Beautiful Inside-Out by Shopabout
E-commerce in Southeast Asia is becoming a huge market. In Singapore, there is a young startup in Singapore called ShopAbout.sg, which aims to help traditional brick-and-mortar businesses catch the e-commerce wave and expand their reach. I am always very supportive of entrepreneurs because it is not easy to start up a business. So when ShopAbout approached me to do a product review, I agreed.
The kind folks from Shopabout sponsored me a Nescafe Dolce Gusto Genio which I love it lah. Because you can make hot or cold drinks from the machine. It has a professional-level 15-bar pressure system which helps to ensure that every cup is perfect with a foamy froth, rich créma and luxurious flavor. And the exclusive Thermoblock technology heats the water fresh every time, in less than one minute, so making a cup of coffee is very fast.
The machine has a customizable scroll control which puts you in charge, so that you can customize your coffee’s strength and mixture. What I love about best is its sleek design because I don’t have a lot of counter space at home, and this one I can easily fix it at a small corner of the house. Not too bad.
I have tried making coffee using a cafe’s espresso machine and to manually froth the steamed milk is an art which takes skill and time. But every morning, I always overslept, so I don’t have time to go and touch the cup and feel if my milk is ready anot. LOL! Here, the water is heated automatically within one minute so drinks are really quick to make.
Of course not everything is good lah, if you are having a party at home, and need to make many cups of coffee, this one will take longer because it can only make a drink at a time.
