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 am already very curious about your views and stories. Join me and share your pictures & stories with the community!

Better late than never - coffee with a view:
The cup is a gift from a co-worker. Not only that, Cocoa Beach was the setting of one of my favorite TV shows as a kid, "I Dream of Jeannie".
What also makes this special is last year at this time, due to an injury, I couldn't hold a cup.
It's truly wonderful to view the incredible photos shared daily from around the world. I kindly invite everyone to take a moment to browse through and show your support by giving kudos to your favorite ones! Stay tuned as we will soon be announcing the final winner! ☕
You bet. Sometimes your backyard is the best place for a cup of coffee: https://groups.community.sap.com/t5/coffee-corner-discussions/coffee-with-a-view-photography-competi... ☕️
