Isn’t she beautiful?
Okay, I’m going to let all my blogging writing friends in on a little secret. My husband bought this amazing machine for me for Christmas and I love it! I used to bundle up my little baby in her snowsuit and drag her out to get a latte every morning at a local chain and since I live in back-country suburbia, this bad habit would take me up to 40 minutes a day, not to mention $4.
Many times, the latte wasn’t even worth it. Since I insist on decaf (I know, seems useless, but it does give me a little charge in the morning) and I deduct that with decaf’s morning popularity that it’s been sitting on a hot burner too long.
So I saw this advertisement on a commercial and begged for my husband to get it and it has exceeded my expectations. What makes this machine so great is that it actually froths and heats the milk within the coffee pot and then blends the espresso into the pot. It is such a simple process I can set it up half-awake and the clean-up is a breeze. The latte is better than I could get at even the pricy coffee chain (we all know who I’m talking about) and there’s a recipe booklet that tells you how to make all the annoying different lattes that make you stand in line while each syrupy, whipped creamed, and cinnamon-sprinkled latte is made before yours.
Well, you can tell I’ve spent a lot of time in these chains, but no more! I can make a smooth, comforting latte whenever I want (and it’s good for everyone at home that I stick to decaf with how much I consume).
So how does this improve my writing you ask? Well, I save so much time in the morning which I can devote to writing and nothing improves writing more in these cold northern winters, than a steaming cup of something yummy to sip while you conjure up scenery and drama.
You can find this beautiful machine here. Enjoy!
