random round up: national coffee day

You know me, I’m a sucker for “national ______  day” posts. (you fill in the blank, I get pretty excited about them all.)

But today? Today’s “national day” seems more important than just a quick thumbs up on Facebook or a double tap on Instagram. (I’d even considering doing a Periscope video if I had combed my hair.)

It’s NATIONAL COFFEE DAY!

This deserves a celebration.

My Cinnamon Dolce Latte made this list a couple years ago — we still make that one often.

No words even needed, make your own PSL today. (I now add pumpkin spices right into my coffee grounds before brewing and sweeten with maple syrup!)

Dairy-free? My recipe for dairy-free coffee creamer is just what you need. (add pumpkin spice!)

Maybe you need your coffee and smoothie in one. Try this Morning Monkey Mocha smoothie.

 

While in London, I fell in love with the Flat White, a misunderstood coffee drink here in the US. I got lucky and had some Australian friends make me my first one, but you can make them at home as well. (now would be a good time to insert an item from my birthday list: an espresso machine! 😉  )

Speaking of London, I bought this Cafe Life London book while I was there and made it a mission to get to as many as possible — a fun challenge if you ever find yourself there for three months or even three days! Or in any city really, go out looking for a local coffee shop, they rarely disappoint.

We use a French Press for our coffee makings — what do you use are your house?

This one looks fancy: pumpkin chai tea latte. (dairy-free!) I am a huge fan of chai + coffee. I use cold brew coffee mixed with cold chai and add honey for a little number I call Liquid Sunshine. This goes for hot coffee + chai too.

Happy National Coffee Day — may your coffee be strong and your Monday be short! xoxo
