Coffee wakes us up in the morning and peps us up again in the afternoon. To celebrate this magical libation we’re sharing with you a couple local and national companies that are just as passionate about coffee as we are.
Mama Bella Gourmet Market & Café
You’ll have to wait one extra day, but on October 1 this café will celebrate its grand opening and the festivities will continue throughout the weekend. Look forward to tastings and samples from the food and wine menus plus discounts and drawings for Mama Bella gift cards.
518 S. Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach; 561/ 599-5500; mamabellacafe.com
Circle Coffee House
Created by retired NFL linebacker Stephen Tulloch, this Fort Lauderdale coffee joint is offering you a free Mojo donut with your large espresso order on Wednesday. While you’re there, ask about the drinkable selfies. You won’t regret it.
727 NE 3rd Ave., Suite 100, Fort Lauderdale; 954/870-6456; circlehousecoffee.com
Lucky Jack Coffee
The organic cold coffee maker recently launched a line of ready-to-drink cold brew lattes with oat milk that are gluten and nut-free, kosher and come in several flavors like mocha, golden milk (cinnamon and turmeric) and caramel. Cheers to that!
Available on Amazon or Publix: 1968 NE 5th Ave. and 21230 St. Andrews Blvd. Visit luckyjackcoffee.com for more stores.
When tea and coffee collide, you get coffee in a tea bag that doesn’t require a coffee maker machine. It comes in mild, medium, dark, French roast and decaf and the bags are eco-friendly (aka compostable).
Available on Amazon and at select Whole Foods locations.
