Celebrating Coffee! Why Don’t You Have a Cup?

Yesterday was National Coffee Day here in the U.S. and tomorrow is International Coffee Day, so I thought I’d split the difference and celebrate today!

Earlier this week another study was released suggesting that 2 – 3 cups of the brew is good for your heart and longevity.

We see these kinds of headlines about every 6 months which is encouraging, yes.

But regardless, I’ll enjoy my morning coffee, either at home, or in the cutest shop I can find, whether near or far.

There’s no better way to start the day than with coffee – my favorite food group! πŸ™‚

  1. Ha! You got me here! I must say it’s the first thing I take in the morning. It’s my life boost.

  2. I love the smell of coffee in the morning but I just can’t stand the taste! Sparky on the other hand love his coffee and must have it to be able to function. I’m completely decaffeinated…

    • The smell is wonderful indeed! I’ve enjoyed a cuppa brew for as long as I can remember, and am always happy when they report its health benefits! 😊

  3. Alas, my doctor says coffee is bad for my blood pressure – but I often sneak a second cup anyway.

  4. I share your love of coffee, Susanne! A couple of good cups in the morning then a leftover cup (or two) in the afternoon. We were on the road in Portland and you can be sure I enjoyed a pumpkin spice cold brew or a skinny PS latte. Heaven! I agree with the health benefits it has.

    • Hi Terri! Looks like you had a great time in Portland! Isn’t it wonderful we can enjoy our coffee and know it’s good for us? πŸ™‚ I like to start out with mine black, then follow it up with a latte, since my Keurig machine does both. And it’s always fun to find a new place on the road to try their local brew, especially for a specially flavored latte. πŸ™‚

      • Yes! Although I admit that after I have my 2 cups of black coffee in the morning, I like to follow it up with a latte, which actually is very filling and serves as my breakfast. β˜•β˜•πŸ˜Š

  5. I stopped drinking coffee at home over a year ago. My favourite instant brand was no longer being made, and I couldn’t be bothered to get used to other brands that didn’t taste the same. So I switched to a strong brand of tea instead. But when we are out and about, I still enjoy a nice strong coffee in a cafe or bar.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Do you miss it at home? I’ve been drinking coffee since high school and can’t imagine giving it up. I especially love that first cup in the morning. But if I had to, I think I could adjust to a good cup of tea. 😊

  6. I love coffee too, and especially in a cosy coffee shop or on a street/terrace/deck with a view πŸ™‚ That ‘Better Living Through Coffee’ place looks a bit familiar – could it possibly be in Port Townsend? We had breakfast in a place that looked very like that!

    • Yes, doesn’t it taste best in a cozy coffee shop? And you have a good memory! That ‘better living through coffee’ is indeed in Port Townsend! 😊

      • I’m surprised myself that I recognised it – we were there over four years ago and only for that one breakfast πŸ˜€

  7. Gotta have my large cup of French-pressed coffee in the morning. Better Living Through Coffee is still in business then. Good for them.

    • Do you drink Kona coffee grown on the island? Delicious but a bit pricey if I remember my trip to one of the farms! And yes, that cute coffee shop in PT has survived. 😊

  8. I am with you. And always great with a buddy, especially sitting on a dock in Port Townsend. Love the puppy dog design. Cheers.
