Coffee plays an important role in modern day society. This statement is justified by the fact that coffee is the second most popular drink in the world, water understandably being the most popular. Whether you are a stock broker on Wall Street, a high school teacher or a stay at home mother, statistics say that it is very likely that you start your day with a cup of coffee. This social lubricant, also know to lower the risk of heart attacks and diabetes is one of the most demanded products in the world. It is fairly obvious why coffee chains like Starbucks and Costa Coffee have been so successful.
But why stand in long queues early in the morning? Why pay exorbitant prices when you can make that perfect cup of coffee in the comfort of your own home. Nestle have managed to make your coffee making experience even more comfortable with Nespresso. Nespresso allows you to make perfectly pressured and brewed coffee in just a couple of minutes, avoiding the various time consuming steps required with traditional coffee beans.
The coffee comes in the form of capsules that are directly inserted into the coffee maker. These capsules, made of aluminum foil are sealed tight preventing the coffee from degrading over time. There are 19 distinct flavors each varying in taste and intensity. Some prefer pure origin blends while others may choose the decaffeinated varieties. Variety packs are also available and is a great way for beginners to discover their favorite blend of Nespresso coffee. The capsules come in 25ml and 40ml sizes and are easily available at retail stores and online.
