NO coffee driven characters.

I started a book last night and it is AWFUL.
One of those books that makes you say "How on earth did this get published?" and I KNOW I could do better". (But I never do).
Note to self:
NEVER EVER create a character whose life revolves around drinking coffee, needing coffee making coffee, carrying around a coffee mug or having long discussions over a cup of coffee.
it is the worst cliche ever

I don't mind a character who likes coffee and needs coffee in the morning.
But is should not be the character's primary drive and it should not define the character.

I hate getting into a book like that. I have trouble putting down a book before I finish it.
I can see your point about the coffee, java lover that I am.
