I had been slurping up the cappuccinos lately thanks to our brand new Nespresso machine. This wasn’t a blog review freebie, and this post isn’t sponsored by Nespresso in any way. Just wanted to share how crazy I am about this new machine!
I first had a Nespresso at my friend Tricia’s house, and she made me a restaurant-quality cuppa in about 2 minutes. I was blown away. Plus the machine is just gorgeous!
The Nespresso espresso and coffee itself is so good too. My machine makes both, which I LOVE! Sometimes you want a tiny kick and other times you want a big mug of coffee. Both are frothy and full bodied. I’ve been a decaf drinker for a few years now and am back on regular coffee because these flavors are just so good. I’m not getting jittery either, so that’s a good sign that these aren’t insanely high in caffeine like Starbucks. I love that the pods are not made of plastic and you can recycle them, and Nespresso will even send you a free bag in which to return them. So far the blue and gold pods are my favorite flavors! The only one I don’t like is Hazelnut because I’m not crazy about flavored coffee, but the vanilla one is nice.
I ended up getting the machine plus frother as a bundle from Williams-Sonoma. I really wanted the one with the rounded top, and had a coupon at WS to get a little discount. It wasn’t cheap, but I totally think it was worth the cost. You can find the bundle on Amazon a bit cheaper than WS too.
The milk frother alone is worth the investment for putting on top of your French press or hot tea. It’s called the Aeroccino Plus. All you do is pour in the milk of your choice and push a button and you have perfect hot milk and froth in about a minute. You can swap out these two little magnetic spinners to either just do hot milk or hot milk plus froth. I make hot chocolate for Mazen so quickly in this thing! It’s really easy to clean too since the magnetic parts come out.
Breakfast today was a strawberry – banana – peanut butter smoothie. Plus a cappuccino! That cloud of foam!!
How do you drink your coffee?
