Wondrous Words Wednesday

April 18, 2018

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love.  Feel free to get creative!   If you want to play along, grab the button, write a post and come back and add your link to Mr. Linky!

I found one new to me word in CLASS MOM by Laurie Gelman.

1. breve – “After picking up a shitload of prunes, some Ezekial bread, coconut water, and kale, I head next door craving the double breve I’m going to revel in.”

Most people are probably familiar with this word but I’m not a coffee drinker so I had to look it up.  Caffe Breve is an American variation of a latte: a milk-based espresso drink using steamed half-and-half mixture of milk and cream instead of milk.

    Starbucks is such a major contributor to our language! A breve does sound like a very rich drink.

    I’m not a coffee drinker either so I had no clue what that word was.

    I don’t drink coffee either. So I was out of luck.

    I am a coffee drinker and I’ve never heard of that…but maybe I’m not fancy like that (lol) – my coffee optioins are usually black or not black. http://jhohadli.wordpress.com

    I am a coffee drinker, but I didn’t know this word. But these days, I drink my coffee black.

    I love coffee. I only know about Folger’s or Maxwell. Never heard of breve.

    I enjoy coffee but haven’t noticed breve. I’ll watch for it!
