There are very few “foodie” holidays I celebrate.
Coffee, however, is one that I do. I drink coffee almost every day. I like the taste. I’m also in the minority that drinks decaf after noon because I want to sleep.
My top 3 favorite places to get coffee are Wawa, Starbucks and a local place down the road. Oh look, even at my wedding, we had a coffee bar.
There isn’t a lot of coffee I don’t like. My favorite way is to top with whipped cream. It gives a little bit of sugar, and the bottom is more creamy since the whipped cream eventually melts into the coffee. So it’s dark and bold at first, then more creamy and “dessert like” at the end.
Want free coffee? Here are a few places celebrating the day.
Wawa: free (any size) coffee today
Krispy Kreme: free 12-ounce cup of coffee and a free glazed doughnut
Dunkin Donuts: Dunkin Donuts is celebrating National Coffee Day and being in business for 66 years. They priced a medium hot coffee for 66 cents on Thursday.
Starbucks: Starbucks is not giving free coffee but will donate a coffee tree for every brewed cup of México Chiapas coffee you buy. Today’s cup can help a farmer’s future.
Finally because who doesn’t like a little bit of history about the beverage they love?
History of Coffee: “According to a coffee history legend, an Arabian shepherd named Kaldi found his goats dancing joyously around a dark green leafed shrub with bright red cherries in the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula.”
