GOOD MORNING | Nespresso is the perfect alarm clock

Nespresso machine

I have a pretty set morning routine; wake up around 5:30, spend an hour on emails and my blog and do a quick morning workout, all while sipping on a delicious Nespresso.

Some people think a good coffee is all about the flavored milk, others think it’s all about a whipped cream toppings and sugar. For me, it’s all about the quality of the expresso. And let me tell you something, Nespresso has figured it out.

Nespresso podsI pour about half a cup of milk into a mug and pop it into the microwave for 30 seconds. I add a dash of sugar, a pinch of cinnamon, and slide it under the Nespresso spout. I push the button and the smell of hot, delicious expresso fills the kitchen. It puts a smile on my face instantly :)

Since the Nespresso pods are a bit of an odd shape to store, I use an olive tray. Unconventional, but the perfect size and shape to keep on your counter next to the machine!

WARNING: Nespresso is very addictive! The boyfriend got so obsessed with drinking them in the mornings at my place, he bought a machine for his own house for the mornings he wasn’t at mine. He now can’t fathom a morning without it.

On afternoons when I’m dragging a bit more than usual, I make a small Nespresso shot, add a bit of sugar, and down it! The perfect pick me up :) The coffee is so smooth you can easily sip it without any bitter aftertaste.

I love the Ristretto pod flavor, but there are so many more to choose from! I’m dying to try out the Ciocattino (aka chocolate flavored)!

Nespress actually makes me look forward to waking up. What kind of coffee do you rely on in the mornings to kick-start your day?

    Well said, drinking a good coffee in the morning makes even the worst days better! I think I don’t even drink it for the caffeine but only for the taste:)
