    My husband orders a raspberry mocha with whipped cream and I order a cup of strong black coffee. People always think the mocha is for me. LOL!

    We are very lucky to have so many places to indulge our coffee habits and to have a nice place to visit. Make mine decaf though… 🙂

    I’m a little sheepish to admit it, but i do love a rich, sweet caffe mocha! My non-sugar-bomb favorite is a flat white.

    Coffee, coffee, coffee! I couldn’t start a day without a mug or two. Deep, dark, rich, freshly ground and freshly brewed is perfect for me! On a hot day, though, an iced latte is perfection.

    Wow, coffee is a food group for me. I love it black, but I also would stand on my head for a steaming hot latte on a cold day. Yum.

    You just gave me a great idea for this fall/winter: visit each of these coffee spots. I’m still kinda new here so it’s time to do some indoor exploring. Mocha is my favorite.

    Ooh, yum. What a great collection of giveaways!

    I like plain coffee best, with a splash of cream, though I’ll get a latte on occasion.

    Thanks, Erin!

    A cup of hot organic dark roast with goat milk while sitting on a slab of granite enjoying the view of the sun coming over the peaks and reflecting off a high Sierra lake. Might as well add some brilliant yellow and orange aspens overhead. Cheers!

    My favorite coffee drink on a nice hot day is probably an Affogato at Broad street cafe. Can’t beat espresso and ice cream!

    There’s just the simplicity of pure pleasure when you see a beautiful swirl on your latte in the early mornings of fall. Our county has the best selection to sip from.

    Mmmmm- a delicious, beautifully crafted Moca from Foxhound to start a cool fall morning! The towns colors are changing and are amazing, does it get any better?

    I love my neighborhood coffee shop Carolines.My favorite is the different coffee of the week I like to read the srory of the different country and how
    it is made.Always interesting! I can stroll around downtown Grass Valley with my furry roommate and enjoy my coffee

  15. Tara
    Tara says:

    A favorite, nope. It’s all good- morning cup with half and half, afternoon cold brew – yesterday afternoon I had a latte from Caroline’s with honey – yum! and had an hour together with my 13 year old.

  16. Jean Gilbert
    Jean Gilbert says:

    My daily coffee is Peets – especially Kenyan and Arabian Mocha Java – served hot and black. My favorite local coffee place is Sierra Mountain Coffee Roasters. We are so fortunate to have such great coffee options in this community!

  17. Daisy Simmons
    Daisy Simmons says:

    My go-to at home is French Roast. Out and about, I lean toward cappuccino. But while I appreciate the wide world of options, I also kinda miss the ease of being able to order a simple cuppa joe…

  18. Erika
    Erika says:

    Just *one* favorite coffee drink? Mine changes with the seasons — it’s almost egg nog latte season, and Caroline’s makes the best. But my go-to special treat is the Flat White at Curly Wolf with a shot of lavender.

    Shannon says:

    My husband and I are moving to Nevada City in a few months! Can’t wait to try all the coffees at all these wonderful places. Need to find the perfect cozy spot to curl up with a hot coffee and a good book!

    Mary M says:

    What lovely treats, all these giveaways are wonderful. I love my coffee in a big mug, hot with a splash of vanilla cream and on hot days, the same over ice.

  21. Debra Warila
    Debra Warila says:

    My favorite coffee drink is Iced Mocha with whipped cream. But I also adore a double espresso con panna.

  22. Ann Hobbs
    Ann Hobbs says:

    Wish Sierra Mountain still could get Tanzanian Peaberry. An awesome cup of Joe! And what’s interesting is to put a sprinkle of cinnamon in you coffee. Or stir it with a cinnamon stick.

  23. Sarah Hendrickson
    Sarah Hendrickson says:

    One medium sized cup of dark, chewy coffee…with a dash of maple syrup and a splash of whole cream….

  24. Jaime Crandall
    Jaime Crandall says:

    About a month ago I had an almond milk sage latte at the Curly Wolf. It’s pretty much all I can think about and nothing since then has come close to it. New favorite.

    I already have my reservations for a Victorian Christmas, would love to win to have a yummy treat while I’m there!
