Coffee break


Nespresso doesn’t really need any advertising help from me. After all, they have George Clooney. But much as I like (lust after) the Cloonster, I was already a fan of those little capsules. And not for the coffee. Don’t get me wrong, I love to drink it. Indeed, my day hasn’t started right until I’ve had a cosy lungo, and my status as homemaker-in-chief is seriously threatened if we run out before I remember to order more. But the real reason I like Nespresso is because the capsules are so darned photogenic. They are colourful, and have a nice shape. And they go well with the espresso cups we bought on holiday in Portugal. The only downside is the coffee tends to get cold while I am photographing it. But I can hardly blame Nespresso for that. Until they invent a never-gets-cold coffee, I will just have to put up with it.
