While I'm not a heavy coffee drinker, Mom is a real fan who needs her caffeine everyday. She has been eyeing the pretty Nespresso machines for quite some time already, but always felt heart pinched by the price. So when Dad found out on his recent UK trip that it was about 30% to 40% cheaper (Corrected by Mom, its 50% to 60% off!) there, it became too good a deal to resist bringing one back!
Working on pressure theory, the coffee machine uses only coffee powder of its own brand. Sealed in colourful little capsules, there are plenty of flavours to choose from, ranging from low to high intensity, decaffeinated or not. Too pretty to use!
Price of each capsule ranged from about 80cents to just over a dollar. Over the long run, I don't think its really expensive considering that your kopitiam coffee costs 10 cents cheaper but way more affordable than Starbucks!
And its really easy to operate! Pop the capsule in, press a button and voila! Used capsules are conveniently caught in a "dustbin" too. Noticed the tiny holes? Shows that the coffee powder within had been expended already!
This little buddy is a perfect partner to the machine, making warm milk froth instantly. Latte, Cuppuccino, anyone?
Why not match it with vibrant containers and pretty cups? Set for a perfect afternoon tea!
My first cup of Latte
But just when I'm excited to try more creations, I was rudely reminded by the dreadful word: Exams. Yes, I'm cooping myself up in school from now until the last paper on December 17th. Darn.
Anybody wanna join me for a cuppa after exams?
