It’s time to spice up your baking life! This National Coffee Day, try swapping out your traditional flour with CoffeeFlour. This fun new product is made from dried coffee cherries, using leftover pulp to create a tasty and highly-nutritious culinary flour. But we should warn you, it actually tastes more like dried fruit than actual coffee, although it does contain a minimal amount of caffeine for those who need their daily jolt. Use it to make baked goods, sauces and soups. Learn where to buy this versatile ingredient that’s making the coffee industry more sustainable here.

If you’re around the NoMad district, go to HGU New York from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. on National Coffee Day, then stop by HGU New York for a complimentary cup of coffee. Toby’s Estate will be hosting latte art, and the 1905 lounge will be serving up their Brooklyn Blend, which has hints of cocoa, graham cracker, toasted hazelnuts, and toffee — yum! If you prefer a decaffeinated version, you can sip on Toby Estate’s Colombia Ghost Town Blend. This mix is sweet and round, with a subtle malt flavor. Plus, its creamy body is filled with rich notes of white chocolate. We have a feeling that those with a sweet tooth will enjoy these two options in the morning.
