Oddly poetic responses to coffee stains. Plus a lion. And socks.

by Nick (Coffee Detective)

When looking through Twitter and Facebook for people’s reactions to coffee stains, I was expecting to find lots of anger and frustration. The damn and blasts of spilling coffee on the way to work. That sort of thing.


Strangely, while there were a few car spill stories, most of what I found about coffee stains was more introspective, almost poetic.

For good measure, I have added even stranger entries about a lion, and socks.

# I dont put away the dishes cos theyre all my dishes. Or the dishes in the dish rack. Or the food & coffee stains on the counter

# I think I would be fine with coffee rain - even considering the potential clothing stains .

# Like coffee stains splattered on you sweatshirt, there isn't any pattern.

# Coffee stains are the story of my life

# Love is like a coffee coaster. It takes the heat of passion, the bitter coldness, the stains of past spills, and serves as a cushion when you need rest.

# Amazing how much like watercolour the coffee stains look. Beautiful. As a coffee-lover I love the idea of using it for art!

# Many thanks for your advice, minions, the coffee stains are all gone. Now how do I get lion blood out of a Stone Table?

# Socks: noun. Used by slobs to absorb coffee stains on cubicle desks, whilst still wrapped 'round their foot... and no one is else is 'round.
