It's National Coffee Day

Whether you drink it black or add in sugar and creamer, it seems most people like coffee.  Today is the day to celebrate with a cup of joe.  

Here is a recipe for Mocha Espresso, courtesy of IMUSA:


Espresso ground coffee
1 packet Sugar free Chocolate powder
1 cup Hazelnut coffee creamer

Fill your espresso-brewing cup ⅔ with espresso coffee and ⅓ with sugar free chocolate powder and gently mix. Prepare your espresso as directed. In the meantime heat up a cup of Hazelnut coffee creamer. (You can also try French vanilla) Once brewed, divide the coffee evenly between 2 cups and add creamer. Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon on each and serve. No sugar needed!

If you, instead, prefer to purchase your coffee at a shop rather than brew at home, here's a list of places that are offering coffee promotions today for National Coffee Day:

I like my coffee iced. I don't do hot coffee, but give me an iced coffee or frappucino any day!
