There’s nothing quite like a fresh cup of coffee from your favorite local coffee shop. The smell of freshly roasted beans, the sound of the milk frother as the barista whips up your latte… it’s a little piece of our morning ritual we’ve been craving during our stay at home. Since we can’t sit and enjoy our coffee at the shop, bring the aroma and ambiance home to make our morning routine that much more special.
And while you’re relaxing with your favorite beverage, why not get some pelvic floor training in? Grab your favorite roast, slip on your INNOVO shorts, and find a cozy spot for half an hour of much-earned me time while you effortlessly make strides toward living a leak-free life.
Listen to a coffee house playlist
One of the best things about coffee shops? The soundtrack. Baristas always seem to be in-the-know when it comes to new, hip music.
Bring your favorite coffee shop soundtrack home! Spotify has a whole section dedicated to coffee house playlists. From Coffee Table Jazz to Soul Coffee, you’ll be able to find your preferred sound in no time.
For added ambiance, check out ambient-mixer.com. With hundreds of user-made mixes, you can recreate the sounds of your local coffee shop. From milk steaming and plates shuffling to hushed conversations and even traffic passing by, these are great work-from-home soundtracks. This “Jazz in a Coffee Shop” playlist is a particular favorite of ours.
Level-up your brew
Nothing beats the smell of freshly-brewed coffee. One great way to really bring that fresh coffee smell home — and to support local businesses — is to grab your coffee shops’ ground coffee or whole beans and brew a fresh pot.
Here are a few of our favorites:
To really level-up your brewing experience, buy whole beans and invest in a coffee grinder! Grinding just before brewing preserves the natural oils on coffee beans and ensures the most flavor.
Try making a new drink
Stopping in your favorite coffee shop for the latest drink offerings can be so exciting! And with everyone making their coffee at home, we’re all looking to change things up once in a while.
The newest trend in coffee: Dalgona Coffee. This whipped treat has everyone talking! Check out the recipe here.
Change starts at home.
