I love a steaming nonfat, no whip, black and white mocha in a mug with a special design made in the foam. Puts a smile on my face and is perfection!!
Three Forks plain ‘ol coffee!
I love flavored coffee Lattes and love all of the coffee cafes in Nevada City and Grass Valley!
Coffee Black! This morning it’s the fine coffee from Java John’s.
Coffee Ice Cream all the way!
I love a latte for a treat, but we also have so many places in our towns for a terriffic regular cup of drip coffee.
A mocha is my favorite!
I love a good cup of excellent black coffee. Love the ambience of our many wonderful coffee shops and restaurants in Nevada City/ Grass Valley.
My all-time favorite coffee drink is a Mexican mocha, also known as an Aztec mocha. It usually has a bit of dark chocolate, cinnamon, and sometimes a pinch of cayenne. Briarpatch makes a really awesome Aztec mocha.
I run on coffee. A good tall cup (or entire French press) of black coffee.
I love the Orange Sunshine. Always a winner with rich flavored espresso and just the right amount of sweetness!
I love the Orange Sunshine at The Curly Wolf. Always a winner with rich flavored espresso and just the right amount of sweetness!
A good strong cup with a shot of Baileys Irish Cream on Thanksgiving!
I love a good ol’ Americano – but I did just see Sara’s above post about mexican mocha, and I love those too. A lot.
i gots ta have m’ mocha…
London Fog Latte from Curly Wolf. No one does it better. ❤️
I love gingerbread lattes or lattes with a smidgen of mocha, yummy!
First cup of the morning anywhere…
I love my morning mocha with not too much chocolate and just a splash of peppermint. Yum!
Always an Americano at Three Forks or chai with espresso. Curly wolf’s latte’s are amazing too!
Iced latte in the summer. Hot latte in the winter. No syrup. Nothing fancy. But I love my lattes.
Sierra coffee roasters, easy mocha. Mmm.
Love the almost daily AMERICANO from Carolines. Delicious and buzzy enough to navigate the day ahead.
I love cafe Au lait. It reminds me cafes in France eating a croissant.
Fresh brewed coffee, extra cream and sugar. Yum.
Wow! This is awesome! I love them all! But I have to say the coffee ice cream at treats is amaxing!
I love me a good medium or light roast blend with shot of cream and small teaspoon of sugar, a perfect pick-me-up. Now…off to make myself some French Press to get me through the afternoon. 🙂
I’m a coffee generalist. I like it all. OK, as long as it’s dark roast and has organic half & half.
Vanilla Latte all day!
Hot latte! The hotter the better.
French roast, via French press 🙂
Definitely an Orange Sunshine from the Curly Wolf
Lattes are my favorite! I’ve been trying my best to make a decent latte at home to save money but haven’t quite got the hang of it yet. Thankfully there’s more than a couple good coffee shops in our town so I can grab one when mine doesn’t turn out!
A mocha is my favorite! Thanks for compiling this list Erin… some of these I have not checked out yet!
I love coffee of all kinds, but I only drink coffee black.
Warm weather makes me salivate over my soy unsweetened iced coffee. When winter arrives, I splurge on the occasional soy latte but generally stick to my French press home brew – black. 😉
Curly Wolf has the best cappuccinos and mochas!
My favorite coffee drink is a short pull espresso, heavy on the crema!
I like coffee ice cream!
My favorite coffee is whatever Caroline’s is promoting each week. It’s a chance to taste a new bean in a wonderful environment with all the other locals. That they roast their own coffee on the premises is a nice bonus.
While I love visiting all the different local coffee shops in the Nevada City and Grass Valley areas, I must say that my home dripped with secret spices is my favorite!
An orange sunshine from Curly Wolf is the perfect way to start a leisurely read in the cafe, enjoyed on the balcony of the National Hotel overlooking Broad St., or to prime myself for a stroll to enjoy the beautiful fall leaves as the seasons change!
Iced Mocha! Anywhere. Any time.
Triple iced latte!
The Curly Wolf has the best lattes ever, hands down. Plus they invented the lavender latte! You can’t beat it.
Three comments for Orange Sunshine at Curly Wolf – guess I’m going to have to try it!
Obvi, any drink made by the guy with the portafilter nunchucks tattooed on his arm is going to be hands down, killer.
My latest enjoyment of coffee is strong black coffee with a mini scoop of vanilla ice cream. It’s just delicious!
Curly Wolf’s Lavender Latte and the London Fog! So good
I just love a small latte from Foxhound. It always makes me feel happy. Something about the chemical balance, feel, and flavor. Ahhh…
A mocha frappe is wonderful, like dessert! Otherwise, a French roast to put the buzz on.
I love a triple mocha with just 1/4 the chocolate extra hot and I don’t skip the whip.
Curly Wolf’s lattes are my favorite. And the chai tea there is scrumptious.
Lattes, cappuccinos, plain ol’ cup of joe….I like ’em all!
I love a lavender vanilla latte with when I can find one.
Nothing beats a warm cup of Joe from one of the many amazing coffee houses we have in town, especially on a brisk fall morning. What a wonderful little town we live in!
I love so many different coffee shops in our area. My new favorite is the cardamom rose latte at Fables. I try to make it at home, but it’s not quite the same.
I love Caroline’s coffee. Any drink with a light roast is tasty.
Free coffee?? I will take this as an opportunity to say how about that love walk yesterday. yuge turn out! Yuge.
Coffee by the campfire is the best! Second best – the first cup of the day 🙂
We are so lucky to have so many alternatives to Starbucks in our community! I love a good cafe latte at Curly Wolf & also like that cool new espresso place next to Nevada City Winery on Spring Street. (Not sure what the name is…) Broad Street Bistro is always an awesome place to rendezvous with a friend in town on their cozy outdoor patio & they happen to have great coffee too. Always ood for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up or before going off to the Yuba River.
I love the orange sunshine from Curly Wolf
I love the Curly Wolf!! My favorite drinks are either a Summer Wolf or a honey latte with almond milk.
Cafe Latte (no sugar)!
My favorite (besides espresso at home) is the lavender latte from Curly Wolf!
The simple but oh so creamy and delicious latte from The Curly Wolf 🙂
My favorite coffee drink is a pressed 1/2 decaf macchiato (European kind) with 2 T of foam. No sugar.
The espresso in Venice Italy is my favorite, by all means.
Curly Wolfs iced lavender latte with milk, and their hazelnut latte.
Wow! I have patronized every one of those on your give-away list. Yeah, I could use a good cup of coffee.
What awesome coffee selections we have it this town! Fable is always on point
My grandmother once told me to not start drinking coffee until I was 40 because then I would really need it. Friday, the 6th, I will definitely be way over 40, so I think I do need a cup of coffee. 😉 Thanks for continuing to offer us tempting prizes!
Vanilla lattes all day long.❤
Me, me! Pick me! I’d love to have something to put in my pickle pottery mug that I have to pick up from you. Signed, Affogato Lover and Latte Connoisseur
I love a good latte – sometimes with full fat regular milk, sometimes with coconut milk – never any sweetener, but sometimes a sprinkle of cinnamon or cocoa. Hot 90% of the time and the occasional iced coffee with lots of room for cream! ♥
