Sept 29 - National Coffee Day

Did you know today is National Coffee Day?
my secret... I didn't have a coffee today, instead an Earl Grey Latte because I'm feeling under the weather. 

So here's to a post about coffee!

5 Things About Me & Coffee

1. My Favorite Coffee: Kicking Horse Coffee. Nothing else compares. This is definitely our favorite cup of Joe. We only drink the mild roasts, and usually we mix it up. It's expensive, but every now and then it goes on sale at Save on Foods so then we stock up.

2. My favorite Coffee Shop: I'm a cough up. I LOVE Starbucks. I love hanging out there. I love the baristas at my local stores.

3. My favorite 'fancy coffee' drink: Caramel Latte's. Non fat please. Full fat makes it too sweet.

4. How I drink my coffee: mild, 3 cream, 2 sugars.

5. When I started drinking coffee: At Cottey College, 2nd Year. All of a sudden it was 3 coffee's a day....

And this post wouldn't be complete without a few fun facts about coffee!
