Officially ruined

Let me get something straight. I’ve always been an instant coffee girl. Quite happily. Yes, espresso is lovely, but without an espresso maker, who can afford to buy a daily espresso? Not I. Espresso was a once a fortnight treat. Until now. The Koala and I were very spoilt and received a ROK manual espresso maker from my parents for Christmas. I’ve been enjoying a lot of espresso lately. The ROK is a breeze to use and best of all, it’s FUN. Make something fun to use and it will practically run itself. Why we love the ROK: Great tasting espresso Easy to use Easy to clean Fun 10 year warranty Does not require electricity (just add boiling water) Beautifully designed Comes with spoon/tamper (spamper) Makes a double shot espresso by default I’ve been avoiding coffee at work because I fear instant coffee wont live up to espresso, but after a couple of weeks of espresso, I had my first instant coffee and I found it tasted like ass. What have you ruined for yourself …
