Kaley Cuoco kicked the day off with the Starbucks brand she fronts on Thursday. The “Big Bang Theory” actress made headlines earlier this year for being the coffee giant’s new celebrity face – with an Instagram series entitled “A Cup of Cuoco,” the 34-year-old was likely a no-brainer for executives over at the ‘Bucks.
Kaley’s 5.9 million Instagram followers received an upbeat update today as the sitcom star updated her account. The photo showcased the blonde’s natural beauty, it featured one of her dogs – of course, Kaley’s first caffeine fix came courtesy of Starbucks.
Kaley’s photo showed her smiling for the camera as she cozied up to her dog Ruby on a sofa with a fluffy blanket and chocolate-brown cushions. The California native was sending out her biggest grin, seen holding an owl-decorated mug as she rocked a hot pink nightshirt – nightwear is now a part of the star’s identity with Kaley having rocked the apparel to formal events, also announcing earlier this year that she “only rehearses” in nightshirts.
The clothing item deemed an Amazon “essential” by the star was printed with color – plenty more was seen as Kaley looked fresh-faced, likely wearing a little blush and lipstick.
A caption from Cuoco shared more.
“Still sticking with my ☕️ morning routine …I roll out of bed in my nightshirt and ❤️ to enjoy my @Starbucks Caramel Crème coffee at home. I hope that you are holding on to some of your daily rituals! #StarbucksSunrise #ad #ilovecoffee.”
Racking up over 36,000 likes in just 43 minutes, the update appeared to be a hit.
“This is the Big Bang Penny I wanted to see,” one fan wrote.
“I would, but it’s only 1 p.m. I get up at 2,” another added with a cry-face emoji – likely referring to their possible quarantine situation.
Speaking to Us Weekly in mid-March, Kaley outlined a rather painful-sounding preference regarding her caffeine fix.
“I’m a self-proclaimed coffee connoisseur. I love all things coffee,” Cuoco stated, also revealing what constitutes the perfect temperature for her.
“It has to burn my esophagus,” she continued. “And I froth the milk and I’m very pleased.”
“The first thing I do I wake up in the morning is I turn it on. I like the smell. I like the whole process. It’s just part of my routine. I can’t even think of a morning where I haven’t had a cup or where I’ve missed it. I don’t forget to have a cup,” the star added.
Prior to COVID-19 halting production of Kaley’s upcoming HBO Max series “The Flight Attendant,” the star made headlines for her “instant coffee nightmare” as she filmed in Italy. An early morning start seeing both her hotel’s breakfast area and local coffee shops still closed saw Kaley encouraged by staff to use the “coffee machine” in her room.
Discovering that the “machine” was nothing more than an electric kettle and instant coffee sachets, Kaley experienced somewhat of a meltdown – “offended” was her take. Fortunately for Kaley, her dedicated crew set her up – surprising her – with a Nespresso machine.
