Thanks for the list! I’ve been trying to visit each one…a list helps a latte… (couldn’t help it!)
Love it! And it’s a hard job to try them all, you might have to go back for a second opinion to make sure you get it straight.
What’s your favorite place locally for a Cappuccino?
Hi Erin! Hope you guys are doing well! Favorite coffee drink is just an Americano with real cream. 🙂
Hi Kate, thanks for the well wishing, hope college is treating you well.
Regular latte not too hot with three raw sugars
Sounds delicious, are you coming to the photo walk?
I’m a purist, Espresso with a dash of water. 🙂
A purist… humm… do you have a favorite espresso location locally?
A latte will do fine… where is the best capuchino? Italian style would be fantastic, less foam, a touch of sugar, some cocoa sprinkled on top…
Mmm, pumpkin spice latte at Summer Thyme!
I should probably have said that’s what the top photo is, did you know they put real maple in their cream? Delicious.
My fave is also a cappuccino, no sweet stuff added. I don’t currently have a local number 1 spot for said beverage, so I’m open to persuasion 🙂
Americano with steamed half&half….perfect start to the day!
Ohhhhh, so many favs, how do I choose? Had an espresso for my first time at curly wolf, AMAZING! When I need a coffee fix I usually go to Cruz thru coffee at Grass Valley florist, makes it so easy (which could turn into a problem lol).
I love their coffee mochas.
Just a simple pour over with heavy cream, in the morning before everyone in my house rises for the day. Although I had a pumpkin latte at Carolines the other day that was yummy! I will let Lena know about your photo walk.
I’m an Americano gal. And a little cinnamon never hurts 😉
Every once in a while, I treat myself to a mocha. It is my favorite because … Chocolate.
I think I have a frequent flyer coffee card for every place in town. I love to do my Friday morning errands and then treat my self to local COFFEE !
Where do I start? A coffee Valencia is my all time fav.. My favorite roast is Italian. I love coffee, yes I do.
Nothing better than pumpkin spice latte in the fall!! Great list! Thanks!
I used to like the sweetened drinks, but my husband has introduced me to the goodness of plain old coffee with a splash of half and half. That’s my go-to, now.
Mmm, what a perfect day to celebrate! Crisp fall air & leaves, can’t help it – I want a real PSL (with actual pumpkin 🙂
Coffee, light and sweet. Yum.
my fave is the caramel macchiato <3 hot or iced, it's all good!
On a hot day I like iced coffee with light ice and a half pump of vanilla. On cold or cool days I like a dark roast coffee with a shot of espresso. I’m branching out, though. ☕️
My current favorite is an iced caramel latte, although I am partial to a peppermint mocha.
Cafe latte! Thanks for the awesome list!
Erin I love all your post I really look forward to them. I had no idea there were this many coffee places I guess I better get out more. My favorite is a flat white.
Thanks Susan. I love a flat white too, are there places other then Curly Wolf that serve them?
It’s a great idea to celebrate coffee everyday. For a special occasion, I like to get the affogato at Treats. There’s something simply wonderful about the combination of ice cream and espresso.
Flat White <3
My favorite is…..the beautiful cup of coffee so elegantly designed in your photo for this blog! Don’t know where it came from but as soon as someone lets me know, I am there!
Thanks Randi for the comment, the top photo is from Summer Thyme’s in Grass Valley, their non-sugar added all natural pumpkin spice latte with real maple cream.
I love iced toddy from Foxhound – been rocking it for several weeks now.
We love a pumpkin spice this time of year!
Vanilla latte is my most constant coffee lover
We love our coffee!
I’m not too picky when it comes to coffee, but I’d probably have to go with a hot caramel machiatto. I love going to Curly Wolf and Flour Garden. I’ve been meaning to try Fable Coffee in town. There’s always someone walking in as I drive by! Happy National Coffee day ☕
The iced toddy at Foxhound is my go to drink.
Iced Latte or pour over at home!
Happy National Coffee Day!
My favorite coffee drink is a mocha!
Fable coffee rocks!! Just went this morning for my almond milk latte. Love that it’s unsweetened and you can taste the yummy coffee.
Pumpkin Spice Latte is my favorite Fall drink!
loving the support of local businesses
Coffee is such a good way to start the day!
My new friend, Eliza, was just asking me “where can you get a super smooth, not bitter, cup of coffee? I realize i don’t know .. i don’t get out much!! But LOVE all the gifts you have above!!
OH – and favorite coffee drink .. depends on the day for sure
but needs to be not too sweet and creamy! Probably my friend Tom’s Latte’s!
My mom won’t let me have coffee .. but i do like coffee ice cream when i get a chance!
Bob Marley One Drop
Uh oh .. I don’t think that above drink is allowed nor known by supervising parent!!
The Vietnamese coffee at Mecca! Err me gerrrd
Oh, I’ve never tried that, is it super sweet?
I always get an iced coffee from fable on Saturday’s during market season. My favorite hot coffee is an Americano with cream.
♡♡♡ Cappuccino! ♡♡♡
Home brew with whipped 1/2 and 1/2 since I love my Ikea hand held milk frother.
By all means, add me to the gift certificate giveaway. I’m feeling lucky today. See you on Instagram.
even though the heat of summer is waning, i still love a cold brew coffee!
Good old fashioned latte from Foxhound!
I love me a Vanilla Latte from Caroline’s. And the Patch.
I’ve got to say, it is more about being at the table with my friends then the actual coffee drink! We are all in our late 70’s/early 80’s and meet every week for our coffee check in time.
I like a double latté every morning. Usually I make them myself with beans from Caroline’s. Sometimes I treat myself to a latté from Caroline’s or Three Forks.
Thanks for the list, I’ve only been to a few! I’m always looking for the perfect cup 😉
Oh, I’ll take coffee in pretty much any and all forms, but I’m having a hankering for coffee ICE CREAM after reading your blog post! Keep up the good work!
anything strong and sweet!!!
French Roast…its my daily habit
I love lattes especially a good roast.
I miss Nevada County coffee! Java Johns and Sierra Mountain Coffee Roasters will definitely be on my list when I visit later this month, and I see some new roasters have opened since I moved away. Fable? Fox Hound? I will be stocking up on beans to bring to the remote corner of southern California desert that I now call home, maybe in a new Outside Inn travel mug 😉
Coffee and I. Unrequited love. Poor me.
I absolutely love coffee, especially a good cafe au lait!
