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.

Gourmesso Promo: Right now when you buy 10 sleeves of capsules you get a sleeve for FREE!


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.

Woohoo! I don’t need to remind you all how much I LOVE coffee, do I? If you forgot, you can check my cartoon version of myself & you’ll notice that I’m holding a nice hot cup of Joe. The only thing better than a quiet moment to myself with a mug of coffee, is making fancy coffee drinks for Woof Woof Papa, our friends and family! Well lucky me, I’m participating in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto and received product samples so that I could tell you all about it.

We’ve been having SO much fun testing out the Dolce Gusto Genio from NESCAFÉ, and besides being super easy to use, it’s also super fast and versatile, making it perfect for holiday get-togethers and entertaining. What really sets it apart from other coffee makers is that the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto is the only machine that truly delivers delicious, coffee house quality creations every time with patented smart capsule technology delivering up to 15 bars of professional pressure and espresso technology. You can go from making a Chai Latte to a Caramel Macchiato with no fuss or muss thanks to their uniquely designed capsules.

You just choose the coffee capsule for the type of drink you want to make, and the label shows you how much water you’ll need. Then you just dial it up on the machine and press GO. It makes hot and cold drinks…which we love since we’re in Florida and it sometimes gets too hot to fuss with hot drinks even for a coffee-holic like me!

Most of you know me well enough by now to know that I LOVE my coffee. If you hadn’t already noticed, I’m even enjoying a steaming cup of Joe in my cartoon logo!

I recently got to sample the Donut Shop Blend from Caza Trail and wanted to pass along the tip for those of you with a Keurig K-Cup Brewer, so you could enjoy some, too. It’s a blend of select coffees from Latin America and the single size servings are super convenient for busy mornings or when you need an on-the-go treat

It’s a crazy time of year and we’re all running around finishing (or starting) our holiday shopping on top of all the other stuff that busy families are up to right about now. Even if you’re always on the go, steal a few precious minutes and relax with a great cup of coffee you can make for yourself. You can locate the Donut Shop blend and 24 other Caza Trail varieties on their Amazon page.
