10 Coffee gadgets to perk you up every morning
How many cups of coffee do you drink a day? Whether it’s one or 21, coffee gives us the boost we need to start the day. But, there’s always room to make it better and technology is here to help.
- How much coffee do we drink? While four cups is the recommended limit, some people can handle much (much) more.
- What are the types of coffee? Arabica, robusta, and a blend of the two. Arabica is rich in flavor while robusta has more caffeine.
- Where can I find more coffee gadgets and accessories? Our coffee category is full of all the java accessories you could need.
As one of the oldest drinks in the world, there is little you can do to coffee to improve it. But we do. You could use something like special water or make sure your beans are fresh from Colombia. Even so, for many of us, as long as we get our morning cup of java, we’re good.
Now, that isn’t to say there isn’t room for improvement. Rather than shelling out on barista-made coffee, you can make some delicious coffee right at home or even on the go. In fact, technology has indeed made coffee better and more efficient. Here are 10 coffee gadgets to perk you up every morning (or whenever you get around to having a cup).
