For many of us, ordering coffee in Australia is a non-negotiable part of our morning routine. But whilst we’re constantly trying to balance the morning traffic, fitting in an early workout and getting to work on time, we often end up grabbing whatever is nearest and most convenient. 

But why should you grab whatever cup of coffee is closest and throw it down your throat as fast as you can? Whatever your taste, different coffee drinks are there to be savoured and enjoyed. So here are our top three reasons to prioritise your morning coffee from now on!

It sets the tone for the day.

Why start the day with a mediocre coffee? 

This is probably the first thing you eat or drink in the day, so why wouldn’t you want to make it good? By just grabbing any old coffee or even an instant coffee, you’re actually sending a message to yourself that you are not worth it.

It may sound silly, but allowing yourself to have exactly the coffee you want, brewed exactly as you like it will help set the tone for the day. So whether you like the strongest coffee in Australia or like to try different coffee drinks every day, if you start the morning off happy and satisfied, it will help keep you positive and able to tackle whatever comes your way for the rest of the day.

Time to relax and reflect

Life can get pretty hectic, especially during the morning commute. You don’t have to sit cross-legged on a tranquil beach humming to yourself whilst meditating, but it’s important to prioritise yourself and give yourself room to breathe.

By allowing yourself just five minutes to enjoy your first coffee of the day (rather than drinking it whilst opening your e-mails at your desk), you are giving yourself some precious time to relax and reflect.

Nothing beats the first coffee, so why compromise?

Let’s face it, the first coffee of the day is by far the best one. We’re not sure why it just is. So, in all seriousness, why wouldn’t you want it to be great? When ordering coffee in Australia, going a few minutes out of your way to get your favourite coffee and taking another few minutes to sit back and really enjoy that coffee really isn’t that big a sacrifice in the grand scheme of things… but the pay-off is well worth it!

So from now on, don’t deprive yourself of the joy and inner-calm that a great cup of morning coffee can bring. Take some time out of your busy schedule and savour every sip!
