Nutella and Coffee

My two new obsessions.

The Nutella I've managed to get a hold of now that I'm home, but the coffee is proving to be more difficult. My drip maker is no longer curing my fix, and a before work trip to the closest neighborhood coffee shop yesterday was highly disappointing, so I am left in a quandry of what to do.

My frugal nature will not allow me a trip to Starbuck's every morning, plus I'd like to feel a little bit more chic than that anyway. So do I spring for an espresso/one cup maker, like our hosts in Switzerland had? The coffee was delicious every morning, and incredibly easy to make. I was in awe of their machine, the little coffee pods, everything about it. But, it will surely be expensive. Or do I just suck it up and force my tastebuds to once again wrap around my normal Americano way?

Dear friends, I ask you - what is a Babe on a Budget with uncurable epicurean tastes to do?

Get some nice instant coffee.

Actually I got one of those espresso pod things which isn't bad - and a friend gave me a french press which is nice too.
