Memes And Tweets About Drinking Iced Coffee Have Ruined Any Credibility That Iced Coffee Has Ever Had
The Internet has turned every quirk we as humans have into content. Pizza, Chipotle, water, and wine have all been churned up and spit out into memes and tweets that we beat into the ground until they become unamusing and altogether annoying.
Remember when girls putting their Chipotle order as their bio on Tinder or Bumble was a thing? Or when we started wearing shirts that just said shit like “Fitness & Brunch & Mimos & Coffee”? Even something as innocuous as water has become a popular tweet format that I now find exhausting. Everyday I see a new, wholly unoriginal semi-viral or actually viral tweet that just says something along the lines of “lemon water *heart eye emoji*” or “remember to drink more water you beautiful but dehydrated bitch.”
It’s all awful. The Internet turns everything that is loved into complete shit, and it’s newest victim is coffee. The lifeblood of working people all over the world. Hot, iced, lukewarm, in slushie form or otherwise - coffee rules. I drink 2 to 4 cups a day and Folgers truly had a hit slogan on their hands. I mean they knew what they were talking about when they said that the best part of waking up was Folgers in your cup.
I love waking up because I know I’m just mere minutes away from enjoying my first cup of coffee. But lately I’ve been noticing that people on Instagram and Twitter have become utterly obsessed with telling people about their preferences when it comes to coffee. I see stories on IG and Snap from extremely basic bitches with captions that say shit like “Yes I realize I’m drinking iced coffee and it’s only 35 outside. No I do not care what you think.” And the same goes for people drinking hot coffee in 80 degree weather. I’ve been guilty of it myself.
I’ve tweeted and even blogged about how I like hot coffee even when it’s warm outside and I’m here to apologize. I don’t care what your preference is when it comes to coffee. Drink iced. Drink hot. Drink a cappuccino past 10:30 a.m. despite it being extremely taboo. Enjoy your coffee however you want to enjoy it. Just don’t post about it. There’s no need. No ones life is changing because they found out that you like to drink iced coffee in sub-40 degree weather. We’re oversharing. We’re discussing topics that truly do not matter. And it’s not your fault that this is way you are. It’s the Internet. The Internet has destroyed all things inherently good. I like iced coffee. I like hot coffee. But you won’t see me throwing it on my IG story anytime soon.
