The TV beauty cannot function without caffeine.

Sofia Vergara refuses to talk to husband Joe Manganiello until she's had her morning cup of coffee.

The Modern Family star claims she and her fellow Colombians are serious about their caffeine and she cannot function properly unless she has had a fresh brew, so Magic Mike hunk Joe has learned to have a steaming cup ready for his wife - especially if he has news for her.

"He learned way before we got married, if not, he would not have been able to get married to me," Sofia quipped about having Joe learn about Colombian culture on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America.

"The most important things around our life is our coffee (sic), first in the morning," she explained. "He knows he shouldn't talk to me before I had coffee (sic). Sometimes, if he has something important to tell me, he brings me the coffee, leaves the room, and five minutes later, he comes back (to discuss what's on his mind)."

The actress, who will celebrate her first wedding anniversary with Joe in November (16), has even turned her love of good coffee into a business move, after becoming the face and spokesmodel for the Ninja Coffee Bar last year (15).

At the time, Sofia admitted she jumped at the chance to launch the coffee machine with bosses at the SharkNinja houseware company.

"When (CEO) Mark (Rosen) told me about their plans to create the Ninja Coffee Bar, I knew I had to get involved from both a personal and business perspective," she said, before confessing she was more than impressed with the end result, adding, "I never even thought it was possible to make a great iced coffee at home."
