I bought my first Nespresso 6 years ago with my husband, a self-confessed coffee-addict, I LOVE good coffee, so much so that I actually drink it black with no sugar now (the first coffee I ever drank was from Starbucks in London – a cappuccino, while I was writing a final essay and I put 3 packets of sugar in it… YUCK! I don’t know how I drank it!) espresso is a favourite of mine at home and our trusty Nespresso Essenza (first model they brought out) broke recently! So we rushed out when we found that this one was $80 off from The Bay to purchase a new one!
I have a love of red, especially my kitchen appliances so the fact that this machine was the last one left in the store and it was also red, was perfect! It’s also very slim, slimmer than our original machine which, in a small Apartment kitchen that is already bursting at the seams with kitchen gadgets, is just what we needed.
Nespresso work in conjunction with the Rainforest Alliance to bring you the highest quality Grand Cru Coffees through sustainable and ethical sourcing. Even better, their aluminium pods are completely recyclable and can be taken back to any Nespresso boutique to be recycled.
The pressure of up to 19 bars with which the water is forced through the coffee is what produces that thick crema on top of the espresso and creates the perfect flavour and quality. The perfect way to wake up in the morning, and ready in under 2 minutes.
Perfect for those upcoming Fall coffee drinks I’ll be making… hello Pumpkin Spice Latte and Salted Caramel Mocha (stay tuned for those recipes!)
