Here's a roundup of delicious Valentine latte ideas to make a romantic drink (or 2!) for your coffee lover. While Valentine's Day is the perfect special occasion excuse, we have easy recipe ideas that work year-round!

What Is Valentine’s Day?

Celebrated on February 14 of every year, Valentine’s Day is the day that lovers express their affection for each other with gifts, cards, and acts of service.

There are many legends and tales suggesting the origin of St. Valentine’s Day, but our favorite is the story in which St. Valentine defied Emporer Claudius II Gothicus and secretly married couples. This kept the husbands out of war and of course, furthered love throughout the land.

St. Valentine was martyred and now is celebrated annually on February 14th.

Valentine’s Day Coffee Recipes

From a red velvet latte to a white chocolate mocha, you can’t go wrong with a cupid cappuccino on the morning of February 14th.

A caffeinated cup of coffee is a great way to say I love you – just add cocoa powder and whipped cream where you need to from the comfort of your own home.

Get fancy with some latte art if you are up to it and have a good espresso maker.

We’ve even included a few coffee-related desserts if that’s more your loved one’s speed.
