happy holidays 2012 – nespresso latissima plus giveaway

For the grand finale of our holiday giveaways this week, we have a fantastic prize courtesy of the good people at Nespresso.  If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you’ve seen me go from disliking coffee in any form but ice cream, to liking it on occasion, to liking iced coffee to now, when I drink it most days.  A few months ago I decided to wave the white flag and get an espresso maker.  (The fact that affogato is one of my favorite desserts ever definitely played a huge role in this decision.)  Anyway, I did lots of product research, talked to friends about what they had, and read enough reviews to make my eyes cross.  I ended up getting a Nespresso Citiz and it has been perfect for my needs.  I really love it.  BUT…the people at Nespresso are so awesome, they are offering an even better model than what I have – the Latissima Plus.  Fancy!  A few specs about the machine from the makers:

In addition to its quick start up time and auto-off functions for energy efficiency, this machine boasts a built-in milk frother and can make perfectly portioned espressos, cappuccinos and lattes at the touch of a button.  This machine also comes in 4 elegant colors (Silky White, Ice Silver, Passion Red and Midnight Blue) to match every style and personality.  It is valued at $399.

We are giving away a Nespresso Latissima Plus to one lucky winner!  To enter, leave a comment on THIS POST and tell me how you like your coffee or espresso.  Or, if you don’t drink it but want to gift this to someone else, who would you give it to?

The Rules: One entry per person.  Commenting will open Friday, December 21 at 4:45 am EST and close on Monday, December 24 at 10:00 pm EST.  Entries that do not follow the entry requirements will not be considered.  One winner will be selected at random and contacted via email by early next week.  Good luck!
