National Coffee Day

Oh this could be my most favorite holiday of all! I am not a big fan of the “real” holidays, but I love the food and beverage days!

Coffee has been apart of my life for a VERY long time. I shared all the details in My Coffee Story.

After you understand where my deep love of coffee came from you’ll see that my other posts on coffee come from a position of authority! Hey, everybody is an authority on something!

San Francisco

Where-to-go-for-Coffee-in-San-FrancisoSan Francisco has no shortage of great places for coffee and my Where to go for Coffee in San Francisco has plenty of the details.

I work in the Financial District and one of my favorite spots is a place called Coffee Cultures. Check out my post and interview in San Francisco’s Coffee Cultures.

Plenty of other San Francisco publications have opined on the topic as well:
> Thrillist SF: The best coffee shop in every single SF neighborhood
> Eater SF: The Coffee Heatmap: 16 Great Places to Catch a Buzz
> SFist: The Best Coffee Shops In San Francisco
> Business Insider: The 10 Best Coffee Shops In San Francisco

And beyond…

I fell head over heels in love with Tom Greenwell fourth generation coffee farmer at Greenwell Coffee Farm in Hawaii. Farmer, food scientist and coffee champion, after spending several hours with Tom I had a whole new appreciation for Kona coffee.

I have spent a lot of time in Paris, my hubby even more, but despite that fact, ordering coffee in Paris can be daunting even for us! I put together a post on How to Order Coffee in Paris to help.

Then I did the same in my How to Order Coffee in Portugal.

Rachelle of The Travel Bite beat me to it when it comes to Ordering Coffee in Italy.

How about you? Do you like coffee? What’s your favorite way to drink it? Where your favorite place to drink it?

[Hey, we also just had National Cheeseburger Day another one near and dear to my heart! Here are my favorite cheeseburgers in San Francisco, and hamburgers too!]

    I love coffee and my favorite place to drink it is at home! I like to drink my coffee iced with milk.

    I love a cappuccino. I developed my love for it in Italy when I first tasted a perfectly made coffee with steamed milk in a small coffee cup – only considered small compared to a grande or venti coffee from Starbucks mind you.
    I have a cappuccino every day from my local Blenz and they are good but nothing compares to the real thing!

    What fun to drink coffee in all those countries! I also loved reading your coffee story. Your mum ordering hot chocolate reminded me of my mum – a coffee addict, but she became a glaucoma suspect last year and her doctor ordered her to stop coffee. She says she still gets a headache without her morning cuppa.

    I’m not a huge coffee drinker but I DO like it – and only iced! Isn’t that weird? I think I like espresso better than ol’ coffee to be honest. I didn’t even have cofffee today in celebration, shame on me πŸ™‚ I think I”ll pick up an extra one tomorrow at McDonalds (I loved their vanilla iced coffee’s SO MUCH). Next time I’ll drive to San Francisco and scope out some cool coffee spots (I have them written down as to which ones i need to check out next!) – I’m not too too far away, in San Jose πŸ™‚

    This has to be one of my favorite holiday’s too! I have sampled coffee all over the country (and several parts of the world) and I think San Francisco has some of the best coffee on the west coast. Seattle has to be one of my favorites too.

    I haven’t drank coffee in a long time. I use to love a good Iced Coffee. When I would go out to breakfast I enjoyed a hot coffee with cream but I don’t drink it anymore. I am on a specific diet that only allows weak coffee but I haven’t really had the urge to drink it in years. This does look yummy though, myabe I will try to make some soon.

    I LOVE coffee. If I’m drinking a Starbucks coffee, my order is a Skinny Vanilla Latte with Soy milk. I don’t need any sweetener or extra cream and it tastes delicious. I always feel a little like I’m ordering a man too when I say that, particularly when I order a “tall.” Tall Skinny Carmel man with a good job and a car please! haha

    Oh yes, I love my coffee. I didn’t get to actually “celebrate” National Coffee Day, however. I heard Dunkin Donuts was giving away free coffee? Of course America would have a day just for coffee.

    I do love coffee (but recently had to cut down…long story). When I was in NY, my friend and I went to Eataly for coffee every morning…it was our little ritual to get the day started while we were there. Beyond that, I mostly make it at home.

    I started drinking coffee four years ago and wondered why I haven’t drank it sooner. I didn’t know there was a National Coffee Day. This year it will be on the 20th anniversary of the North American release of the Nintendo 64.
