So I got a new toy! With the Starbucks around me either being closed or drive-thru only and the lines being WAY too long to conquer before I drop my kiddo off and get to work (yes I'm still going to work), I got myself a @nespresso Vertuo Plus! With businesses being closed to walk-in customers, there have been a lot of really great online sales. I haven't 'needed' anything big but when the newest version of the Nespresso machine that I've wanted for years went on sale for more than $100 off, came with the hot and cold foam milk frother/steamer AND I could stack my @bedbathandbeyond 20% off coupon on top of it... I leaped at the opportunity!!
This machine is SO cool! I love lattes and Americanos but a Keurig can't pull espresso shots. A true espresso machine is waaaaay out of my budget (although one day I will totally own one) so a Nespresso was a perfect compromise. I can have run of the mill drip coffee from my Keurig on a day to day basis and then periodically treat myself with a latte, cappuccino, Americano, or flat white and never have to leave the house! This machine can also produce regular coffee as well should I feel like slowly sipping on a rubust cup of joe while I read in my comfy chair. On a side note, I didn't realize that the first pod I tried (Stormio) has 180mg of caffeine per 7.7oz cup. A regular cup of coffee has closer to 95-100mg per 8oz cup. I drank it while I did my night school class. I'm not typically affected by caffeine but I was up until 2:00am that night!! Anxiety and caffeine will keep your eyeballs wide open all night long!! HaHa!
So bottom line, I totally recommend this machine. As a single lady on a budget I wont use it exclusively simply because each pod will run you anywhere from $1-1.25 each. Still cheaper than Starbucks but also not something that I want to make a daily habit. .
