5 Secrets to Enjoying Coffee All Year Round

As summer gives way to autumn and Brits brace themselves for the colder weather, there’s nothing we coffee lovers enjoy more than a hot brew to see in the new season. Whether you’re an espresso connoisseur or an expert on the milky morning latte, coffee is something that can be enjoyed all year round - whatever the weather.

But when it comes to getting our daily caffeine fix, even our favourite blends can become bland if we don’t mix things up every now and again - that’s why, in today’s post, we’re spilling the beans when it comes to enjoying coffee 7 days a week, 365 days a year. From using Nespresso-compatible capsules at work to grinding your beans by hand at home, the world is your oyster when it comes to enjoying the nation’s favourite beverage everywhere you go - and with our help, you can find your brew of choice all year round.

1. Keep it portable

In the summer, you just can’t beat sitting outside with a delicious cup of your favourite blend in hand. When winter rolls in, this can become a distant memory. From chilly winds to icy snow, British weather often takes a turn for the worse in the festive months. But even though you can’t sit outside, this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the delectable taste of your favourite coffee flavours on the move.

Stay cosy during your daily commute with a proper thermal cup and you can ensure your coffee stays accessible even in the cold seasons. The trick when buying a thermal cup is not to skimp on price - a £1 cup may be cheaper, but you’ll sacrifice a lot when it comes to quality (and heat!) by choosing the cheaper option.

2. Mix up your blends

Whether you grind your coffee beans by hand or you prefer the convenience of our Nespresso-compatible capsules, keep your tastebuds tantalised by switching it up every once in a while. Treat your palate to another exquisite blend, such as the elegant, aromatic taste of our Piu Aroma capsules or the ever-changing deliciousness of our Cafe de Finca micro-lot. From fresh flavours to mouthwatering aromas, each blend offers something completely unique - so make sure you don’t miss out on your next favourite brew and try something new whenever you get the itch.

3. Try out a new brewing method

When it comes to coffee, there are a number of different ways you can indulge in your favourite drink - from grinding the beans yourself to using tasty Nespresso pods. If you’re stocked up on pods but yet to try making coffee from scratch, why not treat yourself and test your coffee-grinding skills? Alternatively, if you’re used to buying beans but often find you don’t have time to prepare them in the morning, now’s the time to try our convenient Nespresso-compatible capsules. Keep things exciting by mixing and matching your brewing methods and you’ll never find yourself without an occasion for coffee.

4. Embrace bolder flavours

On those dark winter mornings when most of us wake up for work, it can be difficult to summon the energy for the morning commute. It’s on these days that subtle flavours simply won’t cut it. Awaken your mind with the strong aromas and flavours found across our range. From the intense Especial Cafeterias beans to our caffeine-rich Intenso Nespresso pods, there’s a bold coffee blend for every sleepy winter morning.

5. Go cold

While cosy cups of hot coffee are non-negotiable when it comes to seeing us through the winter, when the sunny days return, the idea of an ice-cold drink will seem much more appealing. There are plenty of ways for you to create a cold, refreshing beverage using coffee - from an indulgent smoothie to a classic black coffee with ice. So, whether you’re hosting a backyard picnic or relaxing poolside, brew up your favourite blend and combine with a generous scoop of ice cream or pour it ‘on the rocks’ for a thirst-quenching coffee concoction to take you through the summer season.

No matter the time of year, coffee reigns supreme as the nation’s drink of choice. Whether you’re trying out a new blend or brewing up bold flavours, enjoy your coffee year-round with our secrets for all seasons.
