Caffe Americano photo by

Hope you are all enjoying a relaxing and fun Sunday! If you are anything like me then you will indulge in many cups of piping hot coffee and tea. (Maybe iced if it is hot where you live.) This ColorFresh { Café } palette was inspired by the daily Caffe Americano’s I enjoyed last year at the Grand Velas Riviera Maya resort in Mexico.

The mugs were bright blue and the Caffe had the perfect crema, roasted flavor and pick-me-up joy!

What is your favorite hot or iced beverage?

      Thanks Nisrine! I thought so to. The golden browns pair so well with the cobalt blues.

    So pretty – and I’ve never met a coffee drink, warm, cold, or otherwise, that I didn’t like. Except airport coffee 🙂

      Averie, not only is airport coffee pretty bad ~ but it is waaaayyy overpriced!

    I drink tea every morning and afternoon. I love coffee but it doesn’t agree with but once in a while I’ll cave and get a half-caf, iced mocha that is light on the syrup. It satisfies the coffee craving and doesn’t make me feel bad.

    this is a beautiful color palette.

      Thanks Jean! Sounds like you make do pretty well with those coffee cravings. Over the years I have built up a large tolerance. Believe it or not back in college I didn’t drink it at all 🙂

    This color story is so delightful. It sort of reminds me of my trip to Greece!
