I have been wanting to freshen up my bar cart (I mean coffee cart) for awhile now but had no clue what to do! Since I do not typically drink very much alcohol, I thought I would put a fun twist on my cart and turn it into a coffee cart!
I love to drink a good cup of black coffee from my coffee pot but have been wanting to get something more convenient to put on my bar cart. At first, I thought a Keurig would be perfect. I had been eyeing this one for a few months but it was always sold out in white and I knew I wanted something white for my bar cart. Then, I saw one of my favorite bloggers, Ashlee from Little Lovelies post about a Nespresso and I was instantly sold! The Nespresso makers are really cool because the pods are actual espresso so you get a really strong brew. I got the Nespresso Lattissima One in Silky White and I literally couldn’t be happier!
The Lattissima One is really great because you can make three different types of drinks. Since it has an attached milk frother, you can make lattes and cappuccinos really easily. You can also make a single shot of espresso and you can make a Lungo as well. A Lungo is essentially a shot of espresso made with a little bit more water. I think that the Lattissima One has all of the bells and whistles that I need, BUT if you think you would want something with even more, the Lattissima Pro is the way to go!
When I ordered mine, it came with 16 pods to start off with, all in different flavors! Nespresso has an app that you can download when you register your machine. You can shop for pods right there on the app! Another really cool feature about the app is that you get welcome gifts! The first three orders that you place through the app come with a gift! I added a pair of espresso shot glasses with my first order and I love them! I use them when I make iced drinks because my tall glasses don’t fit under the machine!
I’ve had some people comment and say that pods can be hard to find. I haven’t had this problem since I order through the app, but I decided to look around for some. I did find some at Target! These Archer Farms pods are very affordable and they taste really, really good!
I think its safe to say I am loving this new bar cart setup! I find it so much easier now to just come down and make a latte in the morning. In the past, I would head to Starbucks every single morning. Now I love having this Nespresso so I don’t have to leave my house for coffee anymore LOL!
