Coffee Runs Through My Veins

Growing up, I never liked the taste of coffee. I always thought it was so strong and bitter tasting. It wasn’t until middle school that I discovered the wonderful world of lattes and mochas.

Now that I have an almost 2 year old doing laps around me, I find that coffee has become a necessite. Especially on those nights when I’m comforting a non-sleeping-waking-up-frequently-baby.

We never owned a legit coffee maker. I tried the french press, but found I always got coffee grinds in my cup. Maybe it was a technique thing? So I then splurged $3.99 on a simple single cup filter and used that for the past few months year. It worked for me, since I only needed one cup of coffee a day and not a whole pot. My birthday was rolling around and I knew exactly what I wanted, a Keurig type system with the coffee pods to make just one cup.

Did you know there are hundreds of different types of pod coffee systems? Starbucks came out with one, there’s the Keurig system, and a bunch of other brands. We researched and browsed reviews and event went to Williams & Sonoma for some taste tests.

The result? We purchased the Nespresso Lattissima Espresso machine.

Yum. Smooth, creamy and absolutely delicious coffee/latte/expresso. We loved it because of the one-touch milk frother and the ease of the single-servce capsules. And it only takes a few minutes and clean up is a breeze. Plus at only $0.60 a capsule, it is way cheaper than my grande latte at Starbucks.


Nespresso has no idea who I am, these are just my opinions.
