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!

"Where Coffee Meets the Sky: A Brew Above Dubai's Clouds"

Immersed in the most delightful coffee experience of my life, I savored the view from the 72nd floor, Dubai's vibrant tapestry unfurling before me. With a mug in hand, my summer vacation became a symphony of flavors and breathtaking sights.

#Coffeewithaview from Barcelona Office! 

I am beyond excited to be back in the office, ready to rock and roll after what feels like forever in the virtual realm. It's time to trade those pajamas for business casual, reunite with the office coffee machine, and rediscover the joy of spontaneous conversations in the coffee corner. I've missed the laughter, camaraderie, and energy of my colleagues in our workspace. Let's embrace this moment to reconnect, collaborate, and make some incredible memories together. Welcome back, folks, let's make the office buzz with our awesomeness!

It's really exciting to be back in the office and especially when it's beautifully decorated like this. Did you manage to keep the mug as a souvenir? 🙂

Late to the party but here is my contribution: Coffee with a view in Europapark at the KaffiHuis and the BlueFire roller coaster in the background:

And before you ask: Yes, I did enjoy this ride on previous visits just not this time (yet) as the queue was too long with about 50 minutes to wait. I did however already enjoy SilverStar this morning which lets you experience ZeroG a few times if you dare to not hold tight!

Cheers

Love the pic - better late than never! And "no thanks" to the rollercoaster 😊 you are a braver person than me!!

Same as @Katherine_K , "no thanks" to the rollercoaster, I have never been on one.😁 But it's an existing view (I am sure you heard people screaming at the same time)!

Former Member

Yes, Anaer, there was „some“ but joyful screaming! Should perhaps have done a video instead of a photo!

Just a quick update: This morning, the queue wasn‘t too long, so I did ride BlueFire and here is the official image to prove that I did and was having fun!

I do not see any cup of coffee in your hands in this photo, Bärbel 😜

😅😁😄

Too funny, Vitaliy! Holding a cup of coffee through a looping and 2 or 3 corkscrews would be just a wee bit tricky - esp. without spilling anything!

But then it would be the top first-place photo 🥇 no questions asked!

I would love to see that photo @Former Member  @Vitaliy-R  - LOL 😂

100% agree 😁

due to centrifugal forces the coffee should rest in the cup in the same way that you are resting in the seat. Maybe some fine tuning would be needed when accelerating or braking. Should be worth a try 😉

Perhaps we need to ask Europapark to either add a coffe-cup holder to the seats or relax their safety rules "somewhat"? 😀

BaerbelW_0-1688992635872.png

With the Silver Star ride, they actually have a display mounted along the waiting area showcasing severely damaged mobile phones which their owners presumably hadn't properly secured and which then took a different flight path ...

Was thinking the same @markteichmann  - too bad, that they don't allow it @Former Member 😅

I guess you don't need coffee anymore after this existing rollercoaster drive 😂

It's really amazing 🙂

My #coffeewithaview in Wiesbaden downtown, taking a moment to pause and enjoying an iced caramel macchiato. Although surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the city, I always get to take a little break from the daily grind and just switch off for a moment.

I always drink tea more often on winter days!😊 

The sight of a clear blue sky during the winter is a rare treat in Germany!💌

Indeed it's a rare one 😛
