Nags Head Neighbor says, “Best coffee on the Outer Banks!”

Look at these roaring beach beauties! Meet Marina, Cindy, Bri, Amy and Annalise. They are our friends from the Food Lion (Get it? Roar?) next door to our Nags Head location, and they come in every day for a cup of coffee to help them get through their shift. Some of them have been coming in for the last 6 years to get, what Marina calls, “The best cup of coffee on the Outer Banks!” She also says she loves her Nags Head Front Porch crew, and aside from getting her morning fix, she enjoys talking to Sarah, the Nags Head manager, and all the other ladies that keep the staff at the Food Lion well-caffeinated.

DID YOU KNOW?

 

Rick, one of the managers at Food Lion (who probably stayed at the store to keep things running the day this photo was taken – sometimes the staff brings his coffee to him) orders a large mocha. But did you know that Mocha is a city in Yemen and a coffee name – NOT a reference to chocolate? A “mocha” is actually coffee flavored chocolate, not chocolate flavored coffee.

Caffeinated Love Notes

We have another Front Porch Café love story for you as we continue to celebrate our 20 year anniversary – and this one is guaranteed to make you say, “Awe!”

 

Kimberly Parks is the owner and master stylist at Bangs Salon, which happens to be in the same Milepost 6 shopping center as our Kill Devil Hills Front Porch location.

 

For the last eight years, Kimberly’s sweet husband, Brian, has made it his daily routine to stop into our coffee shop, pay for his wife’s coffee, and use our staff’s trusty Sharpie marker to write a sweet love note on Kimberly’s coffee cup. Then he leaves it for Kimberly to come in and pick up before she starts her work day at the salon. When she swings by our shop, the staff is ready with her hot cup of the best coffee on the beach, and a little love from her hubby.

 

I mean – how cute is THAT?

 

A few years ago, it occurred to Kimberly to begin photo-documenting the cups. She has hundreds of them captured now to remember forever. We’ve included a photo collage with just a small sampling of these priceless caffeinated love notes!

Jennifer and Nick’s Front Porch Cafe Love Story

As we celebrate 20 years of Front Porch Café serving the Outer Banks, we are so excited to hear all of the many stories from our family of customers – both our beloved locals, and our dear friends who visit from other parts of the country and world.

 

We want to share one of our favorites with you right now. It’s a love story, and we’ll let our long-time customer Jennifer tell you in her own words.

 

“Happy Anniversary Front Porch! Thank you for being part of my love story!
My husband brought me to Front Porch on my first visit to the Outer Banks and I’ve been a regular ever since. On December 26, 2015 he proposed by sending me on a scavenger hunt. Of course Front Porch was on the list! A special thanks to the baristas for not only serving me a nice warm chai that day, but also the map and shovel that led me to my happily ever after! Front Porch is my home away from home, showcasing my art, selling my mini-love notes and so much more.”

-Jennifer Spore, Outer Banks local, Team Front Porch Café

 

 

We were thrilled to be part of Jennifer and Nick’s heartwarming story and happy marriage!

CBD Arrives at Front Porch Cafe

Want even more of a boost from your brew? Our CBD coffee is just the thing for you!

 

CBD: you’ve heard about it from friends, you’ve read about it on social media, you’ve maybe even seen stories in the news about this new phenomenon sweeping the country. And now, you’re seeing it in your favorite local coffee shop. That’s right – your Nags Head Front Porch Café is now serving up steaming cups of CBD-infused coffee.

 

But you might be wondering – what exactly IS it? Among all of the buzz around CBD lies an air of mystery. Is it the same thing as marijuana? Is it legal? Will it get me high?

 

If you’re asking yourself these questions – you’re not alone. A new emerging trend in the world of health and wellness, CBD is not nearly as mysterious and confusing as some may think. So let’s see if we can debunk some of the myths and uncover the fascinating truths about this natural, plant-derived substance.

 

What is CBD? Well, it’s actually just an acronym for the word Cannabidiol, which is a naturally occurring compound extracted from the hemp plant. It’s completely non-psychoactive, which means it will not produce any mind-altering effects, it will not get you high, and it will not interfere with your ability to work and function. Unlike what’s commonly known as “pot,” CBD contains no THC.

 

Now that we’re clear on what CBD doesn’t do, let’s talk about all of the amazing things it DOES in fact do – especially when paired with America’s favorite drink: COFFEE!

 

CBD provides a vast array of therapeutic benefits. The healing properties it possesses can aid with chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, and nausea. It’s an antioxidant, anti-spasmatic, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumoral, and anti-bacterial. Many users of CBD have reported that their chronic pain has subsided, their mood has elevated, and their general sense of physical well-being has improved.

 

And when you pair CBD with coffee, a synergistic effect occurs. A CBD-infused hot cup of happiness can deliver the same energizing jolt we’re used to from coffee without the jitters that caffeine can sometimes induce. So CBD coffee can provide stimulation and energy minus the edge. Plus, CBD paired with coffee is considered a super-food because it’s a powerful blend of two antioxidants – a substance with proven cancer-destroying abilities.

 

But don’t take our word for it. Stop into our Nags Head Front Porch Café and order a cup of our CBD-infused Blue Bali – one of our favorite beans that offers a sweet, rich, full-bodied flavor — for yourself, and see what kind of magic happens. We make our CBD coffee for you on our Trifecta machine – our state of the art single-cup brewing system that guarantees one of the best and freshest cups of coffee you’ll ever have. If you haven’t tried a cup from our Trifecta machine, or CBD coffee, we suggest you visit us and see for yourself what this new and exciting coffee experience is all about!
