I LOVE coffee. I don’t drink it all day every day, usually just a cup in the morning….maybe one in the evening every now and again. Luckily, it doesn’t bother me and it also doesn’t bother Emma nursing so that’s a great thing. I actually will nurse Emma first and then drink my coffee so she isn’t getting a full hit of caffeine and she is going 4 hours between feeding so that helps! I’m less into it for the caffeine and more into the taste of a “perfect” cup of coffee. I pretty much swoon every time I see this commercial…
My brother bought me the top of the line Keurig years ago and it’s been on it’s “last legs” for a while now. Sometimes it will just flat out refuse to work and we have to sweet talk it to get it working again. We have pretty much always used the k-cups and got the big boxes at Costco but recently we were using the re-fill cup and putting our own coffee in it which is SO much cheaper than k-cups.
Even though I would have a cup of coffee at home, when I was out I would still crave my frothy cappuccino with that delicious espresso. Then I felt like it got to the point that I didn’t even want a cup of coffee at home, I just wanted my “proper coffee” while I was out which will bankrupt you real fast at $4 a cup.
Then I came across Nespresso and not being familiar with the brand I had no idea what I was missing out on. It is an espresso machine, not a coffee machine. It has similar little “cups” unique to the machine but you get a shot of espresso not a cup of coffee. I have been using the milk frother I already had and voila….I am in Nespresso heaven. I have been making my coffee at home and seriously loving this espresso machine! The machines start at $129 and go up from there, I have the manual Essenza machine and really love it. I also really like that it is half the size of the Keurig so it takes up a lot less space and it is less bulky on my counter. The other thing I like is that I can order the cups the cheapest directly from the Nespresso app on my ipad and pick and choose some favorites for a nice mix so I’m not tied into getting a big box of the same type at Costco.
Any other coffee lovers out there?! What’s your favorite drink??
