Who am I to give coffee maker ratings!
by Ong Li Mei
An Unlikely "good" coffee maker
It is this headline that brought back so many memories (more on that later). To state the fact, I am not much of a coffee drinker, but I am a follower on ratings, guide and stuff like that.
Wanna buy a book, read a review or buy some consumer goods, look at guru's site reviews. So, I understand by the meaning of not allowing ratings and numbers to musk or even destroy the coffee drinking experience.
I had such a wonderful experience enjoying coffee in Japan, Hakone last winter that it was one of the best coffee that I had!
It is neither a gourmet coffee nor it is dispensed from some branded coffee shops, i.e. Starbucks. It is a Nescafe and it comes from a vending machine.
It is the culmination of many factors that make the coffee experience great. My hubby was with me, we are on a great holiday, the weather was cold and the warm cuppa from Nescafe just warm your heart...
We were there on a small hill, overlooking Hakone bay, warm cups of Nescafe in our hands, enjoying the scenery, chatting about fun stuff.
The company, the environment really makes one soak up the experience. So, to me "that" coffee maker is the vending machine and my best coffee was the Nescafe drunk from that vending machine...
