Happy National Coffee Day!

Disclaimer: Starbucks sent me a bag of their newest coffee. I was under no obligation to post or share and am not compensated for this post. To know me is to know I love coffee and I love Starbucks. Period.

Tomorrow is National Coffee Day. AKA my favorite holiday AKA a day that is most celebrated among my people.

My fitness philosophy.

I'm often asked if coffee is Paleo. My short answer: I don't care. My long answer: I am absolutely convinced that cavepeople of my lineage were roasting coffee beans over a campfire, smashing them with rocks, and pouring hot water over them. Obviously.

If we're friends on Instagramtwitterfacebook... OK, pretty much anywhere, you are well aware of my passion for coffee. Yes, yes I've been known to call it happy-rainbow-unicorn-sunshine-juice. You also may be vaguely aware of my love of all things Starbucks.







I call that little photo montage "Tuesday".

Let's just say I was mildly excited when Starbucks wanted to send me a bag of their newest coffee to celebrate with this National Coffee Day.

 A little info on this new coffee and Starbucks National Coffee Day promotions:


Starbucks honors the birthplace of coffee with the global introduction of Ethiopia, an enchanting single-origin steeped in history and flavor

Ethiopia, a new packaged, whole bean coffee from Starbucks, celebrates the country’s rich heritage as the birthplace of coffee. Extraordinary beans combined with Starbucks expertise in roasting give Ethiopia a uniquely delicious flavor, featuring soft, velvety notes of dark chocolate, peppery spice, and sweet citrus. This single-origin, medium roast is available in company-operated and participating licensed stores in the U.S. and Canada, as well as on Starbucksstore.com beginning October 1, 2013. One-pound packages of Ethiopia coffee retail for $13.95 U.S.
Ethiopia Commemorative Tasting Cup
National Coffee Day, Sept. 29: Free Ethiopia Tastings and Commemorative Ceramic Cups
Starbucks will honor the rich, timeless tradition of coffee in Ethiopia with free Ethiopia coffee tastings in participating Starbucks® stores in the U.S. Sept. 29, National Coffee Day. On that day, customers who purchase a 1-lb. bag of Ethiopia coffee will receive a complimentary Ethiopian-inspired commemorative ceramic cup, while supplies last. In addition, Ethiopia will be brewed in stores for two weeks following National Coffee Day.

Might I recommend a little Paleo-friendly cinnamon vanilla coffee creamer with that?

How will you be celebrating National Coffee Day??
