So This past weekend we went to the Nespresso shop to get some more of our favorite Arpeggio purple pods. On display however was some fancy box below:
Not knowing anything about the box and seduced purely by its packaging, I added this to our order. (Way to go Nespresso marketing!)
Then I heard to sales people all ooh and aah about how wonderful it was.
Apparently it's made from some super rare bean that's like twice the size as a normal coffee bean and produces very little fruit. They kept mumbling the name super fast. I still can't say the name.
Oops. We already paid for it. I had no idea how much it was. But I did know it was going to be more expensive as everyone drooled about it. Shopping 101 mistake, buying without a price.. Which turned out not to be a mistake at all!
I tried it this morning. My goodness, it is super duper good! While I can't say the name of them, my husband and I have dubbed these as the "nespresso magic beans."
They are really tasty. I finally looked up how much... $2 a pod instead of $0.70! Oh. I guess I better squander my one box away.
Here's nespressos info on the magic beans http://www.nespresso.com/us/en/product/maragogype-coffee
I recommend you go try these magic beans. They are very tasty. Sweet. Nice flavor. Still much cheaper than starbucks! Hope you enjoyed my review of the marogogype beans.
PS- it's pronounced mare-ah-go-jip-ay. And I did not get paid for this post... But I'll some accept Maragogype beans for my kind review, Nespresso! I
