Today is National Coffee Day, and I am celebrating with Eight O’Clock Coffee. I have been a huge fan of Eight O’ Clock Coffee for many years (my parents always drank it while I was growing up). I love making coffee for myself or for a friend for some one-on-one girl time, and now that it’s fall, I enjoy sitting out on my deck under the fall foliage enjoying every sip with Eight O’ Clock Coffee. My three kids actually like coffee too. They are huge fans of this Coffee Milkshake recipe, which only has 4 ingredients, starting with Eight O’ Clock Coffee. I am excited to share that Eight O’Clock Coffee fans throughout the country looking to join in on the National Coffee Day celebration can visit Eight O’Clock Coffee’s Facebook page for a chance to win coffee prizes and a trip to LA to visit the Warner Brothers studios. Check out their twitter page too! This post is sponsored by Eight O’ Clock Coffee, but all opinions are my own.
To celebrate National Coffee Day, Eight O’Clock Coffee is continuing the celebration of the Friends 20th anniversary with a variety of fun activities and giveaways at the pop-up shop in New York. How cool is that? To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Friends premiere, Eight O’Clock Coffee partnered with Warner Bros. to create the first-ever Central Perk Roast – a limited edition varietal inspired by the beloved coffee shop that served as the backdrop to so many memorable moments on the show. If you watched a television in the 90’s, you probably were like me and hooked on “Friends”. While the show always made me laugh, my favorite episode was when Rachel gets off the plane to reunite with Ross. Ross gets home and listens to the voicemail where Rachel say’s, “I love you”, and she realizes she is in love with him. It’s so sweet and touching and always makes tear up. I miss that show!
More about the coffee…The Limited Edition Eight O’Clock Central Perk Roast is a medium coffee house roast made with carefully selected, high quality, 100% Arabica beans, for which the Eight O’Clock brand is known. Friends fans throughout the country can celebrate this milestone and bring Central Perk into their own living rooms by purchasing bags of the limited edition variety at grocery and mass merchandise stores nationwide and online at EightOClock.com/friends for approximately $6.99.
Also, there’s a pop-up replica of Central Perk, the neighborhood coffee shop frequented by the characters on Friends. Located in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood at 199 Lafayette Street (at the corner of Broome Street), the Central Perk commemorative pop-up shop will serve free cups of Eight O’ Clock Coffee and feature authentic memorabilia including the iconic orange couch and improv musical acts reminiscent of Phoebe’s “Smelly Cat.
