“I don’t get the same vibe when I walk into a Starbucks.” The words I uttered to myself when approaching the Nespresso Boutique store for the Nespresso Holiday Cocktail event. The stylish coffee boutique on Lincoln Road is always a favorite of ours after dinner or before a movie so naturally I was excited to attend this event and try out a plethora of coffee cocktails. In typical South Beach fashion, I arrived to velvet ropes inside which separated guests of the event from customers of the store. Immediately I was drawn to the center of the store where a mixologist/barista was whipping up interesting concoctions of Nespresso coffee mixed with vodka, rum, gin, you name the alcohol, it was used.The beauty of Nespresso machines are not only how aesthetically beautiful they are, but also the amount of coffee drinks they can produce mixed with the quality of espresso you are getting is unparalleled to any of the competition.
I sampled the drinks and asked questions about their 8 different machines. They range from small yet powerful to the Gran Maestria (my personal favorite) that looks like you have an entire espresso bar at your house, albeit, not that big of a footprint on your counter space either.
The kind folks at Nespresso sent me a Gran Maestria and soon enough I’ll be showing it off and making the best coffee drinks for the family. With only 21 boutiques in the U.S. and 4 of them calling South Florida home, take advantage and try out their fabulous coffee and machines. I'd also like to add that our double stroller fits inside this coffee haven and they were quite kid-friendly when we stopped by for a drink afterwards!
