Coffee is a sacred (and necessary) part of my morning routine. Although I love coffee shop lattes, I’ve found that with a few basic items, I can make a barista-worthy cup at home.

French Press Giveaway with Latte Cups and FrotherMaking my own coffee allow me to stay in my PJs a little longer, saves me hundreds of dollars in Starbucks spend, and is usually healthier too, since I am incapable of resisting those red-cupped, sugary holiday drinks.

In my years of coffee drinking, I’ve found three critical tools to creating an at-home cup of jo that gives me the feeling of a special coffee shop treat, and I’m teaming up with Bonjour Coffee to give all of them away on my blog today!

One: Use something besides a drip coffee maker. I’m all about this pretty French press. It creates a coffee with a smoother taste and is far less expensive (and easier to store) than an espresso machine. Plus, I feel fancy when I pour from it.

Two: Froth your milk! I use this rechargeable milk frother to whip my milk into a foamy frenzy, then zap it in the microwave before adding it to my coffee. It’s ready in seconds and makes my coffee taste luxurious.

Three: Sip from a cute cup. This is essential. I’m giving away this charming set, which shows off the lovely foam we just made.
