Long before SNL’s “Coffee Talk” and the days of Starbucks opening a new store every workday, coffee has been the darling of American culture.
We grind it, we brew it, we savor it hot, iced, blended, dark, light, high octane or decaf.
We learn the origins of our favorite beans and the differences between lattes, cappuccinos, and macchiatos.
We take it black, or with sugar and cream – steamed, foamed, almond, or soy.
We indulge in coffee drinks with cute titles and nickname it like our favorite cousin: Joe, Java, Brew, Mud, Jolt.
We crave coffee. We love to share it, talk about it, photograph it, and proudly claim our dependence on it. And where better to do this than social media?
If you’re looking for a place to share your love of – and addiction to – your favorite beverage, look no further than Facebook.
Are you into cars, chiropractic, or country music? There’s a coffee group for you.
Looking to share a carafe in Costa Rica, Colorado, or Cincinnati? There’s a coffee group for you.
Since we can’t possibly list ALL the coffee groups social media has to offer, here are twenty-one of the most popular and most active caffeinated groups on Facebook:
