Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and most of us accompany it with a cup of coffee. I hate to admit it, but I’m quite a religious coffee drinker. I like my morning cup, but sometimes it can feel a bit repetitive and boring. So, I came up with a few fun ways you can jazz up your morning coffee, adding some excitement to your mornings!
Start your day with a happy cup of coffee. Credit
Add Some Flavored Syrup
If you’ve a coffee-lover, then the taste of a fresh brew is enough to send your tongue to heaven. However, if you want to take your coffee to the next level, why not add some flavored syrup? All the big coffee shops have syrup that you can add to your drink (usually for an added price, I’m not sure why) and you can buy them for home too. There are so many flavours, including pumpkin spice, which is great during fall, along with a more Christmassy gingerbread. A teaspoon in your coffee is all it takes to give you some extra flavor every morning.
Try A Different Roast
Coffee comes in many different roasts, using different coffee beans. Most people tend to find a roast they like, and stick with it. A typical breakfast coffee tends to be a medium roast, so if you’ve been drinking that all your life, now’s the time to switch it up. You can go for a lighter roast or a darker one. Personally, I say give dark a try as some of the best dark roast coffee is made by Italian companies, and Italian coffee is superb! Obviously, if you’re a dark roast kinda gal, why not switch things up and change to medium or light for a few days per week? It gives you a chance to experiment with different flavors!
Make A Fancy Coffee
When I make coffee for myself, it’s usually something quite boring. It’s either a filter coffee or a standard americano, sometimes I just have it black. But, you can add some extra spice to your mornings by making a fancy little flat white, latte, or cappuccino. All you need is something to froth up and heat milk, and you’re good to go. There are loads of tutorials online to help you make any of these drinks, it just adds some extra fun to your mornings.
Have It Ice Cold
What about this; you make your normal morning coffee, then you shove it in a blender with loads of ice cubes! Just like that, you’ve got yourself an iced coffee! Add some extra milk or cream to the mix, and you can turn it into a milkshake of sorts too. A fun little idea to help wake you up even more with a jolt of coldness. Also, the perfect morning drink during the hot months of the year too.
Try each of these ideas during the week, and you’ve already got four alternatives to your normal morning coffee! Break the mold a little bit; have some fun first thing in the morning.
