It’s National Coffee Day, and it’s a big day! We’re celebrating by sharing some of our favourite things for improving our at-home coffee routine, because there’s no reason to pay for a cup of coffee every day when you can brew quite good coffee at home.
These goods don’t necessarily apply to everyone because coffee is so subjective—some people love a frothy latte, some prefer a simple black coffee, and still others are year-round cold brew fanatics.

It turns off when the milk reaches the ideal temperature, and it works with all of my favourite alternative milks.
