For a vast majority of us, before we’re able to talk to anyone, start the day, or even function properly, we need that steamy, dreamy, hot cup of Joe (a.k.a our morning coffee). Its heavenly aroma fills your house and nostrils, all the while assuring you that you CAN actually get through the weekday funk.
Here in America we cherish all that this versatile beverage does for us, so it’s no surprise that we dedicated a whole national holiday to it. September 29th is National Coffee Day, so spend the day celebrating the right way!
Here are three ways to get in the spirit and get the most out of this glorious day, and be sure to thank your local barista for the cup of perfection they make for you!
Get After Those Deals
What would be the point in a national holiday if no one recognized it? There’s plenty of small town coffee shops, corporate giants, and even coffee-selling gas stations having deals for the day. Below are three places to go that you can venture to in Statesboro:
Take a Chance on a New Shop
Sticking to what you know is easy. Be a little adventurous and support your local coffee shops. Shopping locally is always a great way to spread community love. Shops such as Three Tree Coffee Roasters, The Daily Grind, and CAKE Bakery & Cool Beanz Espresso Bar have specialty coffee that is roasted and prepared with the utmost care. It’s currently up in the air if these shops will have any deals, but it’s worth the trip.
Spread the Love
Sure, you can take advantages of all the deals available and get yourself so hyped up on coffee that you don’t sleep for the next two days, but that aftermath crash will quickly make you regret it. Instead, use it to pick one up for a friend, a co-worker, or that cute girl in class. You’ll make someone’s day and you won’t be in any more debt for it since you’ll be getting yours for free.

Her post-graduation dreams include hitting the west coast for a little while and working as a record label representative (maybe.. that’s one of like, five options). As she tries to cope with the fact that she’s graduating on time, you can find her spending her days in Sanford hall and her nights at Dingus. She tends to spend too much money on music festivals, drink too much coffee, and wait too long to do assignments. Follow her sarcastic life on Twitter or Instagram @rayajacqjack.
