Espresso Anyone?

I was so excited to wake up to the news this morning.  Seriously.  Right there on my local station, the anchors were talking about the new Verismo by Starbucks. Verismo is a single serve espresso maker with the ability to make a latte or Americano that actually tastes as if you just walked out of Starbucks.  I know because I have tried it.  That’s right – I tried it.

My news anchors want one for the studio, and I can honestly say, they should get one.  I want one, too.

When I was invited by Starbucks to attend the Verismo Preview at Blogher, I was skeptical.  I do not typically like single-serve coffee makers.  Never quite hot or bold enough for me, I end up either brewing a whole pot at home or more often than not, visiting my favorite barista for a cup of joe or Americano.  One shot of espresso from the Verismo later, I changed my mind.

Verismo is good.  Really good. Better than good.  I went back for a second latte the next day.  That good.

The Versimo is easy to use, and has a pretty sleek and sassy look to it – I have just the place in my home office for one.  I saw the Verismo in taupe, black, and burgundy red.  If you ask me, the burgundy red is groovalicious.

Lucky me – my birthday is next month, so my family should have no problem buying the perfect gift for me.

Edited to add:  You can now get yourself (or me) a Verismo here.

    I will have to try it! I just reloaded my card, so I am good to go. Thanks for the heads up.
