Whether you love coffee or not, everyones loves a good cafe moment – a time where you can just sit and unwind with a cup of your favourite beverage. Ever wondered why a new cafe is popping up at every street corner every so often? There are many reasons beyond coffee that draws us to the cafe culture. Cafes provide a comfortable space to take a break from work or home – from life and the daily grind. It serves as a neutral place for casual meetings, for catching up with old friends or meeting new ones and many just go there alone to work or study. Throw in cool interior spaces, pretty food, sweet cakes and pastries, add some nice music to go with it all, and you have an intoxicating mix of mood boosters that makes you crave for more.
Sometimes there seems nothing better than whiling away the hours, sitting in a cafe corner by the window sipping a latte, chatting with friends and people watching right? Or the excitement of finding a new cafe to add to your cafe-hopping wish list? Well, that kind of freedom is a little out of reach right now with a raging pandemic that does not seem to wane. So, the next best thing is having your own Cafe @ Home. Because you can enjoy that cafe vibe, relax and unwind in the comfort of your own home anytime you wish!
Take away the cafe style that you love. Bring it home and create your own favourite cafe feel and make beautiful moments to enjoy in your own space and time. You do not actually need fancy equipment to make good coffee at home. Easily make coffee the slow brew style with only a simple drip coffee filter. And for the price of a few lattes you can buy several really nice ceramic mugs to use every day. Invest in some cute tableware, a couple of wooden plates and trays and you can vary your table scenes to create a different experience at home from breakfast, lunch to teatime and dinner.
We spend a lot of money and time travelling or eating out, in the constant search for a new experience, that good feeling, a cozy vibe, an elegant style or a romantic feel. But a nice handmade ceramic cup or a piece of good tableware doesn’t even cost that much more than a meal at a cafe, and its “value” can be enjoyed over and over again.
So, don’t be afraid to invest in a few favourite pieces that make you happy. Unique tableware, combined with just a little extra effort will make an ordinary meal at home so much more special.
While you’re at it, spend some time editing, organising and decorating your space, design a little cafe corner and you’ll have a cool place to chill in right at home! So, what are you waiting for? Start enjoying a cafe-lifestyle at home and create moments to enjoy.
