The barista in me

by Sofia   -   in Cooking

It´s been a long time since I last spoke about coffee here. But a lovely lovebox delivery from Nespresso is worth a mention. They have 3 new limited edition Barista coffees. One, Barista Corto, suitable for ristrettos ( strong coffee), Barista Scuro (middle strength) for espresso macchiatos and Barista Chiaro ( the mildest one) for cappuccinos. So good!! My favourite is the Scuro. Toasted flavour with a hint of chocolate sounds about right. Perfect for an afternoon pick me up cup of coffee! My husband really likes the little bit bitter and strong Corto ( he is an espresso kind of guy) and the Chiaro that has cookies & caramel notes in it is also spot on for my morning cappuccinos. These are just natural flavours of the coffee beans used in these capsules not any added flavours.







I´m at that stage when I add my pumpkin spice mix to all my coffee and wonder why I don´t do it all year round. Then at some point I just get tired of it. It´s quite like glögi, Finnish mulled wine. When the Christmas season starts you want to drink it all the time but then you just suddenly have had enough and it´s time to move on to the next season and it´s flavours. But coffee itself is seasonless to me. 

Have a fabulous day!


This is a blog collaboration with Nespresso. Remember to recycle your coffee pods to the metallic trash! 

p.s. The Paris in Bloom book is such a feel good coffee table book. When ever I leaf through it it just calms me down. Can´t wait for my pre Christmas trip to Paris with my mom . It´s always my favourite time to go there. So inspiring. Although Spring in Paris is also incredible no one really does Christmas like Parisians. It´s understated and festive at the same time. I do love New York at Christmas time too though. But it´s more in your face Christmas carols and decorations.

Kiitos uusista kahvimakuvinkeistä! Toiveenani olisi päästä syyslomalla Nespressolle täydentämään kahvivarastojani talven varalle. Näitä pitää myös kokeilla. Olispa ihanaa päästä joskus kokemaan Pariisin joulu❤️
