Hubby bought me a Nespresso machine and today I hit the boutique in Wellington. While this was a first for me and I was out of pods, apparently driving two hours each way is normal for Nespresso Members … who knew !!!
So I described how I was having my coffee. Expresso shot size (40 ml) but in Longi (110 ml) size. I did not realise the size related to the coffee in the pod. I did not know this. what is worse was that once the shock faded in the shop assistant, she informed me I had been stressing my coffee.
I never thought those three words would go together … stressing my coffee!! The shame was palpable!! I now have two ways to make coffee my way and not “stress my coffee”. I bought some longitude pods too so that I could keep my coffee calm.
Does anyone else find the fact coffee can be stressed . .. well … absurd? I will dutifully follow the new instructions, just so they don’t kick me out of the club. What would George (Clooney) say?
It’s a funny world. Technology rules ever more of our lives and we change to accommodate them. Who is in charge of who?
