This is a review post written for Dolce Gusto.
Infatuation with coffee is all me.
There are some moments in life, when it pays to look around. Give things a try, see how they feel, make an informed decision. I myself have just spent the morning investigating preschools for my child; checking things out is good.
There comes a time though, when you need to make a commitment. Which preschool will you choose? Which car will you buy? What colours sandals to wear with your dress? Big decision or small, you need to make a choice, and be happy with it. Because if you walk out of the house wearing the wrong shoes, there’s no going back. (Unless you do actually go back. Go back home I mean. Or buy new shoes. Which sounds like a great excuse really.)
I believe in commitment. I believe in following things through. I believe in happily ever after and till death do us part, and so pains me to admit this, but…
I broke up with my coffee machine.
It feels better just admitting it.
Now you’ve heard the story, or at least I hope you have. It’s here if you wanna read it. Go on, I’ll wait.
So you know what a love tale it was. Coffee machine and frother united in life, eternal in death.
Yeah well not long after that post another frother her bit the dust, and it was just me and my coffee, and my luke-warm milk, going through life together, as best we could.
And, you know what? It was ok.
It wasn’t bad, and we had something good times, but there was something missing. The spark was gone. Plus the machine had expensive pods and it was costing me a small fortune to keep her happy.
Boatman tried to fix the problem; he bought me another milk frother, God bless his heart, and things got better, they really did.
But only marginally, and quite honestly, life is too short for more expensive, only marginally better coffee.
Not when you can have cafe-quality coffee at home.
And so I was seduced. A funky red mistress arrived in my mail box with all of her delicious pods, and her fancy buttons, plus reasonable sized water tank. And I fell for her.
I fell hard.
It wasn’t even twelve hours and I was shipping the old machine off and out the door (to Boatman’s work), and giving my new love, pride of place on the bench
And I haven’t regretted it. Not for a second.
She’s like my old flame, but better. The new improved version with electric buttons, and a larger tank, and tasty pods that come on sale!
And the choices!
Oh my am I spoilt for choice.
Hot, cold, with milk or without, every day or a little bit fancy. No wonder I’m in love.
Plus, and let’s face it, this is an important factor: I feel as if I am getting my coffee from a space ship. And who doesn’t want that kind of caffeine experience? Especially when it’s a red, sleek, space-saving space ship that sits on my bench?
So yes, I cheated. Yes, I turned my back. And no, I would never advocate leaving an actual human relationship for another, but in the case of the coffee machine? Totally worth it. 🙂
The Nescafe Dolce Gusto is the perfect Christmas gift for your loved one this year. With affordable, quality coffee, in a great range of flavours, it really does offer the best value for money on the market.
Plus, you know, coffee.
Would you ever cheat on your coffee machine?
Don’t you want to drink coffee from space?
