February 26, 2020 ☼ coffee ☼ random
A collection of random coffee photos + where I got them. Most of them can be found here as well. I find it sad that I take lots of daily life photos on my phone but they end up sitting in the cloud for the eternity. So I thought I’d post at least some of the countless coffee photos I have. Compiling these took way longer than I had expected, but it’s nice to see them out here like this :)
