Like most people over quarantine, I developed a never-ending caffeine addiction. Along with my new found caffeine addiction, I became very fond of both Starbucks coffee and often caught myself parked in the drive-thru without realizing it. Who else has been there?! No shame!
With that being said, getting coffee out two or even three times a week can quickly add up and can drain your bank account in the blink of an eye. As my husband and I went into the month of March, we wanted to see it as a way to be disciplined and to save money with the intent of setting it aside for other expenses and savings.
However, this girl still needs her fuel. With all things else aside, I found that you can save major moolah with making your coffee at home. In this blog, I delve into what are some of why favorite coffee machines, mugs and accessories are.
There are many options in how you brew your coffee at home. Who knew?! With that being said, I personally use a Keurig that my parents recently gifted my husband and I. It is simple to use and you can make just about anything. You can buy pods by the bulk at your local Target, Walmart or supermarket store.
If you are feeling bold, however, try out some of the products I have linked below. The French Press, Pour Over and Cappuccino machines are all great ways to achieve the same end goal.
We all need some accessories to keep our lives a little more organized. With the Keurig, keeping pods together can also be quite a challenge. There are tabletop and more of a pantry-style option and //. I’ve also found out that you can buy Starbucks syrups and other sweeteners online. How cool?! There are also milk frothers and coffee bean grinders that make great additions to have in your arsenal.
Mugs are an important part of drinking coffee, am I right? hehe I’ve listed some of my favorite coffee mugs below! All are great options and all keep your coffee hot or cold, depending on your preference. Some are for more travel and on-the-go purposes with lids and others are for the leisurely enjoyment at home. Pick a mug, or three, that suits your style and get to sipping some of that homemade coffee.
What are some of your favorite at-home coffee recipes, both hot and iced? I would love to hear from you in the comments below! Until next time!
