Coffee: 5 Ways to Mix Up Your Morning Cup

Coffee drinking is a global phenomenon; for many, a cup of coffee is the perfect way to begin the day. While drinking your favorite cup might not seem like a complicated routine, there are plenty of ways to mix things up regarding your morning cuppa.

Whether you have a high-end espresso maker in your kitchen or use an automatic drip machine, there are plenty of ways to shake things up when drinking coffee without having to consult a coffee roasting guide. Consider these ideas for mixing up your morning routine and becoming the ultimate coffee aficionado.


1. Add Flavor With Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has been called the “holy grail” of cooking oils by many foodies, and for good reason; it’s a healthy fat that is rich in antioxidants. While coconut oil can be used in many recipes, it’s also great for adding flavor to your morning cup of coffee. Coconut oil adds sweetness and a unique taste to your coffee without adding calories or saturated fats.

To add coconut oil to your morning coffee routine, add some oil to your cup of coffee and mix well in a blender (with lid held tight since steam will push it off), or mix carefully with a handheld mixer. Within minutes you’ll have the perfect cup of java with coconut oil's added flavor and health benefits.


2. Add A Dash Of Cinnamon

There's nothing better than a hot cup of coffee in the morning. However, there are plenty of ways to make it more interesting. Even if you don't add any other ingredients, adding a dash of cinnamon will give your morning cup an extra kick.

Cinnamon is known for its warming properties, and the flavor is great for adding depth of flavor to coffee without adding calories or sugar. An easy way to add cinnamon to coffee is to mix it with cream and then add it to your cup of coffee. You can also use freshly ground cinnamon for a stronger flavor.


3. Call In The Collagen

Did you know that coffee is a great beverage in which to add collagen to your routine? Adding some collagen powder to your hot coffee provides a creaminess as well as some extra nutrition, 18 amino acids, to your morning cup.

While most of us have heard of collagen and its benefits, many may be unaware that collagen is often added to various foods and drinks. As a protein that plays a vital role in our skin and bones, collagen also helps to keep our hair, teeth and nails healthy and strong. So next time you reach for your favorite latte or espresso, consider adding some extra collagen into your morning routine.


4. Butter It Up

While coffee is often enjoyed with a dash of cream, butter can also add a unique flavor to your morning cup compared to the typical coffee. Butter may need to be mixed into coffee with a blender for the smoothest mixture. Butter contains more fat than cream and to some people also is sweeter and richer in taste. Replacing cream and sugar in your coffee with a bit of butter is a good idea if you’re following a Keto friendly diet.


5. Add Some Chocolate

Adding chocolate to your coffee can make all the difference. While you might be tempted to add as much chocolate as you desire, it’s best to stick with a small amount. This is because too much chocolate can mask the flavor of the coffee, resulting in a bitter and unpleasant-tasting cup.

Instead of pouring a large amount of melted chocolate into your cup, try adding just a spoonful or two or drizzle a bit on top of your coffee before drinking. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, consider adding whipped cream or even sprinkling cinnamon on top.


6. Make Cafe Au Oats

Cafe au lait is a French term for “coffee with milk.” It is a mixture of hot coffee and hot milk, most often served in a tall glass with sugar and whipped cream. The combination of the two ingredients creates an incredibly creamy, rich drink.

For a fun breakfast treat, spice things up a bit with a teaspoon of instant espresso powder with oats, almonds, cinnamon, milk and more with this recipe. Let it sit overnight in the fridge and then enjoy it cold or heated in the morning.


In conclusion, coffee is a complex beverage made from the roasted seeds of the coffee bean. To make a good cup of coffee, it is best to understand a variety of ways to make your coffee taste delicious. The key to a great cup of coffee is making sure you not only have the right beans but also use the right enhancers to make your morning cup of coffee more exciting and enjoyable.
