These Tweets Perfectly Capture Why Cuban Coffee Is All You Need To Get Through Life

When it comes to coffee, Cubans have the world beat. There’s a reason why Cuban coffee is basically a household term at this point.

Cubans have perfected the art of coffee making so that all you need is one tiny cup to leave you wired all day.


Have you ever caught a Cuban taking a nap or feeling tired? Well…

Wired. All. Day. Long!


Tired Cubans is something that simply does not exist.

But it isn’t all just fun and caffeinating. Some just don’t know what they’re in for the first time.


Kind of a dark joke, sure. But it actually isn’t too off the mark.

You can keep your little 5-Hour Energy Shots.


All the people need are a couple cafectios to get sh*t done.

There is a reason they say, “Once you sip a cafecito, you never go back.”


Yes, they say it. And “they” are the only fully functioning adults.

And that reason is because cafecito’s are pure joy and love in a cup.


????

Cuban coffee is a hell of a drug.


*scratch scratch*

Me: Anybody got any of that cafecito Cubano?

Cuban coffee is the only reason your lazy friend even made it to the club tonight.


Just try a Starbucks Americano and see how far your night goes.

Hint: Nowhere!

Just like the Irish, a little splash of booze can really give a cafecito an extra punch.


Not that cafecitos really need an extra punch but some people just need a little more convincing.

Like, for real though. Cafecitos = Life.


Too. Damn. True.

And once you get your first taste of a cafecito, good luck backing away from Cuban food at all.


Where’s the lie?

19 Photos That Prove Mariah Carey Has Always Been The Queen Of Christmas

@mariahcarey / Instagram

There is just no denying that Mariah Carey is the undisputed queen of Christmas. She has the smash hit Christmas song “All I Want For Christmas Is You” that you’ve already listened for years. She’s always in the Christmas spirit regardless of the time of year. Here is how the most fierce diva has owned the festive holiday for decades.

First, Mariah Carey has her own Christmas package that you can buy for yourself…or your loved one. Whatever.

According to the website, the Christmas package comes with a Mariah Carey 10-inch vinyl picture disc, a “Mariah Carey Merry Christmas” CD (yes, a physical CD), a Mariah Carey cartoon reindeer shirt, a Mariah Carey “All I Want For Christmas Is You” shirt (that’s right, two shirts) and a hand written letter from Mariah Carey.

*updates Christmas list*

She performs her hit song “All I Want For Christmas Is You” all year long.


What even is Thanksgiving?

No, seriously.


Tbh, we all listen to it all year long anyway so it’s our fault.

She’s even turned it into a kids book because why not.


All her little lambies can now have Christmas 24/7/365.

Even her Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade float was Christmas themed.


THAT’S how you brand yourself.

And her house is always Christmas ready before December.


With most people it is really annoying but with Carey it is iconic!

Legit, Santa Claus is her best friend.

Whether she is just checking out some Christmas trees…

…it seems like Carey has Santa Claus on speed dial.


What. Can’t. She. Do!

She literally waits outside for the snow to start falling.

Clearly her mother was a little more relaxed on that sweater rule.

She is always being photographed in front of a Christmas tree.

¡Que precioso!

And, on Christmas Day, she turns right back into baby Mariah — just in time for the presents.


That is if she doesn’t drown in all of her gifts first.


That’s how you do it, ladies and gents.
