Greek Goddess Artemis, Roman goddess Venus

 

The Roman Goddess Caffeina

 

Caffeina, Goddess of Energy and Clear Thinking

The patroness of coffee, tea, and other caffeinated drinks or foods, Caffeina is the Roman goddess of energy, stamina, and determination.

 Usually portrayed as a beautiful woman rising from a coffee cup, Caffeina gives clear thought, energy and creativity.

Is Caffeina for real? Or is she a 'found goddess'?

Frankly, I don't know. Coffee was 'invented' in the Middle East, though it easily would have made its way to Rome. And I haven't been able to find a truly authoritative source that really mentions a goddess Caffeina specifically, so I have my doubts about her presence in antiquity.

      

                         


But I depend on her helpful influence in my life nonetheless


 

A Modern Ritual to Honor the Goddess Caffeina*

    Stand, facing east, holding a small cauldron (cup), filled with the mystical brew,
    in your power hand, and assume a posture of wakeful alertness.    
Bring your coffee cup to your forehead and intone: "LATTE"
    Lower your coffee cup to the vicinity of your navel: "MOCHA"
    Bring your coffee cup to your left shoulder: "CAPPUCCINO"
    Bring it across to your right shoulder: "ESPRESSO"
Put the cup to your lips. Take a big swig, and chant:
    "OH, GODDESS,  I NEEDED that!"
