Casual Friday - Tassimo - Radiant

So, we're friends right?

I mean, if you were to stumble onto something that pretty much changed your life, you'd drop me a note wouldn't you?

Well, it's on the basis of that mutual care and concern for each other that I bring you today's post.

You see, I've been a coffee drinker for a number of years now. Admittedly, I have tried to stop drinking that beverage on a few occasions over the past year for a number of reasons, but of late I've found myself once again succumbing to it's Siren call. I had designs on another attempt at a cold turkey quit, but as of yesterday, I fear those designs have been replaced with an even greater commitment to the bean beverage.

What happened to cause such a drastic change in my approach to coffee? In a word: Tassimo

We often compare new inventions as being the best thing since 'sliced bread'. Well, move over bread, because now you are just the distant relative (a few times removed) to the new measure of best inventions.

For those of you who aren't familiar, the Tassimo machine is a modern technological wonder. Within about a minute of addressing the machine, one can have a perfectly controlled and brewed cup of steaming hot coffee in his or her hand. There is no argument over how many scoops of grinds need to be added to the machine, you simply place the drink disc in the machine, your cup in the dispensing area and hit go. It's so beautiful and easy, just thinking about it has caused my eyes to glisten.

Do I have what amounts to an unhealthy relationship with coffee and now this new coffee-making machine? Perhaps.

But for you coffee lovers out there who share in my desire for a quality cup of Joe each morning, late morning, early afternoon, late afternoon, and evening (and late evening), the Tassimo will be a life-changing experience.

Consider it my gift to you.
