Don’t even talk to me until I’ve had my coffee!
When I first heard about the Nespresso brewer, I was thrilled. As a working mom, I’m usually on-the-go. I knew that this machine would be the answer to my prayers: the bliss of espresso without the hassle of coffee shop lines and prices.
The machine delivered as promised, producing any coffee you want within seconds of pushing the button. Overtime, my boredom with the flavor brought me back to my old routine of going to a coffee shop everyday. Then I discovered Angelino’s, and it felt like my passion for coffee reignited.
A Lukewarm Reception
One morning, I was getting ready to take my daughter to school. Per usual, I was running late. I asked my husband, “Can you take Sophia to school today? I don’t think I’ll have time to stop for coffee if I do.”
He shrugged, “It would save you more time and money in the morning if you used our Nespresso here at home.”
“Hmm, you’re right. Not really sure why I haven’t been using it?” I wondered.
“Maybe all you need is to try something new. You should explore other Nespresso compatible brands, you might find a better alternative,” he said.
A Huge Realization
My husband was right. I don’t remember the last time I bought new capsules to brew and was excited. That night, I spent some time looking online for Nespresso compatible brands.
I started to make a list of what is most important to me in deciding which brand to buy next:
- It has been a goal of mine that I’ve put off for a while, but I would love to start supporting small businesses.
- Quality is non-negotiable, but I’d really like to get consistently good coffee without the big brand prices.
- Being so busy, convenience matters a lot. I don’t have the time to always run to a store or browse a complicated site to find what I need.
What Really Mattered
After making this list, I took a break from coffee while looking for a new brand to try, I eventually narrowed it down to Angelino’s.
What really piqued my interest was the story behind the brand, it was family-owned! I could really see that this brand was defined by their family values, passion, and company culture.
I decided to ask my coffee connoisseur friend Stacy if she knew about Angelino’s during our Tuesday spin class.
Coffee With Friends
“I’ve been meaning to ask, have you tried Angelino’s?” I asked.
She smiled. “That’s my favorite brand!”
My eyes lit up, “No way, really? What do you like about it?”
“Yup, they’re an online brand,” she said, leaning in. “They’re all I drink now. And they’re not expensive either – I only pay 47¢ per capsule and delivery is free!”
.47¢ per capsule and free delivery?! It didn’t seem bad compared to how much I was spending at the coffee shop.
“Wow, that’s great!” I admitted, “I’ll be honest I haven’t tried that many brands but I’m hoping that the next one I try checks off most of what my requirements are.”
“Well aside from the cost, they are one of the few Nespresso alternatives that sell aluminum capsules. This is a huge plus because it really seals in the freshness of the coffee,” she said, “Their shipping time is pretty quick, I usually receive my order within 3 days.”
“You had me at ‘convenience.’ You know how important that is to me!” I said.
“You won’t be disappointed,” Stacy continued, “If you decide to order online, you should purchase one of their variety packs, I loved their 4 blends!”
“Wow, it sounds too good to be true. Alright, you convinced me!” I said.
“Here, let me send you my referral link,” she said. “We both get rewards when you sign up and make your first purchase!”
