Mornings With illy Espresso

Does anyone else go to bed excited for their morning espresso or coffee?! It’s the first thing I do to get my day started and it wouldn’t feel complete without it! I got this illy espresso machine a month or so ago and it’s safe to say I’m addicted. It brews really hot (a must for me) and it’s fast! illy reminds me of living in Chicago, I would always go to a shop in the Loop that served it. So yummy!

In my opinion, the best feature is the ‘My illy Machine’ app! You can schedule when you want your coffee made (I do 7am M-F!) so it’s waiting for you when you get out of bed. Just don’t forget to put your mug there like I did once 😉 You can also adjust the temperature and size of the cup from the app. I keep the machine in my office since I check email first thing in the morning, and spend most of my afternoons in there. There’s nothing better than walking into your office with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee! Also, I found the cute canisters at West Elm to keep my capsules in.

This machine measures capsule usage and will automatically place an order from Amazon when you run low, so you never run out. All you have to do is enable the Amazon Dash Replenishment Service!

My old espresso machine didn’t have the option to make coffee and this one does which is pretty amazing.

You can order the machine here!
