Lately, we've been tightening the budget and we knew such would have to go. It was way too much of a waste; even if we're doing all right financially. Still, I do like coffee and I knew I didn't like freeze-dry coffee or those coffee in tea bags. What's a person to do? Especially since we were both reminded how much we occasionally like a cup of coffee while visiting family?
Well, there are these interesting one cup coffeemakers that make one cup at a time with a proprietary delivery system for the coffee grounds (and other products). Jeff and I decided to get one. We got the Tassimo and I am in love. Seriously. First, the thing works as advertised but it is also easy to use, doesn't take a lot of time and it is surprisingly good. Plus, it does more than coffee. It does espresso, mochas, chai, hot chocolate and flavored coffee. The machine was expensive—worth about 40 grande mochas—or about two months worth of coffee out of the house.
I love this thing. I do. I really like the chai and the hot chocolate. I like the coffee and I like how easy it is. Wonder of wonders, I believe this will be on luxury machine that we actually continue to use on a regular basis and not something that will sit mostly dormant in a cabinet (like the bread maker, the Set-it-and-Forget-it rotisserie and the awesome countertop mixer).
So, there you have it: the wonder and joy of something that works as advertised.
