In case you didn’t know, October 1st is International Coffee Day. Even if it isn’t an official holiday, there will be many discounts and free coffee going around. And also, you know, coffee gives me life in the morning. So, there are a lot of good reasons to celebrate.

First things first, you can learn about the promotions going on in the States here. For other parts of the world, you can go to the International Coffee day website here.  In Canada, sadly, there doesn’t seem to be a lot happening. However, Krispy Kreme Canada is rising to the occasion. 

If you can’t get a hold of a free cup of coffee, there are many other ways to celebrate!

1.Obviously, you can start by indulging in a great cup of coffee. If you are in Montreal, I highly recommend either Le brûloir in Ahuntsic and Cafe Differance in Old Montreal.


2. If you are motivated, you can make your own fancy latte. A homemade cinnamon dolce latte, doesn’t that sound delicious? (If you are not motivated yet, you can drink a cup of regular coffee and think again.)

My name is Isabelle (Zaza for the few people who knew me way back then). I am writing to you from my pink office in Montréal, Québec. As a French literature graduate, I soon realized that teaching was not for me and I am now working in an office. I love mountains, trees, soup, and books. In recent years, my passion for food grew bigger and bigger. As a result, I am now going out of my comfort zone in the kitchen and trying to be more adventurous. I invite you to follow me on my journey to learn new techniques, conquer desserts and find exquisite recipes. Along the way, I plan to share what excites me, may it be a newly discovered restaurant, book, artist or Etsy find.
