I just got the urge to show you our Nespresso setup. (And no, this is in no way a sponsored post - I just happen to really love it.)
This is a really important part of our kitchen and daily routine. I start most mornings with a cup of coffee, and if I’m alone I always opt for the Nespresso Vertuo. We have a Moccamaster too but that’s really only worth it if I’m making coffee for more people. My husband usually has breakfast at work, so unless he’s working from home, it’s just me.
And speaking of working from home, Nespresso is perfect for the after-lunch coffee as well. My favorite for that is a flat white - a double espresso with foamed milk. In the mornings, I usually make a bigger mug. This is what I love about the Vertuo vs. the classic machine - bigger capsules make bigger cups of coffee.
Our foamer is an Aeroccino 4. It’s really nice way to use, and while I like it I’m contemplating getting the very cool Barista foamer instead. Has anyone tried it? It’s programmable for a variety of drinks and I can really see that it would be handy!
Our capsules box is from Amazon and it truly makes me happy. It holds up to 50 capsules and takes virtually no extra space on the (already overcrowded) counter. Definitely a good buy! As for what capsules to get… it’s really up to you. With the classic line we always got the strongest ones, but I find that’s not at all the same with the Vertuo. I usually opt for the ones that say 6-8, and I always have milk with my coffee.
