There’s no better way to say I love you to a coffee lover than to serve them coffee in bed on a chilly February morning. Besides, there’s something special about making someone a cup of coffee, especially when you’re serving the coffee to them in bed.

You can add eggs, bacon, and the works to the tray as well, to go with the coffee. If you want to go a step further, don’t just give your partner a regular cup of Joe; instead, make one of the specialty coffees below. Make enough for two, climb into bed with your partner, and share breakfast and a specialty coffee.

2. Take a Class Together

Any expert will suggest taking a class together if you want to do something romantic. However, if you love a coffee lover, you can always present them with the gift of taking a coffee class together. Because, after all, there’s always something to learn about coffee, and it is pretty fascinating.

Some topics you might learn in a coffee class include latte art, home roasting, and even new brewing methods, to name a few. Many local coffee shops offer short courses, or if you have a favorite barista, ask them to come to your home and give the two of you a class or two. This will surprise your partner for sure and certainly be a romantic gesture.

3. Coffee and Chocolate Flavored Dinner

Who doesn’t love coffee and chocolate? While dinner and a movie may be what everyone is doing, creating a coffee and chocolate-flavored dinner together isn’t. Some ideas include coffee and pork loin, a coffee glaze made of Chile, brown sugar, and black pepper, and a creamy tiramisu to top things off for the perfect evening.

For many, the perfect date begins with coffee and ends with chocolate, so providing them both should surely be a roaring success.

4. Coffee Shop Date

If you’re looking for something a little less over the top and a way to get out of the house, how about a date at a coffee shop? The ambiance in a specialty coffee shop is the perfect place for gazing into your partner’s eyes and having a meaningful conversation. Add the fact that there’s plenty of coffee available, and you have a winner. Make the date extra special by turning off your phone so that you won’t be disturbed.
