How to use hot beverage emoji
Want to ask a friend out for a coffee? Perhaps you just want to suggest meeting at a cafe? Well the Coffee emoji has you covered. Beyond suggesting a hot drink however, this emoji can be used in other creative ways. For example, it can suggest that someone needs to wake up or be more aware. For example, you see one of your friend drifting off in class. You could message something like: Wake up and smell the ☕. Sequencing potential for this symbol is pretty good overall and with another food item, can suggest different flavours of drinks. In the case of hot chocolate for example, you could message a chocolate bar next to the emoji. If your friend was ordering you coffee and you wanted milk in your drink then you could just do something like: ☕🥛
