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!

A welcome cup of tea, outside my house, after work - before the sun goes in completely. In Ireland, you grasp the sunshine while you can 😊. Reminds me... I need to water my flowers later, before they melt in the heat!

Great photo! Are you hooked on the coffee now 😀 @NJ2020

Hi, Katherine! I'd love to be, but it has proven to be a challenge to replicate it at home, despite exhaustive efforts. You just can't beat an aged clay pot and true Mexican tradition of roasting it over open fire with some cinnamon. I will definitely go back for it one day!

The hand-made pot adds a nice earthy feeling to the coffee 😋

It's summer, the season of lakes, and I wouldn't miss any opportunity to capture a new "coffee with a view" picture. I headed to Heppensheimer Lake to enjoy my Sunday, waiting until closing time so other swimmers wouldn't block my view. 😂

Here's an extra "behind the scenes" picture of me capturing the moment. My friend couldn't resist taking this shot, while others wondered why I needed a picture of myself taking a picture...  How many takes did it take for you to capture your view? I needed 3 😃 The other two "candidates" are also uploaded below.

Hello everyone,

I am mainly a tea drinker. So I will share probably my best view while I was drinking a tea.
The night view on the downtown San Francisco! It was taken on a great vacation in USA about a day before our flight back to home (Europe).

Tea in SFTea in SFCoffee with a face :-DCoffee with a face 😄

But I will also share a photo of a coffee. Of a coffee with my face 😆 
It was printed with a special printer, something like a 3D printer but using coffee/cocoa powder.

What a view! Seems like you picked a hotel with the best location there😍

Where is the second picture taken? also in San Francisco? 

Hi Anaer, believe it or not, it was actually just a cheap hostel 🙂
And second photo was taken back home, in front of the offices in Prague.

So cool! Need to try out the 3D printer for coffee art too. Thanks for sharing.

Two great photos @Tomas_Buryanek !! The first one really makes me want to travel, right now!
I prefer tea as well - either tea and milk or a herbal tea. My current one is liquorice and peppermint.
What's your favourite?!

Thank you Katherine! My favourite tea is simple green one 🙂 Great start a day with one in morning.

Seeing a pic of the SF by night made me nostalgic 🫠

Kudos for the barista work and because it is 🇨🇿

So cool! 🌟

Coffewithviewbalu.jpgI think my Dog also loves the smell of a nice coffee, especially while hanging out on the beach in the Netherlands. 

Aww what a lovely dog - beautiful colourings - sort of frothy coffee colours.

Cold brew and iced Latte are my summer must-haves....

Where is the second picture taken?😍

Great idea and fun to have a #coffeewithaview. My espresso machine is unfortunately only a building block kit 😃 but enjoy your cup and have a great time.

Love it, it has a cool retro vibe. It must be so fun to build it.  Do you have a "real" espresso machine too?😊

Inspired by the submission by @LauraPD ,  took my friend's cat Paula as my coffee view yesterday. It seems Paula wasn't too impressed by the aroma of my coffee. 😬  Anyone else has a lovely pet to share as their view?

Coffee in Clouds 

Place: Hoher Kasten (1794 m), Appenzell, Switzerland

An amazing hiking path leads from Brulisau to the tip of the Mountain top called Hoher Kasten located in the Appenzell canton of Switzerland. I enjoyed the dynamic weather filled with beauty of Alps and the valley beneath. The lake known as Sämtisersee enhances the scenic attractiveness of the place. Self made Coffee tastes better while watching the clouds dance and being surrounded by the stunning Alps on the mountaintop. 20230702_153146.jpg

Breathtaking view for a

I love this @raghavendrahegd !! And agree @Vitaliy-R - it's totally breathtaking. 
I want to go for a hike now.

A cup of warm coffee on the mountain top must be so rewarding after a long existing hike. The view at the peak is just stunning! Thanks for sharing it with us @raghavendrahegd!

Such a nice scenery, @raghavendrahegd! To me, mountains always symbolize freedom and calmness, already by just looking at this picture! 🤗
