Happy National Coffee Day!

I thought that National Coffee Day was every day.  In the past, many businesses that serve coffee have promotions on this day, so keep an eye out.  You might be able to get a cup of discounted or free coffee today.  It looks like Krispy Kreme will be participating.  This is from the Krispy Kreme Facebook page:

This cup’s on us! Krispy Kreme National Coffee Day Giveaway
Next Thursday, Sept. 29, we will celebrate National Coffee Day by giving away a FREE 12 oz. cup of our House Blend Coffee (US and Canada only).

It’s also National Mocha Day.

Combine both and have a Mocha Latte!  Or you could try this recipe for Mocha:
