If coffee is the way to your significant other’s heart, skip the fancy dinner and show him or her exactly how you feel with our valentine ideas, some tips are even inspired by coffee!
1. Start with a special Valentine’s breakfast
Start the day in a loving way by preparing your lover’s favourite morning treats. What does he or she like best? Is it eggs or pancakes? Smoothie or champagne? Don’t forget the best part: coffee! A coffee lover’s day is never complete without a good cup of coffee. Brew up what your special someone loves to drink in the morning and bring it in a distinctive mug. What a romantic gift!
2. Coffee with a love note
Don’t have time for breakfast together? Leave a love note with their favourite coffee! Have a chance to stop by their workplace? Bring a quick coffee with a little note. A great way to make your loved one’s day. Make it short but sweet (or funny). Here are a few amusing ideas:
I love you a whole latte
You’re the cream in my coffee
I can never espresso how important you are to me
3. Make a gift of their favourite coffee pods
Can you ever have too much of a good thing? Certainly not if you’re talking about coffee! Your coffee lover is sure to be pleased with this special gift. Knowing his or her coffee preferences shows that you really care. Does your lover have a taste for adventure? Try something new with the TASSIMO Variety Box or take a look at our helpful T DISC guide.
4. Go for a hike and grab a coffee to-go
Unwind this Valentine’s Day and go for a hike. Perhaps there are good hiking trails where you live, or you might want to look online and find the best hikes in your area. Afterwards go for a coffee to-go at your favourite coffee shop to warm up again!
5. Mix coffee inspired cocktails
Kick your Valentine’s Day up a notch and learn how to make classic coffee cocktails. There are so many coffee cocktails to choose from! Try delicious Espresso Martini’s, White Russians or a Chocolate Coffee Martini.
6. Bake something sweet and enjoy coffee together
Try our easy coffee recipes to surprise your sweetheart and he or she is sure to feel extra loved. They say that the way to the heart is through the stomach. For those with a sweet tooth, a coffee-based dessert should do the trick! Try baking a coffee cake or making a quick and easy (but delicious) Affogato. Have a go at our delicious coffee-based recipes or create your own!
7. Coffee Tasting at home
Expand your palate by exploring new coffee flavours with a coffee tasting at home. It’s a great way to explore new flavours, refine your coffee tasting skills and discover new delicious coffee blends with your loved one.
8. Cook a coffee & chocolate flavoured dinner
Food always tastes better when you spend time making it together. How about making an aphrodisiac inspired dinner? Chocolate and coffee will keep you two love birds going! From basic mole sauces and coffee rubs for meats, to delicious desserts like Tiramisu.
9. Take a ‘trip’ to Italy and enjoy an Italian doppio
You probably cannot take your lover on a dreamy Italian holiday right now. However, you can pretend that the two of you are visiting Rome with an Italian themed date night. Start with Italian wines, great pastas and Italian gelato for dessert. Don’t forget to end the night with a famous Italian coffee.
10. Take an (online) coffee art class
Learning new skills together helps you connect even more. Ask your favourite barista from your local coffee shop to host an (online) coffee art class.
