8 Must-Haves for Coffee Lovers

It seems like coffee tastes extra delicious in the fall, right? The good news is, it’s fall! We used to frequent coffee shops with the best of ’em, but a few years ago, we decided to take the leap and invest in our very own fancy set-up. It’s one of the best investments we ever made. There’s something about the whole sensory experience within the comfort of your own home. So, if you’re thinking about swapping expensive cups of joe to-go for the convenience of your own café, I have some tried and true recommendations. Shop these 8 Must-Haves for Coffee Lovers for the perfect set-up.

I don’t need an inspirational quote right now. I need coffee.

8 Must-Haves for Coffee Lovers

1 + 2 | Breville Espresso Machine + Frother

The Breville Espresso Machine is no doubt a heavy investment. We’ve had ours for 5+ years and she still purrs like a kitten. She has a built-in frother that works fine, but if you looooove extra fluffy froth, the separate Breville Frother delivers extra special goodness.

3 | YETI Rambler Mug

I like to savor my coffee and get annoyed when it cools too quickly. The YETI Rambler Mug keeps your good-good piping hot to the last drop.

4 | Mayorga Organics Cubano Coffee

Mayorga Organics Cubano Coffee is a delicious dark roast whole bean coffee. We’re coffee bean snobs who nixed several bags until we discovered this one. Trust me, try it.

5 | Oat Milk

Any plant-based milk will do, but Oatly and Califia Farms are our personal faves. –Especially because they’re carrageenan-free.

6 | Pure Maple Syrup

Pure Maple Syrup. Yes, you read that correctly. If you like your coffee extra like me, grab your sweetener of choice. I’ve found pure maple syrup delivers the rich taste I love plus antioxidant compounds with anti-diabetic, anti-cancer, and anti-bacterial properties, to boot.

7| Ceylon Cinnamon

We like to top our froth with a couple of cinnamon shakes. The reason we choose Ceylon cinnamon over regular cinnamon is because it contains antioxidant compounds, digestive benefits, and potential antimicrobial and anti-parasitic properties. And Ceylon doesn’t have the chemical coumarin in it, which is toxic to the liver and kidneys.

8 | Motivational Spoon

The Be Fierce Today Spoon is not so much a must-have as a fun-to-have. Why not add a little motivation to your potion. —Amiright?
