7 Ways to Brighten Your Holidays with Coffee
#1 Look For Seasonal Roasts
During the holiday seasons and different times of the year, many roasters will make a special blend of beans that are perfect for the holidays.
In the fall, many will make a pumpkin flavoured blend, and during the Christmas season, you will find roasters who will do gingerbread flavours, peppermint, and more.
We have featured Horsham Coffee Roasters before! Their coffees are delicious.
Those flavours can definitely brighten your holiday as you sip your coffee by the roasting fire.
#2 Gifting Coffee to Friends and Family
Nothing lightens the holiday spirit like giving gifts, so why not gift some coffee to your friends and family?
You can start by giving them a gift subscription to Blue Coffee Box. It’s our favorite subscription box ever!
#3 Dress Up Those Gifts for the Holiday Season
If you have already given them a gift subscription box, find coffee-inspired gifts and dress them up for the holidays.
You can give chocolate covered spoons, festive coffee mugs and more.
#4 Pair Your Coffee with the Perfect Foodie Bite
When it comes to pairing delicious coffee flavours with amazing food choices for your holiday gift-giving and such, you want to make sure to match your food with your coffee flavours.
The best way to do that is to look at the tasting notes on the coffee packaging.
For example, a holiday blended coffee may have tasting notes of sweet maple, so a perfect pairing out be to make a delicious breakfast casserole with fresh sage, or a batch of delicious homemade waffles.
If you find yourself with a coffee flavour that has notes of cocoa and toasted nuts pair it with sweet treats like coffee cake or cinnamon rolls.
#5 Coffee Brings Friends and Family Together
Have you noticed that during the holidays, more and more people meet up for coffee dates than any other time of the year?
Why not invite a few friends over and have a cup tasting party? You can celebrate the season and bring all your friends together in one place.
#6 Coffee Can Help You Deal With the Stress of the Holiday Season
Yes — for some people, the holidays can bring on stress. There are those who are not fans of wrapping gifts, or the hustle and bustle that the holidays bring in.
Coffee can help calm them down and bring them a sense of peace during the holiday season.
#7 Coffee is the Perfect Travel Buddy
Everyone says that home is where you set your awesome coffee mug, but let’s get real — with all of those holiday vacations and travel plans coming up in the following weeks, don’t forget that coffee makes for a great companion in the passenger’s seat.
You can take your coffee with you — whether you have whole beans or coffee grounds. Because of their vacuum seal, coffee travels well whether you ship it or fly with it.
Just think — waking up and having your coffee instead of the hotel coffee. It will definitely make a difference in your holiday travels right?
In all seriousness, I know it sounds cliche that coffee can make your holidays brighter, but if you are a true coffee connoisseur, coffee always brightens your day no matter if it’s the holidays or not.
