Coffee is universally known as the student’s and the worker’s helper – and for good reasons.
As you surely know, there are few things as effective as coffee when you need to stay up late to finish a project – or, at least, few things as effective and that taste so good.
Caffeine has many great benefits.
It keeps you active throughout the day, and makes you start the day with the right kind of energy.
It tastes awesome, especially once you have found you preferred way of drinking it – espresso, cappuccino, with soy milk, with different flavors.
It allows you to skip the annoying phase when you feel sleepy right after lunch, because it helps with digestion.
Still, not all coffees are the same.
Most Americans usually have American coffee – long and black, though slightly watery.
While it tastes quite good, there are a few negative sides in it.
First, it contains lots of caffeine.
This means that it is definitely an energy boost, but it could also be too much.
If you assume too much caffeine, in fact, you could suffer from insomnia, tachycardia and gastric problems.
This is why I decided to give up on American coffee.
I discovered the marvels of espresso instead.
It’s shorter, but trust me when I say that, if it is properly made, the taste is much better than American coffee.
It also contains less caffeine; therefore, you can drink more during the day to keep up with your daily routine.
Just so you know, the suggested amount you should keep to is a maximum of three cups a day.
Let’s now face a problem, though.
You have tried espresso, you have fallen in love with its rich taste and its strong texture… but how can you take it to your home or your office?
There are many different types of espresso machines.
They come in all shapes and sizes – but, most importantly, in all prices.
If you want to take home with you the real taste of the perfect Italian espresso, though, I suggest you buy a professional one.
They might cost a bit more, but the results speak for themselves: they are worth every penny.
Still, there some commercial espresso machines that, while still high-quality, are quite cheap and affordable.
You might argue that the moment when we all need our coffee the most is when we are working – and how are you going to be able to have an espresso at the office? You may be surprised, but there actually is a solution.
Mini espresso machines are becoming better and better with the passing of time.
As technology develops, these machines are slowly turning out to be basically as good as the bigger ones.
They are small, easy to carry with you.
You can keep it in your office and use it during your break, quickly and efficiently.
Just like bigger ones, mini espresso machines can be both cheap and expensive, according to their brand and quality.
If you pick a good one, you will surely have the best and most delicious energy boost every day with you at work.
