Parenthood is a journey like no other, filled with joy, love, and countless precious moments. Yet, it also comes with its fair share of sleepless nights, endless diaper changes, and a seemingly never-ending to-do list. Amidst the beautiful chaos of raising a newborn, there’s one trusty ally that stands out as a lifeline for new parents: coffee. More than just a beverage, coffee becomes a sacred ritual, a source of comfort, and a necessary fuel to power through the challenges of early parenthood.
Depending upon your needs, coffee-making expertise, and just the plain old TIME factor, we’ve put together a list of different coffees to help YOU, the first-time parent cope with your day. From start to finish, you’ll realize that for YOU mom and dad…COFFEE is the one thing that you need that didn’t make the baby registry.
For those who can’t deal with anything harder than boiling water.

What we love about Steeped Coffee is their focus on every detail from farm-to-cup and beyond, to bring people the most convenient, high quality, ethically sourced, and sustainably packaged products available, without any work on your part. As the new standard for single-serve coffee that combines both convenience and quality all within Guilt-Free Packaging, Steeped lets you make a great cup off coffee with no measuring, coffee pots (or even having to wash a coffee pot or coffee maker afterward).

Steeped Coffee is the simplest way to make a perfect cup of coffee by just adding water, with no machine needed.

Did we happen to mention that Ben’s mom is a total coffee nerd? Yup, she was a district manager and trainer for a BIG COFFEE COMPANY and she treats her coffee tastings like a wine tasting. It’s almost funny to watch, but after doing coffee pressings and tastings at big fancy $200-a-plate dinners, we trust her palate and she went CRAZY when she saw that The Drip Collective offered Bali Blue. Indonesians are her favorites with a deep earthy flavor that lingers on the tongue (just like a great pinot noir).

FYI, we have given up our electric K-Cups and Nespresso and have got back to good old-fashioned pour-over coffee in a traditional glass carafe for a cleaner flavor. Just note that this takes more time than any other of the electric (or steeped) methods.
Here’s to a day with your eyes open and fun with the little ones.
