Celebrating International Coffee Day

The morning commute, or a cosy catch up with friends would usually, never be without a coffee, but as a new normal has taken over, venturing out to enjoy life’s little moments feels like a lifetime ago.

The “new normal” has meant working from home for many, and our old, familiar routines have been left in the balance. Now, there are many things we miss about our old ways of living, but could a cup of our favourite coffee be the one thing we are missing the most?  

To find out how many of us were missing a “proper” cup of coffee, here at GiftsOnline4U we surveyed 1,000 UK adults to see how many of us purchased a coffee machine since this March. 

And the results are in: We are a nation of coffee lovers! The survey found that since lockdown measures were implemented in March, over 3 million of us have purchased coffee machines to bring that “proper” cup of coffee home with us!
