Once upon a time I didn’t drink coffee. And I’m not talking about when I was a wee child. I didn’t drink coffee for over 40 years. Coffee for me consisted of
I loved the smell of brewing coffee but the taste, not so much.
We went to Seattle when I was pregnant with my oldest with the destination of Seattle’s Best coffee shop on our wish list for my husband ( because the tv show Fraser) and stumbled upon Starbuck’s and it was love at first sight. I was still a non-drinker but I loved the vibe.
Eventually Starbucks came to London, Ontario and opened one in my neighbourhood and my kids went to school.
One day I went to Starbucks with some mom friends and I tried a latte. All of a sudden the world opened up and this coffee thing was my thing. My husband was a total enabler. He loves coffee and he was more than happy to share his addiction with me. Truth be told it just gave him more to do in the morning, he just drinks a huge mug of French press of the boldest coffee he can get his hands on, I drink a latte with a splash of syrup and sprinkles of sugar and chocolate on top.
The mom friends included Martha and Cheryl and now really consist of them with occasional guest appearances from others.
Shocking as it may seem there were no beads for me until 6 years ago. I wore bracelets but not the composable, beauties I do now. But Martha and Cheryl did. Oh how I loved the shiny, pretty beads. Once I jumped on the bead bandwagon #beadsncoffee #coffeeandbeads was born

Today was the unveiling of my Ohm Coffee Collection. It was a BOTM ( bead of the month) for July that I pre-ordered from Perlen. Pre-orders usually work really well from retailers, Perlen included ( they have the pre-order time to organize orders so they all ship on the release date with delivery being really quick) but maybe summer holidays played into my order because it took 6 weeks to get here 😣
This collection was really popular and it has become hard to find.
I have another ohm coffee bead, latte and not a glass ( although there were 2 different latte glass BOTM)
The coffee beans are trollbeads as are the 2 glass beads, the dangle is Pandora and the latte silver is the Ohm beads latte silver which is still available.
It’s fair to say I certainly love all thing coffee now, at least in the bead department.
My latest coffee obsession is iced coffee, it wouldn’t be too hard to create a bead for that, would it?
