Is there anything better than that first sip of coffee in the morning? My morning routine always starts with a fresh cup of coffee. Every morning I wake up, take a quick shower, throw in a pod into my Nespresso machine, while it brews, I feed the pups and then head into the bathroom to finish getting ready for the day.
It’s my time of the day where the house is still quiet, the dogs are running around in our backyard and I can enjoy my coffee without interruption. Without fail, my morning routine is consistent to say the least. I wake up between 6:30-7:00, depending on if I hit the snooze a few times, hop in the shower, and head straight to the kitchen to make my first cup of coffee. I head to my desk to press publish on my post for the day (or let’s be honest: I sit on the couch with the TODAY show in the background), check social media, and sip my coffee while I check out my favorite sites and respond to emails. After cup number one, I continue to get ready for the rest of my day.
I would say I am somewhat of a coffee snob, I always have been, because life’s too short to drink bad coffee, right? So when my friends at Nespresso sent me over their new Nespresso VertuoLine, I couldn’t wait to try their new American full cup of coffee + authentic espresso maker. I am normally a latte kind of girl, but sometimes I just want to be able to sip on a cup of regular coffee, so needless to say I am completely obsessed. Did I mention I am on my 2nd cup already? It is perfect for a little extra energy at about 2pm (or 10am if you are like me), especially because you can make a single cup in an instant.
