Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably at least heard of TikTok, the latest social media platform that has taken the world by storm. Like the once-popular app Vine, TikTok is used to create quick, intriguing video content lasting no longer than one minute. Video uploads cover various topics, including cooking, workout tips, short-form comedy routines, and more.
Education is one of the more popular genres on the app. Followers can get career advice, watch how-to guides, and obtain insight into various industries. Like the creators of many bingeworthy cooking and recipe-based accounts, coffee connoisseurs are acquiring a steady fan base as they showcase tricks of the trade, essential coffee recipes, and coffee accessories every kitchen should be equipped with.
To help you get the most of your TikTok experience, here are our top 10 favorite coffee accounts to follow.
