Happy National Coffee Day

Hello and Happy National Coffee Day to Us!

Celebrating today means recognizing the full circle process that it takes for coffee to enter into our cup. smdlr is dedicated to documenting the independent shops whose crop to cup origins give us more than just momentary pleasure. The story of coffee is important; the source of coffee from its origins to the hands of dedicated farmers, growers, harvesters, roasters and baristas is what creates a worldwide community and culture that revolutionizes us with every sip.  While we know the world is celebrating, here’s  just a few national events we’ve learned about for you to watch, do, and drink during coffee’s big day.
