Edward and I – we are both coffee lovers. Life without coffee = life without sun! The feeling in the morning, when you sleepwalk in to the kitchen and switch your coffee machine on – the sound, the smell and of course the taste of the freshly made coffee, starts waking you up immediately! And then, after drinking your very first cup in the morning, the boost of energy, that comes across is so pleasant! It all makes morning duties so much easier to cope with… How do people survive without coffee??? I don’t think someone would ever be able to convince me it is possible…
Our very first coffee machine (or hot drinks maker) was Bosch Tassimo Fidelia T40, that Edward’s brother Jim gave us for Christmas couple of years ago. It was one of the best and probably most used Christmas presents ever (could be a hint, if you don’t know what to buy for your loved ones). Tassimo Fidelia T40 machine is nice looking, very easy to use and maintain. Has got a big range of teas, coffees, hot chocolate, that you can buy in pretty much any big supermarket. You can check out their huge range of hot drinks HERE. However, we used to mostly use it for coffee and sometimes for hot chocolate. We really really loved it. The water tank of this coffee machine was big enough, so when guests come over, you don’t have to keep on filling it up with water every two cups. The only tiny little minus about Tassimo Fidelia T40 hot drinks maker was, that their pods are a bit pricey. But nothing, that you couldn’t afford.
However we recently decided to upgrade. After some researches, our final choice was Nespresso Krups XN100140 Inissia Coffee Machine in Cream colour. We bought it in Curry’s, together with the froth maker. Machine came with 16 capsule assortment of coffees, which was very handy – we could pick our favourites without wasting money. There was also included menu describing all coffees. This Coffee machine makes two types of coffee – Lungo (regular cup) or Espresso (small and strong). Nespresso Krups XN100140 Inissia Coffee Machine is very compact and I really love the cream colour that we picked- looks great in the kitchen! They have a lot of different colours of the machines, to please everyone’s taste. 🙂
Generally I am really happy with Nespresso Krups XN100140 Inissia Coffee Machine. My only complaint would be, that the lungo coffee, that is supposed to be a regular cup is still really small – I love a BIG cup of coffee in the morning… Therefore I ended up making double lungo, which is of course less cost effective. But coffee tastes amazing! If you decide to buy the Nespresso Krups Inissia Coffee Machine, don’t even thing, but get it together with a Black Aeroccino Milk Frother! It makes lovely hot or cold milk froth. Perfect for amazing cappuccino or latte! You really won’t regret this, I promise! 🙂 It also comes out cheaper, if you buy them. You and your guests will love it, have my word for it.
