I can imagine starting my day without coffee. But I don’t want to think it. Don’t expect me to be productive or in the mood to talk to anyone before I fire up my Keurig coffee maker or drive down to the local Starbucks. If you can relate to this, you are probably part of the 64% of American adults who consume coffee daily.

If you’re running out of captions to put up with the photo of your freshly brewed coffee in the morning or if you’re thinking about opening a coffee shop, posting these images on social media is a smart start. Lucky for you, I’ve compiled this list of coffee captions and quotes you can use when posting photos on Instagram. Let’s do this.
