Wake up and smell the coffee…

Yup. That’s our aim !

It’s been our everyday mantra for decades.  But in our simple life, we no longer have our coffee grinder to give that smell… it’s not exactly nomadic life friendly ! 

Still we’re consciously living every moment in other ways.

How to get that fresh coffee smell


Our Nespresso machine is pretty amazing, and you do get a gentle coffee aroma, but we don’t get that smack of a smell from grinding the coffee beans ourselves. 

If you’re using a filter or a manual espresso machine you need to have freshly ground beans. You can get a similar ‘hit’ of coffee bean aroma when you open a vacuumed bag of coffee. ( The first opening is the best ! )

See which machine we couldn’t let go of, so had to leave behind in the UK… for now.

And, after many months of research see which other coffee machines we have had, loved and sold on, and which ones we also recommend and why.

We want to help you find the right tools to cook better. But we’re all suffering from information and salesmen overload online!  So… we want to simplify and clarify it,  so you can make faster and better choices.
