Happy National Coffee Day

There are very few “foodie” holidays I celebrate but National Coffee Day is one of them!  September 29 th is National Coffee Day and many participating locations are giving out a free cup of coffee.

Some places you might be able to get your favorite coffee for National Coffee Day are: Wawa, Cumberland Farms, Dunkin Donuts, Tim Hortons, and maybe even your favorite local coffee shop so celebrate National Coffee Day!

It doesn’t matter if you are celebrating National Coffee Day with hot or iced coffee, find your favorite participating shops for more info. Is National Coffee Day better than the first day of fall? Maybe.

National Coffee Day

Why don’t I celebrate most foodie holidays?  Because there are so many, in fact, there is a food “holiday” almost every day…See this master list.  It’s no secret that I enjoy coffee so National Coffee Day is a big deal!

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 afternoon because I want to sleep. Even though every day is “National Coffee Day” to me, having a day makes it more fun.

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. So it’s true, every day is National Coffee Day for me.

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. For National Coffee Day, I’ll probably hit up a few spots including a diner.

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.”

A Day of Memory

September 11th was such a distinct memory in my life. It’s not a day about me or my life but a moment to our country. I encourage my friends and readers to take a moment of silence, however brief, and remember the lives lost, effected and remember that everyone world wide was effected.

Please remember the lives lost saving others, the stories of courage throughout the country and the direction our world has gone after. Please remember that there are people serving world wise to prevent another attack of this caliber.
