Staying in for coffee

I’ve never been a coffee drinker. I’ve enjoyed the smell, but never liked the taste. For a long time, I just never had coffee, but I must admit to occasionally being pressured to find something to drink in a coffee shop and opting for the sweetest, most caramel-enhanced, beverage the menu has to offer.

I have a feeling that’s all about to change, as the festive period brought with it a new Tassimo into our house. Two days in, two Costa coffee lattes later, and I’m converted. Who knew coffee could actually taste nice?

I’ve had drinks from a Tassimo before, but always chosen hot chocolate or tea (which is nice but ends up with frothy milk which is kinda odd). Now, I can’t believe I’ve been missing out this whole time. I know these machines come in for a lot of criticism, but having that fresh coffee smell in the house for the sake of putting a pod in the top and pressing a button is the kind of convenience I like.

So 2018 is off to a pretty good, and somewhat energised, start. Lattes now, but check back in with me later and I’ll likely have worked up to the espresso!
