Coffee, You're My Only Friend refers to a series of exploitable webcomics based on a six-panel comic by RaphComic. The comic sees a person talking to their coffee, however, when the coffee reveals to intense a truth, the person pours some milk in the coffee to get a lighter take on the subject.
On August 26th, 2017, RaphComics published a six-panel webcomic on Facebook,  Twitter,  Tumblr  and Instagram.  Within two months, the Facebook post had garnered more than 480 retweets 2,600 shares and 120 comments.
Four days later, on August 30ths, a variation of the meme was posted to Imgur . In this version, which utilizes racist stereotypes of Indian Americans and African Americans, the coffee says "fuck white people" instead of "friends are meaningless in the landscape of time" and "send bobs and vagene" instead of "friends remind us that we're not dead." The post (shown below, left) received more than 230 views before being taken down.
On October 16th, Redditor  rcmaehl posted a variation in the subreddit /r/pcmasterrace. The post features the coffee saying "you don't need an i7 [processor] to game" and "The i7 provides better FPS than the i5." Within 24 hours, the post (shown below, center) received more than 19,000 points (88% upvoted) and 900 comments.
That day, Redditor SuperscalarMemer posted a variant in the /r/ProgrammerHumor subreddit.

The post (shown below, right) received more than 20,000 points (89% upvoted) and 1,100 comments in 24 hours.
