The world of dreams is complex, but within that stormy ocean of interpretations and meanings, some of them concern us directly: dreams related to coffee. Have you ever woken up with the memory that you have been drinking coffee or using a coffee pot while sleeping? Would you like to know what it means and what is hidden in your subconscious when you dream of coffee?
What does it mean to dream of drinking coffee?
Dreaming of drinking coffee is associated with accumulating positive energy, motivation or motives to continue with a project.
Dreaming of drinking coffee alone is not the same as dreaming of drinking coffee with someone. If you are drinking coffee alone in your dreams, some of your friends or loved ones are leaving you behind. Or, at least, you are suffering from that feeling of abandonment.
Dreaming of a cup of coffee
If you dream of a cup of coffee without drinking it, it is a behaviour associated with change and uncertainty. For example, dreams with a cup of coffee are often interpreted as a combination of renewed energy (associated with coffee, as we said in the first section) and stability associated with the cup.
Dreams with coffee and milk
If you dream of drinking coffee and milk, it combines the energy and impact of coffee with the sweetness and specific maternal components associated with milk. It may be an excellent time to open up to new relationships or friendships. You may be attracting other people’s interest without realising it.
Dreaming of a coffee machine
The meaning of dreams with coffee machines is not entirely clear. They tend to resemble or be associated with dreams of coffee machines, like the rest of the situations in this article. Coffee machines usually appear in dreams to complement the conditions we explain here (drinking coffee alone or with others, dreaming of making coffee, etc.).
To dream of brewing coffee
If the dream has to do with the moment of brewing coffee rather than the act of drinking it, it means that you are walking away from something crucial in your life. For example, you may unknowingly leave behind friends, family or loved ones or not give full attention to a project or work activity.
So you know, dreaming about brewing coffee may be a warning that something needs to change in your attitude.
Dreaming about ground coffee
When we dream of ground coffee, it means that changes are coming or you have prospects for change in our subconscious.
Dreaming of grinding coffee (or a coffee grinder) may imply dangers or unexpected changes, which is not necessarily pleasant.
Dreaming of coffee beans
The meaning of dreaming about coffee beans can vary depending on whether the beans are roasted or what is done with them. The most common interpretation of dreaming of coffee beans is to start or initiate an important activity.
Dreaming of spilt coffee
As with salt or other ingredients, dreams of spilt something are often a symptom of bad luck. They are traditionally associated with bad luck, but not everyone believes this speculation.
Dreaming of black coffee: Symptom of good ideas
Black is traditionally associated with loneliness, depression, darkness and not very favourable feelings. But we should also not forget that black coffee is the common name for an Americano (without milk), which is how many people drink it.
The meaning of dreaming of black coffee usually has to do with the boiling of ideas and clarity of thought. If you have dreamt of black coffee, try to put into action all the ideas or projects you have in mind because it is possible that one of them will be good and will hit the nail on the head.
What if I dream of cold coffee?
Cold coffee is usually a symptom of bad omens. Almost nobody likes cold coffee. In summer, sometimes we drink it with ice or from a Cold Brew infusion, but in most cases, if we drink a cold coffee, it is because it was hot before and has cooled down too much.
The meaning of dreaming of cold coffee may be related to a warning or a preparation. There may be bad news waiting for us, and we should be prepared to deal with it properly, without any shocks or drama.
Dreaming of espresso coffee
Espresso coffee is synonymous with energy, verve and activation. If you dream of drinking espresso coffee, interpret it as an alarm signal: you must become active, alert and energised. Don’t relax or take life lightly.
Be careful not to confuse black coffee (i.e. black) with espresso. Indeed, espresso is always black, but not all black coffee is espresso. In addition, espresso can have a layer of cream on top, brown or ochre.
We are not talking here about coffee preparation methods. However, in dreams, colours can be greatly important when interpreting them.
Dreaming of a coffee plantation full of ripe coffee
To dream of a coffee harvest or a coffee plantation is a sign that is usually related to the professional sphere, decisions or economic “harvests” in our life. The dream of ripe coffee is interpreted as the end of a cycle, the sign that a long process is coming to an end. It is time to harvest what it gives us (which can be good or bad, that is another matter).
The meaning of dreaming of a ripe coffee on the bush or in the coffee plantation (i.e. not yet harvested) implies reaping the rewards, usually financial. If you have been busy or stressed about your projects or work for some time, dreaming of picking coffee may mean you will finally get the desired fruit.
What does it mean to dream of a coffee shop?
The meaning of dreaming of a coffee shop is somehow related to coffee. Even so, it does not mean that coffee necessarily appears in the dream. Other people or we can be in a coffee shop drinking any other beverage or in a situation that has nothing to do with the beverage in question.
Therefore, the interpretation of the dream will vary depending on the situation.
Dreaming of being in a coffee shop (or similar establishment, such as bars, pubs or restaurants) is associated with the sleeping person’s fear or rejection of being lonely. It is a symbol of social relationships and contact with peers.
Another issue is the symbol of the dreaded “coffee shop” if we feel lonely and isolated. In this case, the interpretation is negative and can mean a bad omen or unpleasant news.
