Legal Bits


I’m just a coffee loving graphic designer from Michigan. I’m not a doctor, and I don’t even play on one TV.

So, when you read posts and advice and recipes I’m handing out here, please use your own good sense. I cannot be held responsible for every possible thing that might go wrong when you try out a new recipe or use a new coffee making accessory.

Basically, what I’m saying is this. Life involves risk. Please use caution when cooking, making (and drinking) coffee, and using kitchen tools.

Also, your coffee may be hot, so be careful. It’ll hurt if you spill it on you.


So, the FTC wants me to let you know a few things about how I make money on this site. This website, Ode to Coffee, has ads on it. Most of the ads you see on this site are directed towards my Zazzle store, Gifts for Coffee Lovers, which sells designs with coffee quotes and coffee sayings on them.

I also have some affiliate links that appear occasionally in posts I share on this website and on social media. What does this mean? When you click on the link and make a purchase, I’ll receive a small commission from the vendor. But, rest assured, I’ll never recommend something I haven’t personally used and recommend.

Sometimes I share affiliate links to the stores and products of fellow Zazzle designers I love. Again, I’ll make a small commission if you do decide to buy something, and the designer will earn a royalty. But my primary goal is not to make a sale but to share what I love or am inspired by.
