National Coffee Day

There are only a few foodie holidays I like to celebrate or even point out.  Every day is a different food day if you google it.

But seriously: Here is a list of “National Foodie Days” incase you ever wondered.

Anyways National Coffee Day is a “Holiday” I will celebrate proudly.  Most people know I drink a lot of coffee but what they don’t realize is a lot of it is decaf.  I truly enjoy the taste of coffee but honestly don’t need or want that much caffeine every day.

Personally I love the taste of coffee.  Whether it’s decaf, flavored, with lots of cream or minimal…I enjoy coffee a lot! I don’t discriminate.

My current favorite coffee is obviously the seasonal pumpkin spice with whipped cream.

Why the whipped cream?  As you drink the coffee, it gets more creamy (since the whipped cream melts).  It’s more bitter at first and then creamy towards the end.  It’s the perfect combination in my opinion.

Here is a list of deals you can score today.  **Plus my favorite gas station Wawa is giving out free coffee all day too!

In summary by writing this post I learned the following:

  • Coffee was first discovered by research in Goats
  • Coffee was originally eaten in the form of berries.  Hashtag coffeeberries

And of course no National Holiday would be complete without the memes.

  1. Love the coffee memes! I love coffee with a little caramel creamer in it most of the time, but I love the seasonal drinks at starbucks. My favorite right now is the salted caramel mocha!

  2. I am pretty sure I cannot function without it. I’ve tried to give it up before but always go back. I like the taste of coffee too and really enjoy decaf americanos if I just want something to warm me up. Mostly though, I just drink it black.

  3. I’m the same in that I like the taste of coffee – as long as it has lots of cream and some sugar 🙂 I ONLY drink decaf and get offended when people put it down -ha!

  4. I once overheard a conversation where one person said that no one REALLY likes the taste of coffee and only drinks it for the buzz. It took all I had to jump in and say that I adore the taste of coffee and will happily drink decaf just to get my fix. Love coffee. Too much.

  5. i am so not a coffee drinker i just cant get on board with the bitter taste. i do love getting a pumpkin spice steamer though (basically hot milk with the pumpkin spice flavor).

  6. I just recently started drinking coffee and I am in love. I am currently loving the Dunkin Doughnut chocolate glazed flavored. Have a great Coffee Day

  7. My wife and I are coffee snobs, we freely admit it. We used to drink the store brands and other national brands that will go unmentioned.
    We have one of those Cuisinart machines that grinds the beans for each pot.
    I have come back from a Sunday long run and found that my wife drank an entire pot by her self!
    Our favorites are Peete’s and Starbucks. Dunkin makes a better iced coffee than Starbucks, but I avoid their hot coffee. Micky D’s makes a good ice coffee also.
    We are both purist and do not like flavored coffee.

  8. The first thing I do each and every morning is make a Starbucks morning blend coffee! One of my other favorites is a grande vanilla soy latte 🙂

  9. I need to start writing “drink coffee” on my to-do list! Ha! I love all these memes. And I love that we got to get coffee today!

  10. I love coffee too and couldn’t agree more that the whip cream gets creamier as you drink it. I just wish it burned calories eating it instead. 🙂
