Quality Time is Brewing for International Coffee Day
September 27th, 2022 by John Frederick, Marketing & Events Manager
Do you hear that? That is the sound of coffee being brewed, espresso shots being pulled, and rich, delicious milk being frothed for your signature latte. But wait, you might be hearing something else, too – that October 1st is International Coffee Day!
If you have been looking for an excuse to escape with your spouse to spend alone time together, then look no further. Celebrate International Coffee Day by sneaking out for a morning coffee date! A convenient reality of coffee shops is that most open by 7 or 8am (if not earlier) while the rest of the world is still waking up and before the busyness and chores of the day have to begin. Bask in the presence of your spouse and rediscover him or her through more intentional conversation. Arriving at your favorite café right when it opens allows for some quiet time and soft conversation before the morning rush. Remember, this is your time so make sure to relish every moment of it, take time to talk about topics outside of the ordinary, and dream about the future together!
We are blessed with many amazing coffee shops within the city of Pittsburgh. No matter where you live, a gem of a café is probably not more than a short walk or drive away. Here are a few recommendations:
