Let’s face it. There aren’t many things in life better than a hot cup of coffee. Coffee is what gets many of us out of bed in the mornings. It gives you that afternoon pick-me-up when we’ve hit that 3 pm slump. Heck, it even helps us push through late nights at the office. It’s safe to say we love coffee. In honor of International Coffee Day on September 29th, here are seven reasons why we love coffee.
Coffee is comforting. Hot beverages in general soften the pace of life. (You can’t guzzle a hot cup of coffee; it must be enjoyed slowly). While you slowly sip and wait for that optimum comfortable drinking temperature, you can inhale the warm, smooth and earthy aroma from your favorite set of coffee mugs. Don’t you feel comforted already?
Coffee can be enjoyed any way you like. Keep it basic black, add a splash of your favorite plant-based milk, stir in a spoonful of organic coconut sugar or a squeeze of sweet agave nectar, or dress it up with a dollop of cream and chocolate shavings. Your mug of coffee is as unique as you, so get creative!
Luckily for us, coffee can be enjoyed anywhere. You can enjoy your favorite cup of coffee in your local community coffeehouse or cafe, but coffee can also be enjoyed on the go. Just grab a hot beverage thermos or coffee carrier cup and casually sip and enjoy no matter where your day takes you.
Breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day, and no matter if you prefer to start your day in a savory or sweet way, coffee pairs well with either option. Sip, sip hooray!
Coffee gets you up in the mornings and helps you to be a fully functioning adult, but coffee can also give you that afternoon pick-me-up when you’ve hit that afternoon slump at the office. Grab a cup of coffee from the office coffee counter or head out for a quick walk around the block to the nearest coffee shop. No matter which you prefer, coffee gets you through the day!
Just like coffee pairs perfectly with breakfast and that afternoon office slump, coffee compliments any after dinner dessert. (Is anyone else picking up on the fact that coffee goes with everything?) We like a hot cup of coffee with a piece of almond pistachio biscotti or almond chocolate biscotti. Yum!
Okay, some of you may think this one is a stretch, but hear us out. Coffee keeps relationships alive. It’s true! Think about it. How many times have you told a family member or friend, let’s have a coffee date? Seriously, what would we do without coffee? Bonus: You may even meet someone new over coffee!
