Nescafe Gold Blend Barista Machine Make Coffee Like A Barista (Review)

Hola! So if you have been following me on my social media, you would noticed I've been sharing (or showing off) my new toy a lot recently. So sorry for the spam, but I can't help it! It was so much fun trying out the different cafe style coffee Nescafe Gold Blend Barista could make. And since there are many requests or question on the machine, I might as well share my verdict here. Well, this post is especially for you folks! Frankly, life is so much easier and fun after owning the Nescafe Gold Blend Barista machine. I'm not very much a morning person, hence the machine practically saves me from my morning rush to grab a quick cuppa. On top of that, beside black coffee, the machine could also churn cappuccino and latte machiato. Nescafe Gold Blend Barista machine is the only coffee machine you need to brew cafe quality coffee at home!
