Coffee inspires me! It starts my day off right! It pulls me through long days! It is a go to for comfort for me! These days I am trying to be more mindful about even the simple things, like coffee, that really inspire me. It is so easy to not think very much about grabbing that morning or afternoon cup of joe, but the smell, the taste, the art of the whole experience is definitely something to take notice of.
So, I created a coffee corner in my home as a reminder that coffee is more than just a habit, it also inspires me. My Hamilton Beach coffee maker has been great. I can make a full pot of coffee or a make a single cup. Most days, I set the timer in the evening to make a full pot of coffee in the morning so I can wake up to freshly brewed coffee. I also love my Cuisinart coffee grinder! The smell & taste of freshly ground coffee is hard to beat!
Another little gem in my coffee corner is my Nespresso machine. Being able to make a quick latte or a simple shot of expresso is fantastic. I just pop a little pod into the machine attach the milk container if I'm making a latte & away we go! A cup of inspiration just like that!
Like everything in my home these days, I'm trying to keep things simple & clutter free. So, while establishing my coffee corner, I made sure that my coffee cabinet was up to par too! Simple white mugs on the bottom, then a coffee canister & beans, to go mugs, espresso cups & saucers, & up top some seasonal mugs just for fun! The cabinet is stream lined & functional with only the things that we need & use.
If coffee inspires you, don't let it just be a routine habit, really enjoy the experience. Whether you are relaxing at home or on the go, always take at least a moment or two to be mindful of the things that inspire you!
