"Morning Coffee" (モーニングコーヒー?) is a song by J-pop idol group Morning Musume, released as their first official single on January 28, 1998 as an 8 cm CD. It sold a total of 200,790 copies. In 2004, it was re-released as part of the Early Single Box and again in 2005 as a 12 cm CD. The lead vocalist of the single was Natsumi Abe.

Early on, Tsunku had decided that Kaori Iida was going to be the lead vocalist. Before the recording on the second day, Tsunku changed his mind and told the group that he was going to change the lead vocals to Abe instead.

A re-arranged and re-recorded version of this song was featured as the B-side for Morning Musume's 14th single, "Souda! We're Alive".

It is the only single to feature only the original members (not counting Ai no Tane), as the second generation would join before the release of "Summer Night Town".

Track listing[edit]

The "Ai no Tane" tracks were composed by Hanzō Seiki and Tetsutarō Sakurai. All other tracks were composed by Tsunku.
