Milk and Honey Iced Coffee: oh, you sweet, roasty, light, milky perfection.
No, wait, just reread that one more time. The fact that I can use all those describing words together to try to transfer this heavenly drink through the computer and into your mouth is proof that there is a magic trick involved here.
That magic trick has a name called Nespresso VertuoLine System. It takes that small space on my kitchen counter and creates a kind of homemade coffee shop fairy tale where *poof* I’m sitting out on the deck with a cute mug of iced coffee complete with striped paper straw and bonus –> I am still wearing my ratty high school hoodie and yogies and my hair is in a bedhead braid. Coffee shop in the house, yo.
The story of coffee in my life started back in high school. I know, shame on my 18-year-old self for drinking caffeine. I think I was tricking myself into being ready for college, where I would go on to be a “coffee” drinker slash champion guzzler of candy flavored creamers. Gah.
Then came married life – with two coffee drinkers in the fam, we got a single serve coffee maker with the little capsules and buttons and all that sparkly jazz. It was fun, but then it quit working and it took up a lot of space and created unnecessary waste (honestly, why has someone not come up with a recyclable single serve coffee capsule yet?) and so, long story short, we parted ways and haven’t looked back.
Currently we’re in Phase: French Press. Yummy yum yum. We love the French press and it’s used every morning in our house for the two rounds of daily coffee. Bjork is the champion coffee grinder and water steeper, so he and the French press have something special going on. I just reap the roasty-delicious-warmth-in-a-mug-yes-I-CAN-get-out-of-bed benefits and I do. not. complain.
