National Coffee Day with Eight O’Clock Coffee & Friends

Thank-you to Eight O’Clock Coffee and the Mom It Forward Blogger Network for sponsoring today’s discussion.

National Coffee Day Eight O'Clock coffeeIt’s no secret that the Chases love their coffee. If you’ve spent any amount of personal time with us, most likely we’ve offered you a fresh brewed cup of java as well. Friends and coffee always seem to be the perfect setting.

I totally think that’s what made the setting for Friends so relateable for me. A group of friends discussing life in coffee shop = My.Entire.Life. Working at a coffee shop while I was in college or pursuing other careers made me feel like I could have walked onto the set of Friends and fit right in at any moment. In fact, several of the characters even worked part time at Central Perk in different seasons of the show too.  For instance, this scene could have been me and my friends:

Now that my days of working at a coffee shop are behind me, I brew coffee a lot at home and invite my friends over. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Friends premiere ( What??? Can you even believe its been TWENTY years?!?!), Eight O’Clock coffee Partnered with Warner Bros. to create the first ever Central Perk Roast- a limited edition inspired by the coffee shop that was the backdrop setting for so many memorable scenes that we all connected with.

In addition to the Limited Edition Central Perk Roast (available in stores and online for 6.99), Eight O’Clock Coffee fans can join in on the National Coffee Day celebration by visiting the Eight O’Clock Coffee’s Facebook page for a chance to win coffee prizes and a trip to L.A. to visit the Warner Brothers Studio.  If you happen to be New York, there will be a pop-up replica of Central Perk located in SoHo at 199 Lafayette Street ( at the corner of Broome Street) serving free cups of Eight O’Clock Coffee and featuring authentic memorabilia including the iconic orange couch and improve musical acts reminiscent of Phoebe’s “Smelly Cat”. The pop-up shop will open to the public Sept 17th- Oct 18th.

Make Sure you are following Eight O’Clock Coffee on Facebook and Twitter all year long for great promotions and deals! Other awesome Eight O’Clock Coffee Special Offers Available Now:

  • Save $3 when one Eight O’Clock Coffee bag (11oz. or larger) and one complete season of Friends on DVD are purchased together.
  • Purchase any three bags of Eight O’Clock Coffee and receive a FREE special limited edition Eight O’Clock Coffee Central Perk mug.

I think the best way for us to wrap up this post is with a round of “Smelly Cat” together! Also tell me which Friends character you most related to and why in the comments below!
