We have mixed feelings about National Coffee Day. On the one hand, we’re glad that this magical liquid is finally getting the recognition and celebrations that it deserves. After all, it’s what gives hardworking people like you and us the strength to face long shifts without murdering anyone.
On the other hand… EVERY DAY is National Coffee Day, for us!
Here are some coffee drinks and cocktails to help you celebrate in style on September 29th.
Or, you know… anytime.
Wait, ‘non-alcoholic’ and ‘whiskey’ in the same sentence?!
Each roast allows you to relish in the distinctive flavor of your favorite type of spirits no matter how early it is in the morning.
Brew around 5 oz of coffee per person, steam some milk and, if you want an extra kick, add a teaspoon of cinnamon when you mix them together. Plus, some on top as a garnish, of course.
Mochas are a special type of coffee drink. They combine the strength of a shot of espresso and the cocoa flavor that never fails to remind you of your childhood.
If you want to treat yourself even more, go on and add some whipped cream!
Is the weather still quite warm where you live? Then a refreshing way to celebrate this special coffee day is to opt for a cold espresso tonic.
Brew two shots (per person) into a glass, add some ice cubes, fill it with tonic water and, for garnish, add a lime wedge.
Were you hoping for something warm and cozy as you’ve already fully embraced fall?
We have an unbe-leaf-ably tasty coffee recipe that’s perfect for these colorful and crisp days.
A friendly homage to our neighbors, our Canadian Maple Whisky Infused Coffee will let you experience the thrill of the Great White North from the comfort of your home… especially when you use it for this recipe.
Brew around 5 oz of Canadian whiskey-infused coffee, mix in a teaspoon of maple syrup and a sprinkle of spices (cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg), and fill the mug with steamed milk.
Finally, add another sprinkle of spices on top.
While we also like to experiment with other drinks and frothy options sometimes, we’ll be honest: to us, coffee is meant to be enjoyed black and unsweetened, because that’s how you can taste all the flavor nuances and uniqueness of each blend or single origin bean.
If you’re used to adding milk and sugar, National Coffee Day could be the perfect excuse to try pure black coffee. You can either opt for your usual automatic dripper and French press, or challenge yourself with something different like AeroPress coffee or manual pour overs.
Which of our coffee drinks are you going to try to celebrate National Coffee Day?
Remember: it’s not being addicted to coffee. It’s extending the coffee day celebrations to the remaining 364.
