Coffee plays a huge part in the start to my day.
I love it; the taste, the smell, the boost of energy it gives me to sort the lunches and get breakfast going. Without my morning fix I feel a bit sluggish. I don’t drink great quantities and I certainly don’t rely on it to get me through the day but it is my favourite part of my morning routine.
Until recently my coffee game was weak. Hello instant gold roast. I started to realise how much I preferred a real coffee, a coffee with depth and lots of flavour.
Nipping out the the local coffee shop each day for my fix really isn’t the ideal solution so I opted for an at home Nespresso Lattissima Touch.
Just a few short weeks in and I am a convert. How I didn’t make the leap sooner I don’t know but it really has brightened these dull, dark mornings for me.
The sleek and compact design looks great in the kitchen, even in a teeny one like mine it’s ideal! Once set up the machine is super simple to use, I love that you can program the amounts of water and milk to fit your own coffee cup size. Daily I reach for the same favourite mug so to be able to set it perfectly for that is a real bonus, one touch and you have the perfect coffee.
It’s also easy to clean which for a busy mum like me is an absolute essential.
Having the milk frother built in really creates that barista style coffee at home, it’s also really handy for the kids. They have been loving a frothy warm milk or hot chocolate.
As a newbie to the Nespresso world all the different pods were rather daunting to me; did I want a floral taste? Do I prefer woody coffee? All the different intensity ratings did get me in a bit of a tiz. Thankfully the machine came with a selection of different pods to try. It game me the chance to get a feel for what I preferred before purchasing more. Nespresso pods aren’t the cheapest, but if you are a coffee lover like me when you find the ones you like they are well worth the money. Shopping online can also see you find some great deals.
So far really happy with the machine; if you are looking for great coffee made easy at home is is definitely one for you!
