Nothing can quite pull you out of bed like a steaming cup of coffee. If you love a cup of a.m. java, then you have probably established a routine whether you brew it at home or head to your local coffee shop. However, there are always ways to make your cup of Joe extra special. Here are a few ways to enliven your next cup of coffee.
Use a Milk Frother
If your go-to order at your local coffee shop is a cappuccino, then you’re in luck. The addition of a milk frother in your kitchen will help you prepare delicious drinks with satisfying foam on top. Simply prepare your coffee, pour in warm milk, and then froth milk separately and pour it on top for a satisfying finish. With a sprinkle of cinnamon and a metal straw, this frothy beverage will make your mornings.
Grind Your Own Beans
For a rich and flavorful cup of coffee, it is essential that you grind your own beans. Whole beans are surrounded by a protective layer that keeps the rich oils of the coffee intact. If you buy pre-ground coffee, those oils will dry out and result in a bland flavor. For the perfect cup, choose from this list of the year’s best grinders. Not only will your coffee taste better, but you’ll enjoy smelling the rich scent of freshly ground beans each morning.
There are a number of creative flavors to add to your coffee that you may already own! If you love floral notes, a splash of rose water makes for a delicious coffee beverage. If you’re a baker, you may have vanilla, almond, or another commonly used flavoring laying around. A couple of drops will give your morning java flavourful sweetness. If you’re feeling ambitious, try your hand at preparing your own lavender syrup. This recipe from The Spruce Eats will have you brightening your mornings with awakening flavor.
