    an idiom which means you miss somethin like hell

    Hello,

    Is there an idiom or a colorful way to suggest you miss something a lot or miss it like hell.

    For example, owing to the pandemic, you haven't gone to a coffee shop in a long time. You say, "I miss it like..".

    Or an idiom which has the same meaning.

    I really miss that coffee shop.
    I miss that coffee shop like crazy.
    I miss that coffee shop so much I don't know what I'll do.
    I'd kill for a cup of joe at that coffee shop.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    No, generally, I'm looking for an idiom or interesting phrase about "missing something". That coffee shop was just an example.

    For instance, can you complete this?

    I haven't seen my cousin in 5 years. I miss her like...
