3 Great Brands To Celebrate National Coffee Day 2018 With

National Coffee Day is coming up in a few days on September 29th. Since 2015, the tradition of National Coffee Day has been viewed as an occasion to promote and celebrate coffee as a beverage.

In the spirit of National Coffee Day, McCafé recently conducted a national survey and published interesting insights on American adults’ love of coffee. Below are some fun findings from the survey:

– Coffee Over Hygiene — 52 percent of frequent coffee drinkers would prioritize drinking coffee over taking a shower. 34 percent of respondents said they would prioritize drinking coffee over brushing their teeth if they only had a few minutes to get ready in the morning.
– Perking Up Over Logging On — 50 percent of frequent coffee drinkers would be more willing to spend a day without their smartphone than abstain from coffee for a whole 24 hours.
– Coffee Over Chocolate — 55 percent of Americans would give up chocolate before they’d give up coffee for 6 months.
– What A Cup Of Coffee Is Worth — New Yorkers would shell out the most money for the last cold coffee on a hot day, they would pay $33! Chicago residents and Angelenos would pay up to $20 for the last cold coffee.

Speaking of McCafé, last month Spotify’s New York City office hosted a special “pre-summ-ahh Friday party” to celebrate the launch of the new Bottled McCafé Frappés. The rooftop event featured musical entertainment from celebrity DJ, artist and designer Va$htie Kola, who spun some of Summer 2018’s hottest feel-good songs from Bottled McCafé Frappés’ new Spotify Playlist as guests danced far into the evening. Throughout the night, guests also uncapped the rich, creamy and delicious flavor of Bottled McCafé Frappés, which currently come in three flavors: Caramel, Vanilla, and Mocha.

For those looking to drink some freshly-made coffee at home or at the office, Purity Coffee is known as “coffee crafted for health.” Started by Andrew Salisbury and wife Amber, Purity Coffee only sources organic beans and tests all green coffee for mold, pesticides, and Ochratoxin A. The brand also uses a unique roasting protocol to retain maximum antioxidants in coffee beans while completely avoiding PAH development and reducing the amount of Acrylamide. Purity stores its green beans for 15 months, roasting only according to the number of orders received, and shipping the roasted beans to the customer within 48 hours of roasting in bags flushed with nitrogen.

Purity makes its coffee available as part of a $1 sample bag. More information on that and the brand’s pods and subscription plans can be found online at

If you don’t just like to drink coffee but also want to wear it, Mr. Bean’s All-Natural Coffee Body Scrubs are definitely worth looking into. Bean’s scrubs use the highest-quality, cold-pressed coconut oil blended with naturally sourced Arabica coffee beans to exfoliate and cleanse. Proven to brighten your skin — and subsequently your day — Bean’s scrubs are bursting with natural ingredients that have been formulated to bring out the very best in your skin. Combining these wonder ingredients is how Bean combats all sorts of skin conditions such as eczema, acne, stretch marks, psoriasis, dry skin, cellulite, anti-aging, blackheads, age spots, varicose veins & skin blemishes.

I had the pleasure of trying out both the Peppermint and Coconut varieties of Mr. Bean’s All-Natural Coffee Body Scrubs. Organic, vegan-friendly, naturally-sourced and packaged appealingly, I would not hesitation to try out the brand’s Mandarin or Coco-Berry all-natural coffee scrubs.
