Now that we’re all spending more time in our homes and less time buying coffee on the go, having a solid selection of morning coffee essentials is a no-brainer.
We’re not ones to use expensive espresso machines or high-tech coffee brewers, though. In fact, the coffee essentials in our everyday routine individually come in under $50 – you know we love to find both us and you a good deal on quality products.
If your coffee hasn’t been Starbucks quality lately, try out these recommendations to see how it elevates your morning routine!
Must-Have Morning Coffee Essentials
There’s a certain comfort in the warmth of a steaming-hot cup of coffee, as well as a calming reassurance that whatever’s in your mug is going to keep you going for the next few hours.
That is if you actually get to enjoy it before it’s gone cold and stale.
If you’re prone to forgetting your cup right after you’ve poured it, or you’re routinely active or distracted throughout the day, you may be looking for a way to keep all of your hot beverages from turning into cold brew – get a coffee mug warmer.
For a long time, getting a cup of coffee with someone meant sipping plain, hot, black coffee, but this is no longer the case.
If you’ve ever had a sip of coffee you likely have seen a milk frother.. but what exactly is it?
These gadgets generate tiny air bubbles by agitating the milk and the bubbles end up trapped in the liquid of choice. The bubbles continue to pile on top of one another until a pile of rich tasty foam is in the container, and then the foam can be added to a coffee drink.
Not only do the bubbles make the drink more appealing, but it also provides a bit of an exotic texture to the coffee drink. We all want to feel like we’re traveling to a better destination from the comfort of our kitchen, right?
When having guests visit or even if you have multiple coffee lovers in your home it’s best to have a variety.
You have to take into account that when we talk about coffee syrup, taste comes into play, and this tends to be very subjective and depends a lot on each person.
Say it with me: “Fresh-ground coffee will always taste better than pre-ground coffee.”
Now that we’re on the same page, let’s talk about the thing that’ll get you fresh grounds daily.
This grinder is easy to clean, too. Especially, the stainless steel cup that is easy to rinse. I’ll fill it with water and dish soap and blend for a minute every so often for a more thorough cleansing.
If you’re needing a little bit of extra “juice” to get you through the day, but don’t have time to make a full cup. This is going to be your savior. Each two-ounce shot is the equivalent of a cup of coffee.
