The At – Home Coffee Experience!

There is one thing that I have learned throughout my college years. Coffee will always be a friend, no matter whether it is dark, blonde, or decaf. I remember my first Americano like it was yesterday, I was in Paris with my aunt and uncle on vacation. We went to the small café around the corner from our apartment, to have a mid-morning brunch. I had never really had coffee before. Now I look back on that and I am still in shock, how did I go 19 years without coffee. I just was not a major fan, that is until this Americano hit my taste buds and transferred me to another dimension.

The dark roast espresso, with a splash of whole milk and a tad bit of vanilla. There was nothing like the taste! Ever since then, coffee has been my go-to morning beverage. Of course, in college, it was easy to get coffee, because on every street corner in Seattle there is a coffee shop, with all of your coffee needs available. But once I graduated, I realized I no longer had the options I needed. (That and the fact that my wallet needed saving). Therefore, I bit the bullet, and ordered a Nespresso coffee machine, as a graduation present for myself of course!

This machine has changed my coffee game. I got the Lattissima Touch in gray. It has a touchpad feature that enables you to make the perfect latte, macchiato, cappuccino, americano, and then your drip coffee. The nice thing is that with all those features you can change the settings so that the coffee is made to your liking. Aka, the water temp, level of milk, level of coffee, etc. Of course, for what you are paying for the machine is a great price originally it is $499, granted I got it on sale last year for $350. Along with the price you get a 1-year warranty, so if your machine breaks or stops working properly you can just send it to the Nespresso support team, and they will fix it for you.

Now, let's take a minute to talk about the variety of coffee you can get from Nespresso. My go-to flavors are Vanilla Eclair and Napoli, I’m a sucker for a good Vanilla latte. The pods range anywhere from 0.50 – 0.95 cents each so about $5 - 10 dollars for a sleeve of 10 coffee pods. Though what is nice, is that now more companies are coming out with coffee pods that you can use with your Nespresso machine even if it's not Nespresso coffee. For instinct, Starbucks came out with a line of different coffee blends in pods just for that very reason, variety!!!

Coffee is such an expressive drink, it's wonderful that there are so many different flavors and ways one can indulge. Until we meet again! Let’s keep the conversation going, what’s your favorite coffee beverage iced or hot?
