  • You can either place a nice runner on the table or cover your coffee table with a beautiful table cloth. In case of a tray, place a nice tray mat on it that matches your coffee cups.
  • You can also decorate your coffee cups by making a bow or flower with ribbons on it. Some people make a nice bow on the handle. It makes the coffee cup more alluring.
  • Do not forget to place napkins or tissue papers on the coffee table or your tray.
  • Coasters should also be placed on the table or coffee serving tray so that your guests can use them, this will prevent your table and tray from the round coffee stains.
  • Placing a bunch of fresh flowers on the table or two or three nicely cut flower stems on the tray will look fantastic. Besides the flowers, scented candles also look awesome, especially during nights.

  • What to do with the left-over Coffee?

    We often end up with left over coffee. Most of us throw it away, wasting it. I used to do the same, but not any longer! Now, I pour all the left over coffee in an ice cube tray and put it in my freezer. If you don’t have ice cube tray then you can freeze the left over coffee in empty coffee capsules till you get an ice-cube tray. I use these coffee ice cubes in cold coffee drinks. It makes it a lot better ice coffee as compared to the watering ice cubes. Making cold coffee is so easy; simply add coffee ice cubes in a glass. Shake milk, cream, sugar and coffee and pour the mixture into the glass. It tastes scrumptious! Give it a try some day; I am sure you are also going to love it!

    Do not want to miss your coffee during long a long drive?

    Do you have to get up early in the morning for leaving to your work place? Well, as far as I am concerned, it takes me around an hour to reach my office. Previously, I used to travel by the subway or catch a bus, but now I drive to my office on my own car.

    Let’s make coffee in car on way to office!

    It is comfortable to go to office by one’s own car. I enjoy my favourite tracks, eat my breakfast while driving, and drink coffee! You must be thinking that I take a thermos with me, right? Well, not at all! I brew coffee in my car. Are you thinking, how I do this? I used an hand held espresso machine and coffee capsules in my car. My friend introduced the portable espresso maker when I visited him last summer. It plugs into the cigarette lighter socket and makes perfect coffee.

    Isn’t it risky to make and drink coffee while driving?

    Albeit there is no probation of eating and drinking while travelling by one’s car, yet I always stop my car for making coffee, in order to avoid any kind of accident. This way I savour my coffee without the fear of risking mine and other’s lives on the road. Do not worry; it does not take long to make coffee in the car when you have coffee capsules with you. You will get your desired coffee in split second. I relish my coffee and then continue driving. This makes the long drink full of fun! By the time I reach my office, there is no sign of long travel on my face. I look fresh and alert – thanks to my coffee capsules and coffee maker!

    Have your tried Ne-Cap Nespresso refill Capsules?

    When I am at home, I use my Nespresso coffee maker; it brews grounded coffee with in a few seconds. I use Ne-Cap Nespresso refill capsules, as they can be filled with any brad of grounded coffee beans after single use with any flavor or variety of coffee I like. If you do not know where you can buy portable espresso maker for your car then you can make coffee from your Nespresso machine and Ne-cap Nespresso refill capsules, and fill you thermos with your favourite coffee and carry it along when you leave your place. You do not necessarily have to wake up too early for making coffee. It takes little time or perhaps you can ask you wife or teenage children to help you.

    Why not keep coffee machine at office?

    You must be wondering, what is the need of taking a thermos of coffee to office, when one can get coffee at office. My office does not serve coffee to the employees; we only have tea or juices. If you can afford buying two Nespresso machines , then you can also keep one at your office. But as I am mostly driving for my office work, so I use the car coffee maker. If your job does not require travelling than you can keep Nespresso coffee maker near you. Surely, you boss will be impressed if you serve him with scrumptious coffee. Soon you office will realize the need of coffee during break hours. Isn’t it a nice way of impressing one’s colleagues and winning new friends at one’s workplace?

    Well you can either fill your grounded coffee in the Ne-Cap Nespresso refill capsules, and store them in your refrigerator, or simply store your coffee in an air tight jar and keep in a cool dry place, away from sunlight, preferably in your fridge. Do not freeze your coffee capsules!
