One of my favorite rituals of the day is making a morning latte. Since I never seem to fit my coffee — with its mounds of steamed milk — into a mug, I was delighted a few years ago to discover latte bowls.
It started with drinking a ridiculously large sized latte every morning. The milk made my coffee spill over the edges of even an oversized mug. I noticed that the coffee shop I love down the street serves in latte bowls, and then I found some vintage white bowls at the Todd Farm Flea Market.
But then once I switched, I also noticed something else: I had to sit and drink it, rather than my usual frenetic running around getting ready for work with a mug in one hand and a phone or mascara in the other. And just the act of stopping to sit and drink, with both hands around the warm bowl started my day off more relaxed.
Vintage latte bowls are worth looking for at flea markets since the older, thick porcelain feels nicer than the newer ceramic versions, however you can also get new latte bowls like these I found at Anthropologie.
