Because Shavuot commemorates that giving of the commandments (and by extension the Torah) to Moses and the Jewish people, one of the customs on Shavuot is to study Torah all night (or at least later than usual). Personally, I can barely stay up past 10pm unless I’ve had a coffee. And since Torah is best studied with others, invite some friends over and make a special effort with the coffee. Fru fru coffee drinks are generally easy and make a big impact. Here are some recipes for sprucing up the typical cup of coffee for a crowd:
