Over the last 19 years, Austin and I have connected with one another over a cup of coffee. There’s just something about sitting down with a hot cup of our favorite brew and chatting. When we were dating, our favorite thing to do was to sit in coffee shops for hours and talk.
Getting to coffee shops regularly hasn’t been easy for us in the last many years. That is where at home coffee date nights has been so important.
How to Have a Successful At Home Coffee Date
There’s a few things that I suggest you put in place in order to have a successful at home, coffee date night. Here’s some things to keep in mind:
Establish a place to sit-
Austin and I purchased a bistro table a few years ago that we can sit at for our at home date nights. Before we bought that table, we have designated other areas as date night areas. Figure out what part of your house works best for you both.
To put yourself in the right mind, get dressed in something that makes you feel good about the way you look.
Bring out nice coffee mugs-
If you don’t own nice coffee mugs for your date night, then purchase two that you only use for those times. Setting aside specific mugs for your date will make the time feel even more set apart.
Brew great coffee-
In the recent years, I have become a little bit of a coffee snob. Ever since I started drinking it black, I’ve made sure that I am buying higher quality brands.
Typically on date nights, we try to do something out of the ordinary with our drink. We’ve had the privilege of using Keurig coffee makers, and I would say that it makes is very easy to liven up your normal cup of joe.
Keurig Coffee Maker Is A Good Date Night Investment
If you have never used a Keurig before, it is certainly something worth considering. Many businesses have these out in their lobby area. In fact, my friend has one in his office, where I work sometimes, and at his house. I’ve really enjoyed the selection of flavors and coffee types that you can purchase for these pots.
A Keurig machine would be a good investment for at home date nights. In fact, it would be worth the investment if you find yourself purchasing a lot of specialty coffees during the week. While this pot may not be the best idea for the super frugal family, it is a good idea for those that want a high quality cup of coffee every time.
Check Out Keurig Coffee Maker Reviews
If you decide to go with a Keurig, I suggest you check out keurig coffee maker reviews before you purchase it. Each of the different Keurig coffee pots have different functionalities. Depending on your personal needs, will determine which of these pots is best for you.
In my personal experience, I’ve used the Keurig 2.0. It is important to note that this machine requires you to purchase the Keurig brand k-cups. There is a sensor in the machine that reads the top of the k-cup.
Since this is an investment, it is always a good idea to research before making a purchase.
