Do do do doo, do do do doo, coffee time (to the tune of MC Hammer…..)
Chris has wanted a Nespresso machine for years, since my mum and dad got one and he realised how much he enjoyed the coffee. He was very lucky this Christmas and Santa finally treated him to one as I think caffeine will play a big role in both our lives this year!
He’s had a lot of fun tasting all the different capsules and will welcome any recommendations anyone might have? His favourite at the moment is Fortissio Lungo.
I’ve even had a cup of the Christmas special Ginger and Chocolate in our new Cath Kidston mug which is the first caffinated coffee I’ve had since being pregnant. I’m trying to slowly reintroduce it when I occasionally feel in the mood for coffee. I’ve also had a few teething problems with the machine and managed to crush a few capsules….
Ooops…who knew that you could mess up such an easy system?! But I think I’ve got the hang of it now! We have the most basic machine as all we want is coffee, no frothy milk, and this machine was nice and small compared to some of it’s siblings. Mum taught us that we can make lattes by heating milk in the microwave if we fancy a change so it’s nice and easy to keep clean and does make very good strong coffee compared to the Keurig and filter machines we’ve tried in the past. I have a feeling it’s going to get a lot of use in the next few months!
