee shops and instant coffee products worldwide, not just in America.

Yet the environmental impact of our coffee habit is far from perfect, whether growing beans sustainably, or the polluting miles clocked up shipping coffee to all corners of the world. Further, coffee in plastic jars, plastic-lined cups, and single-use packaging further adds to the impact of our morning brew. To help, have a read of our tips for zero-waste coffee and grab a reusable coffee cup to carry along to your local coffee shop.

Is coffee also your favorite beverage? Then, brew over the following coffee quotes below during your coffee break.

Relatable Coffee Quotes To Read While Drinking Your Morning Coffee

Do you know you need to nap right after a drink to benefit from caffeine fully? As counterintuitive as it sounds, there's a science behind it. Adenosine fills our bodies as we get drowsy and breaks down as we sleep. Caffeine, on the other hand, competes with adenosine for receptors in our brains. When we take a coffee nap of 15-20 minutes after drinking, we will have more available receptors for caffeine which will block the increasing adenosine2.

Grab a bag of fair trade coffee, and steep in caffeine goodness as you read the following relatable coffee quotes below.
