TODAY IS ESPRESSO DAY
Rich and powerful, espresso is a nitro-boost to your day and a go-to for coffee drinkers looking for a way to get through those long hard days and nights. It is a refinement of coffee, distilled down to its most potent elements and delivered in special cups that should have a warning label that reads “High Vibration and Caffeine Jitters Ahead”. Espresso day celebrates the history of this delicious and powerful solution to an otherwise dreary day.
How To Celebrate Espresso Day
Celebrating Espresso Day is as simple as skipping on down to your local caffenation station or whatever your local flavor of coffee shop is. Order yourself the strongest drink on the menu, a triple-shot espresso if they have them, and raise a small ceramic glass of high-powered octane the those in attendance.
