Grab yourself a hot coffee and go!

Coffee Hygge and the Art of Happiness

When it’s cold outside, the most comforting thing to do is to stay indoors and watch the rain or snowflakes fall. It’s time to grab your favourite blanket and prepare to get cozy with the coffee hygge lifestyle. The art of hygge is all about making the most of the season by enjoying the simple things – and few things are as simply satisfying as a fresh cup of coffee.

Brew a cup of your favourite coffee and immerse yourself in its delicious aroma, soothing heat and rich taste. You can enjoy your coffee hygge experience just like that, or add in other warm, comforting activities. Pick up a book you’ve been meaning to read, or put on a classic movie and settle in for a couple of hours of uninterrupted contentment in your hyggekrog (the coziest spot in your home)!

Find the Meaning of Hygge With Coffee and Friends

Relaxing with friends is a major part of Scandinavian culture and the hygge lifestyle. Hosting events doesn’t need to be stressful or complicated. It’s all about gathering the people you love under one roof in order to socialize and reconnect.

One of the best ways to make your guests feel welcome with the art of hygge is to offer them some treats. Sit them down and brew some coffee with the K‑Elite™ coffee maker. Its Strong Brew option and multiple cup sizes make it easy to brew the perfect coffee for each one of your guests. Not to mention the incredible number of delicious coffee varieties you can offer them! Serve comfort food, like yummy homemade pastries or Scandinavian rice pudding, to go with your fresh coffee. Food, coffee and friends: great on their own, amazing together!
