Amy E. December 20th, 2012 Everything about coffee is great, the aroma, the taste, the caffeine, and it complements pastries so well! Paul December 20th, 2012 I love that coffee keeps me going! Wan Hang Lee December 20th, 2012 The smell of coffee, without which drinking coffee would be completely different. Kate December 20th, 2012 OMG, I haven’t tried this place yet but they make CORTADOS!!! Yum. I love the combination of the foam on steamed milk and espresso and a little sprinkle of sugar in the raw. Yum. One of my favorite things on the planet. I love waking up and having the ritual of preparation of coffee in my french press while feeding my little boy and getting us both ready for our days. mmm. coffee. mmm free GOOD coffee. Yea, free good coffee in ASTORIA! Svetlana December 20th, 2012 Coffee is how I blackmail myself to get up for work in the morning! And then make it throw the day to get cozy with a cup in hand.. Jess December 20th, 2012 I know most people feel more awake when they drink coffee, but I just love the smell and the taste! Jill December 20th, 2012 Definitely the caffeine. Simon December 20th, 2012 Coffee, You make me a better person. More spirited, more creative, more interesting, more ALIVE! Yes, you have ensnared me in your roasted and brewed web of dependency…but what a sweet, sweet, smelling web it is. For were you to release me – I know not what I’d do. Daniel R. December 20th, 2012 I like a good sweet cup with a little foam. No need for chocolate or cinnamon. Simple is best. Emily Rios December 20th, 2012 Waking up with a good cup and the smell are what keep me sipping all day. Tanya December 20th, 2012 I love a freshly brewed cup of coffee, and sitting at the counter and savoring every last drop! Especially at Kickshaw because their coffee is amazing! Jason December 20th, 2012 The aroma filling the air as the coffee brews is almost as great as the actual drinking of the coffee Sophie December 20th, 2012 I drink my coffee/espresso black and as a small female I like the sudden shock and respect I get every time I order it that way. Lisa December 20th, 2012 I love how a cup of coffee makes me feel like I’m allowed to take five minutes out of a busy day, wrap my hands around the mug, and just sip away. Leslie December 20th, 2012 I love the morning routine my boyfriend and I have around coffee. Wake up, brew, sit and talk before the hectic day starts. sarah December 20th, 2012 the warmth, the flavor, the ritual, and the extra jolt! Christin December 20th, 2012 How the flavor of it makes for great desserts Hailey December 20th, 2012 The taste and how warm you feel when you drink it :) Michelle December 20th, 2012 the best thing about coffee is the kick of caffeine it gives you in the morning Katherine December 20th, 2012 I love that it is often a mental and physical way to make me feel better. Nothing like a queens Kickshaw. Cappaccino on a cold, rainy day! Corrie December 20th, 2012 It’s both a personal and communal experience with each cup. And the feeling deep in your body when the caffeine starts to take hold tossing you into a place of total happiness. YUM! Thea December 20th, 2012 I love when someone hands you a cup off coffee they prepared just for you. Have a merry and a bright! Sam December 20th, 2012 My love for coffee is endless. I start (and often end) each day with a cup of coffee. A great day has a cup or two in the middle shared with friends or family. A cup of coffee can be the warmth I need to get through the day, or the iced chill to wake up and greet the day! I love supporting coffee stops and shops from the biggest to the smallest, I love to sample the flavors and aromas from around the world. And to be honest, I love the cups, mugs & travel tumblers of every single shape and size. ..and now, I think it’s time for another cup! Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray December 20th, 2012 I love the flavor options!! Kara December 20th, 2012 My favorite part about coffee is the smell! The smell of coffee brewing is the best way to start the day. Heather December 20th, 2012 The caffeine of course! Katie December 20th, 2012 I love the routine of coffee. It’s my favorite way to wake up! Steph M. December 20th, 2012 What’s not to love about coffee? I can’t start my day without it – I need it to wake me up! Zora December 20th, 2012 Amazing range of flavors, all depending on the bean and the roast. (Is it bad that I’m only entering the booze and coffee giveaways?) Kat December 20th, 2012 Warms you up from the inside on a cold day. Or, in the case of the most amazing iced lattes at Queens Kickshaw, keeps you cool on a hot one! Frances December 20th, 2012 I find a well-made cup of coffee to be very comforting. It helps me to de-stress. Sonia December 20th, 2012 What I love most about coffee is that it’s freaking delicious. Susan December 20th, 2012 The way it fills me (however briefly) with love for all humanity. Brit December 20th, 2012 Coffee is the needed jolt in the morning mad dash, the bringing together of friends and family for a brief moment of repose in a busy holiday season, and the warmer-upper during wet and snowy weather . Yael Maxwell December 20th, 2012 I love the way coffee smells! Even if you don’t like the taste, you can’t beat the smell! Katie December 20th, 2012 Hmm, I think what I like most is the smell and the warmth in the morning. The caffeine doesn’t hit me like it used to but it’s still great in the morning Lisa H. December 20th, 2012 I love how it signifies the beginning of each new day…and the taste, and the smell, and everything else about it. Especially if it’s from Queens Kickshaw! J-La December 20th, 2012 Coffee. Where to begin? Warm, awakening goodness. Either hot or cold, with or without milk. Coffee goes with many breakfast items and, to my shock and awe, even with grilled cheese sandwiches. Maria Lauron-Castro December 20th, 2012 The smell, the taste, the warm, fuzzy feeling you get inside your tummy when you take your first sip! Stephanie December 20th, 2012 I love the way it makes my apartment smell.

Lindsay December 20th, 2012 I love its ability to take me from slack-jawed zombie to bright-eyed, focused worker in 30 minutes or less! Stephanie L. December 20th, 2012 Their coffee is creamy with just the right amount of bitterness. Wakes you up too! Julia December 20th, 2012 What I love most about coffee is probably the aroma. What I love about the Queens Kickshaw is that their coffee selection is as good as their beers & ciders! valerie December 20th, 2012 What I love about coffee is how it brings people together. The idea of “grabbing coffee” is casual enough to ask an attractive stranger, or an old friend you want to catch up with. Plus, it’s delicious and energizing! More Comments → Comments are closed.
