A tremendous thank you for this @galenkp.
This is awesome!
It's a great opportunity for community members, and everyone across the blockchain.
I'm excited and looking forward to reading all the entries.
I've got a good feeling about this 😍

 22 days ago  

I hope a few got involved as I think it's a great opportunity to share a story, engage with the community and to put oneself in front of others that may not normally see one's posts. You know, grow one's account.

 22 days ago  

I totally agree.
Coffee is the heartbeat of many, so I hope everyone will get writing.

Coffee is the heartbeat of many, so I hope everyone will get writing.

this is not self-automated thing, imo.... there are tremendous subjects that are getting close to zero response. A good PR and raising awareness do matter!

 22 days ago (edited) 

Milly -- this is excellent!!! reblogged to raise awareness. And its definitely a good kick to my ass to write the post that I started and postponed for ages :P

I've got a good feeling about this

exactly. 🧚‍♀️

 22 days ago  

Hey qwerrie, cheers for that!
Yes please! Get your ass into gear!
Hopefully more reblogs will spread the word;-)
The days are counting!!

 22 days ago  

last week was terrific for me (in terms of time), I had 3 project dedlined for it, and managed to complete only 2 of them. So, all the weekend I am sitting at home adnd trying to shoot the 3rd one. (the book about fish, snakes and frogs - I am editing the pictures). Hope the next week will be more ok for me, and I promise, I promise (for myself) :))

 22 days ago  

oh dear! A book about snakes!! I hope never to see it.😫
Frogs and fish sound interesting though.
I hope you get some time to complete all projects, write a post for the contest, and get to put your feet up! and more;-)

 22 days ago (edited) 

its about all the reptiles, to be precise,- newts, snakes, crocodiles, frogs. this stuff. not specifically about the snakes. a popular science reading, quite interesting. I think when the publisher will print it, I will take a free copy and read it with my daughter (she is extremely in love with froggies). and then I will return it back - we dont have a rubber house, the number of books that I can keep now is limited :)

 22 days ago  

your expression is so funny 🤣
I can do any other reptiles, just not snakes!
I'm sure your daughter would love that;) Some kids some frogs. I recall pouring salt on frogs in Jamaica.

You make me want to think of a contest I'd want you to announce.

Something like this DAyeees..?

G-Dog says...

Someone's got to develop a badge for most creative comment.

What about the most creative title?

Fuuuu Q dude!

Okay, Okay, chill dude. How about the most creative opening sentence? Would that work for you?

Haha! YOU win!!!!

Happy Dance..!!

I think you need to add some letters.

 22 days ago  


Yeah, you make me think of you thinking of a contest you'd want announced. I'm wondering encoded enquiringly daringly. What would that be?

I don't know but if Galen announces it, it'll be a hit like wake & bake.

I thought you weren't allowed in the kitchen to bake, awake or wake.

That would be nice of you brother

Love this! What a fabulous community! Coffee definitely deserves it's own community. And contest

I like talking about coffee probably more than I like drinking it.

I am a 20% er. Meaning I only dabble with the Java a few days of the week at best.

Since my discovery of the monster java iced coffee drink. I have grown into more of a coffee drinker out on the road.

Does the Monster drink even count as coffee..?

I may join in on this one. Time permitting as I am working this weekend with a delivery Sunday morning in a city called Ocala, FL. 100 miles or so south of home.

 22 days ago  

I wonder if they use Java beans there as assuming from the name Java! How would you describe the taste?

Very coffee like. The Swiss Mocha is my fave. It Has a hint of chocolate.


 22 days ago  

Oh yeah, mocha used to be one of my favorite. It is a combination of espresso,chocolate, and milk! the cats look cute !

They said "Meow."

Loosely translated that is Kittenees for Thank You...

haha! How's that can be possible ?! 🙃

You could make it all pretty in a special cup, throw in some ice, maybe a touch of some other things, um, well, I'll stop there, since you get the idea.

That's even better, just don't scald scorch yourself.

 22 days ago  

I hope you'll join in mate, and don't worry about whether the energy drink fits in or not. It's got coffee right? So works. I hope you'll get involved. Please read the guidelines though. 😊

Thank you. For being you and for being understanding. I really like making new friends and keeping them, but sometimes... things just get too much - sigh - but I'm trying 😀

 10 days ago  

Do what you can do, that'll be enough.

Great idea for a contest @galenkp, who doesn't have a story like this? I'll put my efforts into coming up with a fitting story for it.

@moon-city, got any good coffee stories you'd love to share? 😉

 22 days ago  

Thanks Nine, I look forward to your entry. Thanks for your support.

You're most welcome!

Nine! This is a very heartwarming topic. ❤
I used to go to coffee shops a lot before and I had a purple cappuccino (it was made out of taro). The color really threw me off at first but it tasted very good. I checked my photo gallery and sadly I could not find a photo 😔 😕.

Moon! Purple cappuccino??? Okay, that tops all the kinds I've ever had. I've eaten taro but never had it in coffee. I'll have to look for that online. 😂

Hahahha indeed. It was purple colored. I believe they use taro powder to get the color or taro extracts. First I had taro was in bubble tea. Apparently that same place makes taro donuts too (purple colored too LOL) but I sat out on that one

Taro's been a thing for a while. The colour would be good for marketing.

Yup thats how that specific place got the buzz around the city.

Oh yeah, there it is, same old, same old. 😂

Wow! I never knew about this community. The contest will bring light to it and also a great quality content too.

Now I will think with what I can come forward about coffee. 🤔

Blessed Sunday 🌷

 22 days ago  

I'm looking forward to your entry. Please follow the guidelines for eligibility.

You're welcome, and I look forward to reading your posts.

Very interesting your post @jongcl, I realized several things. 1.- There are people who love coffee more than me. 2.- There is a coffee that looks like ice cream in a glass, and 3.- I am not the only one who eats cake with coffee with milk. That chocolate cake looks great with coffee with milk.

Awee thank you for visiting my blog @isabelpena 😘 I love the way how coffee connects me to the people dear to me like family and FRIENDS and how my alone time is better because of it!💜 Haha yes there is! Though the whipped cream is unhealthy but it's satisfyingly yummy, you should give it a try some time😍 YES TO COFFEE WITH MILK AND CAKE! ALWAYS🙌
Cheers to you~!☕️



Hi @galenkp , interesting contest. How about a post with something artistic inspired by coffee? Does it qualify for what you are looking for in this contest?

 19 days ago  

That would work provided it has a strong coffee-angle. You'll still need to meet the guidelines though, as you'll find in this post.

Of course. But it sounds interesting the exercise of how to mix art with these rules... let's see if I can come up with something....

I have two days...

Lemon Cinnamon Coffee ... the first time I tried cinnamon coffee I loved it and thought it was something you couldn't mix. But the lemon really leaves me in awe because it is something I can least think of binding. But I have to test to be able to tell if I like it or not. Thanks for sharing your coffee @antikus369

 18 days ago  

Yes. The combination of cinnamon, lemon and coffee is a classic!

My thought right now: "how can I win this"? 🤔🤔🤔

 19 days ago  

Write a post better than everyone else's and you'll win. 😀

There you go. Whipped up a post for you....

.... think it was because I was super fuelled by a coffee and an almond croissant...
