Are you a coffee or tea person? I’m pretty much a tea person while my husband is a coffee person. My blog’s name, ‘Over A Cuppa Tea’, suggest that much, but these days, I pretty much do fancy both and has taken quite a liking to cafe hopping to hunt for coffees or simply chilling in the cafe with my husband over a cuppa coffee or two. There’s simply something charming and romantic about drinking coffee with your loved ones in a quiet cafe somewhere. And of course, inspirational too. I noticed that I’m much more productive with my work whenever I do it while I’m in a cafe and I eventually yearn more and more to enjoy the same experience at home.
A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet, but unfortunately for me, not all coffees are made equal and enjoying a satisfyingly delicious cup of coffee in the comfort of my home or office is almost impossible. I can never completely imitate my favourite barista’s brew at home. At least, not with those 3 in 1 pre-packed coffees sold in convenient stores. While they do offer me some caffeine fix, they do not actually satiate my cravings for real brewed coffees.
Fortunately for me though, there’s a solution for my dilemma; Arissto Happy Maker 2.0 Espresso Machine.
My new Arissto Happy Maker 2.0 Espresso Machine, still in a box.
Arissto Happy Maker 2.0 Espresso Machine. The machine is pretty compact and the design lets you fit it into any small corner of your choice.
And unlike the traditional coffee makers, this coffee machine uses coffee capsules instead of coffee beans.
There’s currently a total of 10 capsules being offered by Arissto to coffee lovers. Each of ARISSTO’s signature flavors is expertly crafted by Italian Coffee Masters. They carefully sourced from the highest quality Arabica coffee beans from the mountain at an altitude of 2,000 meters in Brazil, Columbia, Costa Rica, Guatamala, Togo, Kenya, Ethiopa and many other countries to create a variety of unique ARRISTO Signature Flavours.
ARISSTO SUNRISE – A perfect balance of nuttiness and richness, it’s spirited and pleasing. This makes it a perfect match for Americano and many other types of coffee. My personal favourite as this flavour is the best choice to brew a cup of Macchiato.
ARISSTO PASSION -Features a strong body with a robust taste. And if I were to describe it, I have to say that it is almost similar to dark chocolate. Due to its strength and is less affected by milk, it is suited for coffee variations such as Latte or Cuppacino.
ARISSTO IN LOVE – features coffee with medium acidity and body. This coffee has a deep sweet flavour with low bitterness level. Highly recommended to those who prefers sweetness in their coffees.
ARISSTO PEACE– 100% composed of premium Columbia Supremo coffee beans, it’s simply soothing. Highly recommended for those who fancy coffee like the Americano or Colombian style.
ARISSTO LONELY– Blended from the finest beans from 5 continents, the richness of this high intensity roast provides a balanced taste with notes of bitterness. Great for those who loves absolute bitterness with lingering aftertaste in their coffee.
ARISSTO MOONLIGHT – A perfect balance of satisfying medium body and crisp acidity, it expresses a light rounded blend of exquisite fresh fruits.
ARISSTO MILK– This is not a coffee capsule, per se, but rather a milk capsule companion for the rest of the capsules.
ARISSTO LUNA (Intensity *Unknown*)– This blend of Central and South American Arabicas is a dark roast with revolutionary technology, 100% made in Italy, 100% natural without artificial flavorings which reveal distinguished aromatic profile. This full-bodied and balanced flavour with a touch of floral notes makes you feel like you’re enjoying the Italian moonlight.
ARISSTO AMICO (Intensity *Unknown*)– A selection of the Arabicas from Central and South Americas with revolutionary technology, 100% made in Italy, 100% natural without artificial flavorings creates this medium roasted coffee which reveals a strong character with intense, cocoa and clove notes.
ARISSTO CHOCO – Cocoa capsule which gives you a velvety smooth texture that melts once taste. You can enjoy it as finest chocolate drink or mix with coffee for a mocha.
The machine is very easy to use. Here’s how you operate the machine:
1. Fill up the water tank with water, preferably filtered water and if you want, water infused with any flowers of your choice if you want a cup of coffee laced with flowery taste.
2. Flip on the switch at the bottom left near the water tank.
3. Fit in the capsule of your choice.
4. Place a cup at the machine
5. Press the button and voila, your coffee will be ready in 30 seconds.
