As I get older, my theory that coffee keeps the world turning seems to inch closer and closer to becoming scientific evidence. I personally can't function in the morning without a cup of coffee in my system and I know I'm not alone. There's something truly special about a hot cup of goodness that makes mornings just a little more bearable.
When it comes to the local coffee shop scene, there's something to be said about the energy and comfort of a neighborhood cafe. I might even go as far as saying it's therapeutic. With that said, coffee shops are one of my very favorite things to explore and I was pretty excited to learn about the Coffee Passport.
The Coffee Passport is like your ticket to a curated coffee tour of Pittsburgh. Each card is $20 and gets you one beverage at ten different locally-owned, independent shops. The specials at each shop range from a traditional cup of coffee to specialty lattes and espresso. Non-coffee drinkers: they have you covered too. Each menu offers some type non-coffee beverage or tea.
Ten coffee drinks for twenty bucks, support for local business, and the chance to visit new neighborhoods? It didn't take much more convincing.
There are two different passport versions available and each are valid for six months. (Please note they do expire so be sure to take advantage of your passport before the expiration date.) Once you make it through your first coffee scavenger hunt, there's a second set of cafes cued up on passport 2.
If you're ready to check it out, head over to the website to order your passport or stop into any of the participating shops. If you buy online, your passport will be mailed to you within two weeks.
Give the Coffee Passport team a follow on Instagram to keep up with news, announcements, and shop features. And if you happen to snag yourself a passport, let me know! Let's plan a coffee date. I love meeting new people and if you can't tell by now I certainly love a good coffee shop.
