Are you someone who has to have something to eat in the morning? I can’t skip breakfast. Morning hunger needs to be dealt with or the morning just isn’t going to go well! Even if it’s just something small, like a few of these mini sprinkle scones! And the perfect pairing to a couple of mini sprinkle scones? A cup of coffee!
Before the day starts I like to sit down with a good cup of coffee and plan out what I want to accomplish. It gives me a bit of time to think before the craziness of the day begins. To help simplify my morning routine so I have more time to prepare for the day ahead, I turn to NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto®.
I normally turn to my pour over for a flavorful, strong cup of coffee in the morning. I grind the beans each morning, heat the water, and get pouring. So, when I first gave the machine a try, I was a little wary of the quality of coffee I would be drinking.
No watered down, flavorless coffee here! The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto has a professional-grade pressure system (15 bars of pressure!) that extracts deep, rich flavors and aromas out of every cup! (Check out the froth!) Flavorful and rich. Just what my morning needs!
The best part is you can customize your coffee to your liking. Don’t like your coffee as strong as I do? You can customize it to make it lighter. Don’t want it hot? Make it iced! Want a different size every morning? Well, you’re in luck. This coffee machine can make anywhere from a 2 ounce to a 12 ounce cup! (Oh, and the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto also makes tea, lattes, cappuccinos, espresso, and hot chocolate!)
Now while I’m grabbing a couple of these tender, flaky scones, I can let the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto make my coffee for me so I have more time to figure out how to seize the day ahead (and to enjoy another scone!)!
