7 Ways to Update Your Cup of Coffee ...

By Kelly

Don’t get me wrong, I love my coffee, but sometimes it is important to look for a way to update your cup of coffee. The same thing, every morning, over and over again, can get a bit boring. So I have compiled some ways to update your cup of coffee and add a new spark to your joe each morning.

1 Cinnamon

Cinnamon Sprinkling a pinch of cinnamon in your coffee is the easiest way to update your cup of coffee. It adds a sweet bitterness to your java that can be a subtle update. Cinnamon is the perfect addition if you want to spice things up but you’re not ready for a huge change. It is the gateway spice to a whole new world of coffee.

2 Baileys Irish Cream

Baileys Irish Cream Why not add a little kick to your morning brew? I am not saying to get drunk on your commute to work, but nothing can help you get that jumpstart like some Baileys. Add in a tiny teaspoon and you have a delicious cup of Irish coffee that will help you make it through the day.

3 Peppermint

Peppermint Some people reserve peppermint flavored coffee for those cold winter days, but why keep yourself from enjoying this delicious treat all year round? You can splash in a few drops of peppermint syrup for a bold taste, although you should be warned that this taste might get some getting used to. If peppermint syrup is too bold for you, try mixing your coffee with a peppermint stick for a subtle taste.

4 Salt

Salt If you are not a huge fan of the bitterness of coffee, salt is a great way to update your cup of coffee. If you have ever had a salted caramel mocha from Starbucks, you can attest to the difference a pinch of salt can have in your coffee.

5 Ice Cream

Ice Cream If you really want a cool new way to enjoy your coffee, why not add a scoop of your favorite ice cream? It will cool your coffee and add in a whole new variety of flavors. There are so many ice cream options to try, so play around with them until you find the one you fall in love with.

6 Cheesecake

Cheesecake Okay so this might sound really weird, but it’s a great way to update your coffee. Take a piece of cheesecake, mash it up, and add it to your cup of coffee. It will add a sweet, salty, and delicious new flavor to your brew. And it is a unique way to add some creaminess to the coffee.

7 Switch up Your Beans

Switch up Your Beans When people are looking to update their coffee, they often look past the most obvious way to switch things up: trying a new type of coffee. Coffee can taste different for a variety of reasons, ranging from the location of the coffee bean to the way it is brewed. They can be bolder or sweeter and everything in between. If you don’t like the coffee you are drinking now, play around with different blends until you find something new that you like better.

Nothing could ever replace coffee in my morning routine, but I love these ways to update your cup of coffee. They are small ways to add a new kick to your brew but still keep the coffee you know and love. What did you think of these ways to update your cup of coffee? Do you know any new ways to spice up your coffee? Do you prefer to keep the same type of coffee or do you like to play around with it?
