Get Your Daily Dose of Caffeine this National Coffee Day in Baltimore

September 23, 2021

Looking for an excuse to get an extra cup (or two) of coffee for your morning routine? Well, mark your calendar for September 29th, National Coffee Day, and start thinking about what kind of cup you’re going to treat yourself to. An espresso? Latte? Black Coffee? The choice is yours!

Before you take this day to celebrate your love of coffee, take some time to consider the history of how this delicious, warm drink has ended up in your hand. 

Coffee appears to date back to the 15th century, with Sufi monasteries in Yemen roasting the beans and brewing coffee. Traders began bringing coffee back to their homelands and soon, coffee spread from the Middle East in Europe, Indonesia, and the Americas. 

For Americans, National Coffee Day is often just another day of drinking the beverage. On an average day, Americans collectively drink around 400 million cups of coffee!

Whether you’re a regular or occasional coffee-drinker, take advantage of National Coffee Day by exploring the best coffee that Baltimore has to offer!

Ceremony Coffee Roasters

Roll out of 1305 Dock Street and head over to our fellow Harbor Point neighbors, Ceremony Coffee. Only about a minute walk from your apartment, this is the perfect coffee shop for you to start frequenting.

Aveley Farms Coffee Roasters

If you’re looking for a high quality, sustainable cup of coffee just steps from your door, check out Aveley Farms Coffee Roasters in Harbor East. The story of this coffee shop begins with a coffee-lover who drank a cup of coffee directly sourced from Guatemala. That singular cup of coffee inspired this shop, where you can get a cup brewed right in front of you, or buy some of their grounds and learn how to make a cup just like it.

Daily Grind

Also within walking distance, you can find Daily Grind. Daily Grint is located in Fells Point. Appreciate the quirky charm of Fells Point by checking out this local favorite coffee shop. Make sure to get your coffee with one of their mouth-watering pastries, bagels, sandwiches, soups, or desserts!
