(Tuesday) Is National Coffee Day! Something we know allllllll about here in the Yakima Valley.

And I am positive you have tried EVERY combination of coffee. Mocha, Latte, Americano, Blonde, Espresso, Breve, Cold Brew, I could go on. We all have our favorite.

Every combination has been tried, vetted, tested or enjoyed. Nothing new is under the sun here. We even have creamers to add to the bean. French Vanilla, Italian Sweet Cream, Pumpkin Spice - it feels like there are an infinite number of coffee creamer flavors out now, including Bailey’s Irish Cream Cream.

Why?  Why would you add coffee flavored coffee to your, er, coffee? Did we ask for this? Good question! While we search for answers, allow us to ruminte as at this point, we can only guess.

The idea is you can add these more sophisticated flavors, like "Classic Colombian" or "Italian Espresso" to the mediocre coffee you brew at home to make it taste like better coffee. This will come in handy as most workplace coffee is basically third world country fare that attempts to fuel our workday.

Our coffee here at work could GREATLY benefit from ANY help whatsoever. I am thankful because it’s free, but you get what you pay for. So, until these creamers come out, we will continue to enjoy the some Yakima’s finest coffee houses and what they have to offer sans coffee flavored creamers.


All My Best,
