Sorry, breakfast enthusiasts: For many of us, coffee is actually the most important moment of the day. It’s rich. If made well, it’s a delicate balance of bold and sweet. More importantly, it can be the comforting, peaceful start that one needs to get through the following 16-plus hours. No matter where your coffee preferences lie—whether you love a nice cappuccino, opt for a creamy cup of espresso, or are satisfied with a quick cup of Americano from your favorite fast food spot—coffee culture has an interesting way of straddling the line between luxury and accessible everyday pleasures.
