    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!!

    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.

    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 love the Orange Sunshine. Always a winner with rich flavored espresso and just the right amount of sweetness!

    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 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. 🙂

    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!

    Denise Bryant says:

    A mocha is my favorite! Thanks for compiling this list Erin… some of these I have not checked out yet!

    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. 😉

    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!

    Larissa says:

    The Curly Wolf has the best lattes ever, hands down. Plus they invented the lavender latte! You can’t beat 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!

    Lillian Llacer says:

    I just love a small latte from Foxhound. It always makes me feel happy. Something about the chemical balance, feel, and flavor. Ahhh…

  19. Mike
    Mike says:

    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!

    Elyce Dobbins says:

    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.

    Free coffee?? I will take this as an opportunity to say how about that love walk yesterday. yuge turn out! Yuge.

    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.

    Wow! I have patronized every one of those on your give-away list. Yeah, I could use a good cup of coffee.

  24. Ingrid Knox
    Ingrid Knox says:

    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!

    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

  26. Kathryn Boswell
    Kathryn Boswell says:

    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! ♥
