Valentine’s Day is looming, and it just so happens to fall on a Sunday this year. So, we know what you’re thinking… “I should do breakfast in bed!”
We agree! To help, we put together a few tips and tricks to make the whole experience a little more delicious.
Let’s start with the obvious: You’re going to be brewing some fantastic coffee. For a better brew for two we’d recommend using the V60 Drip Decanter – our guide to getting the best out of the V60 is here – and what better way to serve it to your loved one than in our Figgjo cup set?
But breakfast is more than just coffee, as much as it pains us to admit this… If you prefer some tea then grab some beautiful Hario tea-ware from our friends at Brewed By Hand (who kindly shared a 10% discount code for you to use: BREWFORTWO). Combine that with some stunning tea from Postcard Teas, Lalani or Waterloo Tea.
For breakfast in bed you don’t want anything too fussy, but perfectly cooked eggs on stunning sour dough toast is guaranteed to make most people pretty happy. Grab a fresh loaf from your local bakery – great bread is increasingly easy to get hold of, but please forgive our bias towards stunning bread wizards like Pavilion Bakery, Brick House or Flint Owl.
As for eggs: our friends over at ChefSteps have the most amazing egg calculator, so if you can cook sous vide then you can serve them exactly as your loved one likes them. (If you don’t have a circulator then you should absolutely get one, but if not then this is the most comprehensive guide to foolproof poached eggs we’ve found).
Not in the mood to cook? We’ve got two options:
Check out our map of cafes, and chances are there’s somewhere nearby that will serve you a delicious brunch and a well brewed coffee.
If that doesn’t work: Chocolate. Visit our friends over at Cocoa Runners to grab some incredible bean to bar chocolate that will make anyone happy (you should probably do this anyway!). If you’re looking for a starting point here’s a selection of great bars, with a discount to boot. Use code JH10 at the checkout for a discount on anything and everything on their site.
Hopefully we’re doing what we always aim to do: start your day off a little better! Have a delightful Valentine’s Day!
