This morning, I woke up to a group text message from my friends suggesting we head to Dunkin’ Donuts for a late breakfast. We typically just eat at our college dining hall on Sundays, but then we remembered something special about September 29th. It’s National Coffee Day.
When I’m home, I frequent both Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks. Now that I’m at school, I only have the opportunity to go to Dunkin’ Donuts, which is conveniently located right across the street from campus. The Dunkin’ mobile app comes in handy every so often, and today you could get a free small hot or iced coffee if you made use of it.
Starbucks was also doing a promotion today where you could get a free sample of coffee from Ethiopia, the birthplace of the beverage. I couldn’t help but to wish I was back home today so that my mother and I could take a trip to the nearest Starbucks and taste the exotic blend. Unfortunately, I had to settle for reading about the promotions through Starbucks’ website.
So if you are fortunate enough to have a Starbucks near you, take advantage of it. Sample the Ethiopian coffee before it’s too late, and enjoy a cup for me too while you’re at it. If I didn’t have incomplete homework staring at me in the face, I would make the trip to the nearest Starbucks an hour and a half away.
Thank you Starbucks for celebrating the birthplace of coffee. I hope to walk through your doors soon.
