This Is How You Should Be Celebrating National Coffee Day

Celebrate National Coffee Day with a cup of coffee from a BLACK+DECKER Mill & Brew coffee machine. You will be able to select your coffee strength: regular, strong, or bold, and auto program your coffee to be ready at the exact time you want it to be. This allows you to have to freshest cup possible. You can drink your coffee black or incorporate it into your favorite recipes.

Chef Scottish Francis of Gossip Coffee in Astoria Queens uses coffee in his almond cold brew doughnuts. If you're in the area you should stop by and try his delicious recipe, but you can also make your own variation at home. Francis suggests replacing the liquid in your doughnut recipe for coffee.

You can also use your fresh brew for savory dishes:

Coffee-Marinated Bison Short Ribs

These bison short ribs are marinated in a mixture of coffee, salt, sugar, rosemary, and Worcestershire sauce to develop some truly bold flavors.
