There’s no better way to kick off Valentine’s Day morning than with a coffee. Unique coffee recipes using compostable Nespresso pods , flavoured coffee syrups and chocolate flakes make the perfect start to the day.

Savouring a thoughtfully crafted, aromatic coffee drink in bed sets the tone for a cosy day filled with quality time.

Coffee Tools You May Need

Before getting started, make sure you have these staples on hand because you’ll most likely use them for any of the recipes:

  • Spoons - Long-handled spoons are ideal for stirring in sugar, honey or syrups - and handy for scooping up frothy goodness from the bottom of the mug!

  • Whisk - A small whisk is useful for whipping up cream by hand

  • Milk steaming jug - A simple, one-step solution for creating creamy latte foam.

  • Coffee grinder - Freshly ground beans unlock your coffee’s full flavour potential. A manual grinder is a charming and effective choice for small batches, while an electronic grinder will do the trick for larger pots (or if you’re lazy).

  • Equipment for your chosen brewing method - Whether you like French press , Aeropress or Chemex , get your brewer ready!
