Coffee, Cocoa, Affogato, Nevada City, photos by Erin Thiem

The temperatures are dropping and now is the perfect time to go find your perfect warm beverage.  Nevada City & Grass Valley have lots of great coffee shops, cafes and places to grab hot drink.  The Outside Inn did a fun post for National Coffee Day, but I thought it was time we gave a little love to hot chocolates, affogatos and mochas.  The photographs above include hot chocolate from Carolines Coffee, Treats and Nevada City Chocolate Shoppe.  Also showcased is an affogato from Treats, Peppermint Mocha from Carolines Coffee, Pumpkin Spice Latte from Summer Thymes, latte from Fable Coffee and a peppermint mocha from Carolines Coffee.  Last week I did a fun giveaway on the Inn Town Campground’s blog and loved the personalized bag of coffee so much I got a few extra for gifts, but thought, why not have a little giveaway over here too?  Below is a wood crate, two Outside Inn ceramic mugs and a special bag of Inn Town Campground coffee (from Carolines Coffee).  The winner of the coffee and mugs will be announced on Monday, December 28th.  If you’re a Carolines Coffee fan, check out their 12 Days of Christmas giveaways.  And… in the spirit of giveaways, time is running out to post a comment on the huge end of the year giveaway, click here, to post a comment and be in the draw for the prize worth $2300.  I have to say that I am so touched by all the comments so far, thank  you to all the readers of this blog for taking time to play along.

    Loves me a good “cup O joe” when I take my old dog Jed for a walk… Well I guess I should say “drag”… He’s not as spry as he once was.. But a stron cup gives me the strength to get him home.

    I had never heard of affogatos before. Now I have to have one! I think I’ll swing by Treats later today after I deliver the recording of the Sierra Master Chorale concert to KVMR.

      It’s the French Roast from Carolines, so it’s special because it has a fun custom label, but otherwise it’s not a special roast.
