My name is Mrs Tink and I have a confession…. I’m a coffee snob. For many years now I’ve been a long time sufferer and have found it impossible to find somewhere that can make a decent double shot small cappuccino with half the amount of skim milk.
Baristas cringe as I walk in, I think I may give off a coffee snob vibe, and time and time again I leave feeling sick from too much milk and not enough ‘coffee pow’ (a Mrs Tink word for coffee intensity). I’d been long bitching to all who would listen that I was going to ditch coffee and try something new until I received an offer too good to refuse.
Jura the leaders in fab coffee machines asked me to review one of their gorgeous machines the Impressa A9. Having owned multiple coffee machines before, I’d had my fair share of at home coffee machine horror stories and then there was the dreaded cleaning processes! But, I’d heard lots of amazing things about Jura and who was I to turn down the Rolls Royce of coffee machines? Sign me up Eddie!
The day my new roommate arrived it was love at first sight. The Impressa A9 was sleek, sexy and it looked professional. I figured even if it made terrible coffee at least it would look amazing in my kitchen. I unpacked and skimmed through the instructions (instructions are not my strong point) eager to try out this gorgeous machine and to my luck the set up was super dooper easy.
Within 10 minutes I’d filled it with my Zarraffa’s coffee beans and I was off and rolling. One press of the computerised touchscreen and Bob’s your uncle! I pressed espresso first, followed by cappuccino and within seconds the air filled with the most incredible aroma and I quickly knew the machine didn’t just look good – it was incredible. I excitedly grabbed my cup ready for the moment of truth and took a big sip. It was HEAVEN! Hand on my heart the best coffee I have ever had. Ever!
Not only did it taste fantastic, it was quick, easy and pain free. I then insisted I make everyone in my presence a coffee because I felt so clever, I was the barista now and a very good one at that. The Jura machine made me look as though I’d been a pro coffee maker for years. So needless to say I’ve become a little addicted and can’t wait to wake up each morning to use it.
Plus one HUGE perk is I’m saving a fortune! Last week I saved $30 on take away coffees which means more money for shoes and shiny things.
