Because the Swiss LOVE coffee. And the reason I have been fairly reluctant to invite my Swiss friends back for coffee is because until now we had no dinky little machine that features in every household and brings forth the most amazing coffee in minutes. Prior to this, my way of making coffee involved at least half an hour of my coffee pot chugging away on the cooker and resulted in rather strong coffee – the kind that leaves a little harshness in the back of your throat. And Swiss coffee always seems to be full of gorgeous flavour and so smooth, not requiring the urgent need to glag a glass of water after drinking.
But at the same time I was unwilling to go down the coffee machine route - firstly because our kitchen is tiny and I could not see where on earth it would fit, and secondly because it seemed a little excessive for a family that drinks very little coffee (until now, we much preferred a cup of tea)
However, early this morning while shopping in Aldi, an offer on coffee machines leaped out at me. It looked so diddy, funky and cute, it just called to me in a quiet yodell-y kind of way. And before I knew it, I was at the checkout bearing my coffee machine and a pack of little coffee pots.
Two hours later, I am grinning my ass off after three expressos because the coffee tastes good and the machine is so funky – and fits perfectly into a tiny space between my mixer and microwave. So yes, I’m a convert. Bye bye tea bags and hello Crema gusto and Kaffeerahm J
