Foam Party

For the past two weeks, I’ve been giving my house a makeover. It’s both fun and exhausting: the shopping, the moving furniture, the arranging … As part of kitchen version 2.0 I’ve added a Nespresso VertuoLine to the mix. It’s the brand’s latest and greatest machine. Get this, not only does it make espresso, it’s also makes coffee. Yup, both. And you haven’t seen this much delicious foam since those crazy foam parties we’ll pretend you didn’t attend in college. It’s all about the crema.

Not only has it brought a sexy element to my new kitchen, it’s also keeping me awake and moving after a day of lugging a grill from the back of the house to the garage and an office full of furniture to the garage to await a donation pickup. It’s my sexy little energy boost. And it has all new pods, too. My favorite flavor: Elvazio, it’s delicate and fruity—and tastes like the best wakeup I’ve had in a long, long time. This machine is actually smarter than a few people I know, too. It uses centrifusion technology to make sure every cup gets the most of its little pod. And each pod is packaged in such a way that the machine can use brand recognition to know exactly what it is you’re asking it to make. Coffee packed with crema for the a.m. and a shot of espresso to get you through the afternoon slump. I think we can all drink to that. Cheers.
