Coffee drinkers rejoice, our holiday is finally here! It’s national coffee day, and here in NYC, proprietors around the island are celebrating by offering to caffeinate New Yorkers for free. If you’re anything like me, when you wake up in the morning, your first task before anything else is to get the coffee going. It’s more than just a cup of brewing beans. It’s a feeling you get when you wake up on a Saturday morning, and can smell it from the other room, knowing someone got up first to make it. Or its drinking that coffee while reading the paper, fumbling at your desk, or the best one, lounging on your couch. But if the standard template just won’t do, try something else. There is a never ending list of ways to enjoy coffee, and rules need not apply. After all fall began last week, but iced coffees still occupy half the hands that walk by me on the street. Whether you follow the rules, or like to live by your own, here are 6 more delicious ways to get your caffeine buzz during national coffee day 2016.
1. Thai iced coffee
2. Coffee ice cubes.
3. Coffee with tonic.
4. Instant pumpkin spice latte
5. Coconut cowgirl coffee (their version of Bulletproof coffee).
