Coffee plays a MAJOR role in my morning. Many people often refer to 'rules of the house' and in our house, the first to get up is the first to make the coffee before we both head off to work. What's sad is I am normally two coffees into my day by the time I sit down and start to tackle emails. I've been drinking pod cup coffee since I was in university (I actually don't know how to brew a pot - eek) and while it wasn't always the best tasting, it did the trick to jolt me into my day. In recent months however, Adam and I both noticed our go-to Starbucks orders were evolving to latte's, cappuccino's and other coffee-drinks that our pods just couldn't replicate. Enter the Saeco GrandBaristo coffee machine :) Total game changer. 

Despite offering 16 coffee options and featuring two coffee grind trays, the unit is sleek and blended in well with the rest of our kitchen decor (a definite must-have for us). And yes, set up was shockingly way easier and user-friendly than I had expected - bonus! 

A cappuccino or macchiato are the two drinks I typically opt for. I also love that the milk carafe easily pops in and out so I can use Almond Milk for my drinks and Adam has a second for his whole milk (recommended for frothy drinks). The machine also uses ceramic grinders which consistently grind the beans and avoid over-heating the coffee. We've both been able to personalize our own settings so the perfect coffee for you really is just at the touch of a button. 

I've had this art print forever and I'm so excited I finally have a coffee nook to display it in :) 
The best way to ease into my morning: macchiato and fresh scones. 
Overall, the GrandBaristo has been a pleasant addition to our morning routine and has certainly made our house rule a lot easier to follow ;)

Thank you to Saeco for partnering on this post. Thoughts and opinions are my own.
