Imagine this, you're enjoying your favourite cup of coffee on your vacation, admiring a beautiful landscape or you are just appreciating how your coffee mug perfectly matches your well-arranged home-office setup in the background. It's hard to resist the urge to capture such moments…. It is my pleasure to invite you to our new photography competition – Coffee with a View!

Our previous coastal photography competition uncovered lots of passionate photographers within our community. Revisiting the thread, I am delighted to see those breathtaking perspectives from around the globe that were shared. For some, capturing memorable moments through photography is also an important part of travelling. My colleague @mynynachau just started an interesting discussion about traveler’s mindset, check it out!

Speaking of coffee, it holds an irreplaceable part in my life. It's no wonder that the “Coffee Corner“ group initially caught my eye when I joined the SAP Community. For me, drinking coffee embodies a ritual that signifies connection, engaging conversations, and cherished moments of “me-time”. I was thrilled to stumble upon the discussion thread about our favourite coffee.

Why Coffee with a View?

If you scroll through social media, you'll notice that “Coffee with a View” has been a popular trend for a while now. Search for the hashtag #coffeewithaview in any platform and you'll see what I mean. The view can be anything: somewhere in the nature, a nice café you visited, in front of your office building or a conference room, or even your very own “coffee corner” in the kitchen. Let's share those coffee views and tell each other about the stories behind them.

P.S.: Tea-lovers, we also accept your “tea with a view” pictures, it’s the story of the view that is important to us!

I have some pictures in my camera roll that I'd love to share with you for a start.

Coffee with a View of cherry blossom and people – bye bye Covid-winter!

This picture was taken on a beautiful spring day in Heidelberg, Germany. I was enjoying a relaxing Sunday by the riverside of Neckar, surrounded by cherry blossoms and a clear, blue sky. I treated myself to a flat white and a slice of strawberry cake. I wanted to capture this moment because it reminded me of the joy of being outdoors after a long winter of COVID-19 restrictions. I felt the warm spring breeze and heard people chatting and laughing. I was grateful and I was truly in the moment.

Coffee with a View of Hamburg city canal – my first paid vacation as a student

The picture is taken on my vacation to Hamburg Germany when I visited the historic “Speicherstadt” district in Hamburg. It was my very first paid vacation and back then I was a working student at SAP. I tried the local coffee with the signature canal view of Hamburg city, which has a special urban feeling. The water was shimmering under the sun and reflecting the surrounded buildings. It was a unique view!

I was in Sydney four months ago, theses pictures bring back the views instantly😍

Salted Caramel Macchiato.. One of my favorites! 😍 Have fun at the CodeJam!

But did they spell your name correctly?!! 😀

Definitely always a challenge @paulprestonhris  - I had so many different names with Starbucks, that I ended up with any fake name which is more easier 😉

A good coffee machine is always a big plus for offices!😻

Sun kissed mornings!

I always start my day with a mindfulness practice and drink coffee from a cute cup that makes me happy and ready for the day. This picture was taken on a day when I was about to head to Walldorf Office at SAP to attend training.

Happy Monday everyone!

I enjoyed my morning coffee at "All Cappuccino" with a view of Riga's Old Town street 

Text on the cup "Labākais vēl tikai būs" translates as "The best is yet to come"

I love this sentence, always remind me of never losing hopes and expectations for the future😊

That's a great name for a cafe @seVladimirs !!! Nice view. Hope the coffee tasted good as well!

Speaking of "the best is yet to come"  - ...is when I can participate SAP Inside Track in beautiful Riga once again someday. 😀 I was sad to miss this time, it looked so much fun though! My first and only time was a couple of years ago, and I'd recommend everyone to go if they can. I have great memories. 😊

Thank you again for the submission! It's a very nice picture and it showcases your creativity. However, for the competition we only allow pictures taken from actual locations. Since you also submitted those types of pics in your other reply, we'll consider these for the contest, but I'm afraid this AI-generated one isn't eligible.

When I travel to Dali and Beihai city in south area in china, I enjoy the coffee made from Yunnan coffee bean, the scenery there is really good, they have dreamy sea.IMG_0299.JPGIMG_9423.JPG95FDB1DB-ECBD-453A-86B4-7B4A5794CE81-755-0000007B7D047E64.JPG

LOL - it looks like that wasn't your coffee at all 😅😂
And BTW - do you sit in the boat? Looks really crazy with all the water around...

I receveid an angry look since I dranked all the coffee 🙃

It was not a boat, it was on a café called Café de Jaren, in Amsterdam. It has a lot of tables real close to the water on the canals.

Really cool to sit so close to the water 👍
