Create Your Own Coffee Shop Cappuccino Without Leaving Your Home
Capresso Espresso & Cappuccino Machine EC-300 is a My Four and More Valentine Gift Idea
A delicious coffee shop cappuccino starts the day off right! Who is with me there?! Just a plain cup of coffee each morning didn’t seem to be enough to get me moving (plus, I am not a huge fan of regular coffee). The added caffeine in a double shot of espresso does the trick to get me going each day but a trip to the coffee shop came with a high price tag! Spending $5 each morning was just NOT in our budget! The productivity of my days with espresso was worth the money but I was not going to go into debt from spending $150 on coffee each month!
I was NOT a big fan of plain coffee and, to be honest, I wasn’t even a big fan of coffee with flavored creamer. There was something about the tasty froth on the top of my cappuccino. I needed something more than just coffee… I needed a couple of espresso shots to boost my energy for the day!
There were many days I would feel like I was dragging because I did not have the funds to cover my caffeine addiction! How in the world could I ever fix that? It was actually quite simple… I gave a Capresso Espresso & Cappuccino Machine a home on my kitchen counter so I can enjoy an extremely rich flavored, caffeinated cup of cappuccino each morning (regardless if the coffee shop was open or if I had the extra money).
The difference in Espresso Vs. Coffee
Most people have asked me what the difference is in coffee versus espresso. Have you ever had a cup of coffee at home versus a latte or cappuccino from the coffee shop? There is a much richer taste to anything made with espresso versus coffee! When making coffee, the coffee filters tend to take away some of the rich taste of the coffee beans. When making espresso, there is nothing holding back all of those rich flavors!
A single 8-ounce cup of coffee has roughly 80-150mg of caffeine. Just ONE espresso shot contains 40-75mg of caffeine within just a small shot glass of espresso measuring just one ounce. Typically, most people do at LEAST a double shot of espresso. You can drink less espresso while still receiving MORE caffeine than in a single glass of coffee. The more concentrated dose of caffeine gets into your system quicker to boost your energy level quicker!
An espresso machine just seemed so intimidating to me. I wondered if I could even operate it without messing anything up. The Capresso Espresso & Cappuccino Machine was so easy to use that I nailed it on the very first cup of cappuccino I made with it! I can’t believe I waited this long to get an espresso machine! Needless to say, the coffee shop hasn’t seen me for a while! I am loving having one of these in my very own home saving me time, money, and it also added an extra touch to the looks of my kitchen.

They are calling for snow here on Wednesday. Snow here shuts everything down since our area is not equipped to take care of the roads properly. Schools….. and coffee shops will be closed more than likely. However, I will still have the energy to spend time with my kiddos in the snow thanks to my Capresso Espresso & Cappuccino Machine! Bring on the SNOW!
