Sorry Starbucks… You have a special place in my heart, no doubt. Both Jen and I have the Starbucks Gold Cards to prove it. Today, however; I’m enjoying the perfect cup. I’ve recently seen few fellow photographers’ blogs posting about their coffee preferences what matters most to them. When we aren’t at Starbucks, we rely pretty heavily on our Tassimo brewer. Yesterday reminded me how cool it was to have this. We hosted a party at our house and for about 12 different people, we brewed 12 different drinks. Some decaf, some half mocha, some lattes, some espresso… etc. About a year ago we received Our Braun Tassimo coffee maker from Cristina and Pat as a gift. (We thank you guys every day!) 😉 I just wanted to say what huge fans we are of it.
The super talented Robert J. Trenske just posted a feature on his blog about his Keurig machine, which is not doubt another awesome option. I think the same principles apply to our Tassimo about the cost per cup, etc. Every day the coffee is perfect and exactly as the day before… (More than I can say for Dunkin Donuts) lol
I also thought that in raving about our coffee maker, I should point out to Carla that my cup is better than yours!
The ultra-famous Carla Ten Eyck recently blogged about her cup here… Actually I think they are the same and both of ours were gifts from our close friend Jacob Bergmeier. He got the cups from a close friend of his who makes these gorgeous ceremics. Check out his website here with all his amazing work www.thaddeuspowersart.com
In any case if you are looking for a simple solution for awesome coffee, these pod coffee makers are definitely worth every penny. As long as they don’t open a Starbucks near our house… this will still be my favorite coffee! (Of course I use Starbuck’s pods in my Tassimo)
