Are you in need of a coffee break? I sure am! People who know me will tell you that two things I really love, besides Woof Woof Papa & Daisy of course, are: a)finding great deals and b)coffee. Well, I’ve managed to combine the two by discovering Gourmesso, super affordable coffee capsules that are compatible with my Nespresso machine. It’s gourmet coffee without the gourmet price.
If you’ve got a Nespresso machine, or are thinking about getting one, you probably know that the coffee capsules can get a bit pricey. Gourmesso is a company offering quality coffee priced 30% less than Nespresso. With 20 blends, they’ve got a large variety of capsules, many of which are Fair-Trade certified.
My particular favorite right now is the Bolivia Pura Mezzo, which is certified Fairtrade International coffee. That means the beans used in this blend are grown and harvested in accordance with standards designed to increase sustainable development throughout the world. Made from 100% Arabica beans grown at an altitude of 6,000 feet in the Bolivian province of Caranavi, this blend is mildly aromatic, low in acidity and features a subtle note of chocolate.
The Gourmesso selection ranges from dark roast espressos, to medium and light roast options, including single-origin blends, and four different 100% Arabica blends. On top of that they also have three lungo espressos, a decaf blend, and six uniquely flavored blends including chocolate, vanilla, almond, and even coconut…can’t wait to try that one! All this info and more can be found in their coffee capsules shop so be sure to stop by and take a coffee break for yourself.
