Coffee drinkers the world over depend on their brew to help them wake up and to give them an energy boost throughout their day. Some people use coffee drinking as a way to socialize and interact with others. Coffee drinking is also a nice way to relax and unwind after a long day.
These are all well known facts, what may not be so well known is that coffee can be romantic. You may find this hard to believe, but it is true, coffee can be a rather romantic activity if gone about the right way. If you are a coffee drinker and would like to make your next coffee time with your mate more romantic, read on for more information.
Set the mood by preparing your mate’s favorite coffee, pour some into their favorite mug (or gift them a special new one) and fix it the way they like it. Put the coffees on a tray and carry it outside to a small table. Light a couple of candles if it feels right to you and then ask your mate to join you outside. Other ways you can enhance this idea is by playing soft music in the background, put flowers in vase on the table or tray and having a blanket ready in case it gets chilly outside.
Sit together and sip your coffees and enjoy the splendor of another beautiful sunset. You might even try sharing each other’s coffees if they are fixed up differently. Sharing things can inspire feelings of being connected.
If you are both early risers, then this is an idea for you. Brew the coffee, make some sort of breakfast item if one or both of you eat breakfast. Have one flower of their favorite variety in a vase and put it on a tray (a large cutting board works in a pinch), along with the coffees and take them outside or to the nearest window with a view of the sunrise. Wake up your mate, if they are not already awake, and ask them to join you at your chosen spot.
Sunrise is a special time of day because the world is not yet hustling and bustling yet. Everything seems to have a peaceful calm to it. You and your mate can slowly wake up with your coffee and enjoy that special quiet time together.
This type of picnic isn’t about the food, it is about sharing some great coffee in a beautiful place. Start by choosing your destination carefully. You want a place that both you and your mate will enjoy such as a spot by a lake or in a nice park. You can even choose a spot off the beaten path if it has a scenic view. This type of picnic is really nice in Autumn when the leaves are changing colors and the air is cooler.
Once you have your spot picked out, it is time to prepare the picnic basket with goodies. Brew your coffee and pour it into a thermos. Gather cream, sugar, spoons and napkins and put them into containers to make them ready for travel. You can pack regular coffee mugs or travel mugs, that is up to you. Next, pack some sort of cookies or other snack items. Remember, this picnic is not about food, it is about coffee. You will want to pack a blanket to spread your items out on once you arrive at your destination.
When the hustle and bustle of the day is over and it is time to relax, coffee can set the mood for romance. Slip into the kitchen to prepare everything. Start with brewing a nice light roast coffee (decaf might be a good choice for early evening consumption). Next fix your mate’s coffee the way they like it and take into the area where you will be relaxing. Dim the lights or light candles and find something on TV that will keep the mood light. You can also opt for romantic music instead of turning on the TV.
Some of the most romantic moments can take place doing the most mundane things. Cuddling together on the sofa while sipping on coffee is not particularly earth shattering, but it is comfortable and special in its own way.
It is possible to turn a coffee shop trip into a romantic date. You can bring in your own special touches like a flameless candle, a pretty silk flower and dressing up just a little bit. With these small additions, you can turn that small table into a intimate setting for your date. Your mate will no doubt remember that coffee trip for a long time to come. It might even become a something special you do once a year or more often.
Who says you have to have alcohol to make time spent together romantic? All it takes is the right place, the right coffee and the right couple to create a romantic, special time. Coffee can be a very comforting beverage and you can enjoy a special moment with your sweetheart any time there is coffee.
You can enhance coffee time by sitting outside and enjoying the sunset together or by cuddling on the sofa while watching TV. The sunrise can become a special time for the two of you to enjoy your morning brew and some quiet moments together. With the help of a satisfying cup of coffee, you are halfway to creating a romantic mood.
