The BabyNes

  1. I have a question about the Nespresso coffee machines. I was thinking of getting one of these single serving coffee contraptions for parties and for events with my women’s group. How expensive are those capsules if you buy a lot? It says .60 per cap. That seems pretty high to me. Also does it make American style coffee or just espresso. Thanks Nespresso saleslady.

    The formula machine does seem a little over the top. But I also think the baby cook machines are too much. My girls only ate pureed baby food for a short time before switching to smushed up versions of whatever we are eating. However, if that machine makes your life easier, and you have the money go for it. I have so many infant soothing toys that were only used for a months. Some were pretty pricey. I’m looking at you exer-saucer. The formula machine would get more use than any of those developmental toys.

    1. Hey hey,

      Definitely agree that having children induces us to make (sometimes desperate) purchases that become defunct all too soon. I have one thrifty friend who dutifully buys and sells on Craigslist, but I can’t be bothered.

      Here’s my take on the capsule machine issue: They are great when you’re in a hurry or you’re by yourself. For crowds, it’s fun but definitely not economical. As far as which one, the Nespresso is indeed for purists. No Apple Pie flavored cappuccino. They have plenty of varieties, but they are all plain coffee and are either espresso or lungo, which brews a larger cup of slightly milder coffee, but still has a crema on top. Keurig’s are cheaper on the front end and give you lots more options in terms of what you are brewing up, but it’s pretty much the same price as far as the capsules and the quality of the machine itself is clearly inferior. Mine broke after 6 months.

      Planning to make your brisket this week. I’ll let you know how it turns out!
