10 Ways to Mix Up Your Morning Coffee Routine

Do you live on coffee but feel bored with your daily cup? If your morning isn’t complete without a cup of magic bean water, but you need a change, don’t worry. It happens to everyone now and then. And luckily, there’s an easy solution. Try making a change to the way you prepare your morning brew.

10 Ways to Mix Up Your Morning Coffee Routine

Give yourself a bean boost

Variety is the spice of life, which also rings true for your coffee beans. Stop using the cheapest beans or the same brand you always use.

Treat yourself and level up your fresh roasted coffee with a quality bean. Your taste buds will thank you!

Experiment with the grind

Sure, it’s easy and convenient to buy pre-ground coffee, but it’s always the same, medium grind. You get more control over your coffee experience and can experiment with different brewing methods. 

A finer grind gives you faster extraction, while a coarse grind takes time to deliver that sweet, sweet bean water.

Become a water snob

Do you make your morning cup with tap water? Try using cleaner water to brew your coffee. No matter what brew method, filtered, purified, or distilled water makes a more sterile, tastier cup of coffee.

Try new brewing methods

You have a wide selection of coffee machines available, but you also have several methods. Why not pick up a French press or pour-over to mix things up and experiment? Make sure you use the appropriate grind for the brew method you choose.

Play barista at home

You can make fancy drinks at home with the right supplies and know-how. Hop on YouTube and learn how to create something new, like a latte or dry cappuccino

It won’t just liven up your coffee routine; it will impress your friends and family.

Experiment with coffee add-ins

Syrups, sweeteners, and creamers can give your morning coffee a boost in taste and texture. You have hundreds of options, including non-dairy and sugar-free for those with dietary restrictions.

Spice up your coffee grounds

If you have spices at home, try adding them to your coffee grounds before brewing. Nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and cardamom are excellent options for a little kick. 

Clean your brewing tools regularly

It might seem painful, but cleaning your brewing equipment can significantly impact your coffee quality. Residue builds up in everything and leaves a less-than-satisfactory taste behind.

Consider cold brew

A cold brew takes longer, but you can set it at night and have it ready in the morning. This method ensures that the coffee maintains the natural acidity for a pleasantly smooth, flavorful drink. 

You don’t need special tools to craft an incredible cold brew at home

Upgrade your coffee bean storage

Air exposure harms coffee beans by releasing some gasses locked in during roasting. You need an air-tight container that doesn’t let light reach those precious beans. Keep them in a cooler, dark place for the best results.

Before you go

Coffee might be the thing that gets you going in the morning, but it doesn’t have to be the same old routine. Spice things up with minor changes, even if it’s just on weekends or special occasions.
