The Long Distance Valentine's Day Coffee Date

If you're in a long distance relationship and you're sad to miss the opportunity for a celebratory Valentine's Day date...don't be! We have a solution. While not being able to see your s/o on the daily sucks, we have an idea of a way to at least mediate some of those long-distance blues. A coffee date! While it may seem simple, or even mundane, sometimes an activity as routine as sharing a coffee ritual together can feel pretty romantic when you haven't been in the same place or home for awhile.

What says love more than a shared cup of coffee? 

While the last couple of years have been a rollercoaster, with the state of the world in constant chaos, we have become pretty proficient at spending time virtually given the circumstances. So why not take advantage of our newfound expertise, and start up a Zoom, FaceTime, and/or Netflix Party with a s/o or special friend? 

STEP #1: ORDER AN EXPLORER BUNDLE

Make sure you have all the equipment necessary to prep for your virtual coffee date! We recommend ordering one of our many convenient, and super fun barista-level bundles to make sure your coffee date is a breeze to create. 😜

STEP #2: SET UP THE ZOOM OR FACETIME

Easy! Log in or create a Zoom account...or to simplify it: go ahead and set up a time to FaceTime. We recommend using a computer or propping your phone up against something, so you can have both hands free to sip your coffee in style.

STEP #3: MAKE YOUR CUP OF COFFEE 

This is the most important step so far. If you're looking for pure convenience, we recommend making a classic cold brew iced coffee, but if you want to spice it up without much effort, add a dash of our Vanilla or Sea Salt Caramel elixir. Better yet, what are you and your partner in the mood for? What time of day is it? Do you want to virtual cheers with a cold brew martini? Or is it your mid-day lunch break and you want something more indulgent? We'd recommend our vanilla iced latte.

STEP #4: CHOOSE A COZY, QUIET PLACE TO SIT & CHAT

Prop your phone up and get comfy! Find a cozy nook to sip your coffee in peace with your s/o. We recommend that delicious worn-in spot on the couch everyone fights over...but it's up to you! 

STEP #5: TIME TO SIP, RELAX & ENJOY

Happy V-day, Explorers 💕
