Nespresso latissiam Pro

Capsulated coffee machines have been hitting the high street shops of late, but what if you want the best of the best of the best? DeLonghi and Nespresso have teamed up to show just what is possible with a new Lattissima Pro, built for people who really love a good cup of coffee but also want a machine that has quality and style set at its for-front.

Lattissima-Pro

A new machine designed for the Nespresso range of pods, the Lattissima Pro is the new model and the most premium machine in the Nespresso range of coffee pod machines.
The water tank in the Lattissima Pro holds more water than the previous generation, which potentially translates into more cups of coffee.  Something that is different, however, is the connection port for the milk frothing system, which not only allows for the milk frother to be plugged in, but when unplugged, can also support an included hot water spout, which will dispense hot water instead of textured milk.

Controls for the machine are handled through a light-up tactile button panel, which includes three espresso varieties: ristretto, espresso, and lungo, as well as two milk-based coffee styles, letting you make cappuccino and a latte macchiato.  A hot milk option is also available, as is one for hot water when the water spout is plugged in.
Nespresso have really gone to town on making this your kitchen centre piece as the white light that is built into the Nespresso unit, lighting up the glass or cup, and the foldable drip tray

If the tech behind this gadget wasn’t enough then the look will add to that wow factor as it is encased in a brushed aluminium casing, and sporting a big water tank capable of making several cups of coffee, the machine is pretty much geared at the Nespresso lover who is going for the most convenient cup they possibly can have, with an automatic milk preparation system capable of creating a cappuccino or latte macchiato with only one button pressed.
To me this machine is like having my very own Barista but with out the £3.25 a cup price tag you would expect to pay in places like Starbucks, Costa Coffee or Caffe Nero.
Overall this is a quality, stylish machine built to last and yet will deliver the most professional cup of coffee in your home with only a push of a button.
Okay it may not be one of the cheapest machines on the retail market, but if like me, you love your coffee then only after a few cups this machine would have paid for itself compared to high street coffee house prices that I loth to pay.

Foods That Keep You Awake

If you are having trouble falling or staying asleep at night, your diet could be to blame. Steer clear of these top sleep saboteurs and you should be getting a good nights rest in no time.

Caffeine
You know that caffeine will keep you wide-awake, but what you may not realise? Coffee and soda aren't the only culprits. Some over the counter medicines contain caffeine, too, as do many teas. If you are caffeine sensitive, start opting for decaf and checking the labels of any meds you are planning to take about eight hours before bedtime.

Alcohol
A glass of wine might sound like it will help you relax and fall asleep, but studies have actually found that alcohol causes frequent waking at night. See, while booze may help you drift off, it also reduces REM sleep and without it, you will not feel like you have logged any shuteye at all. So stick to just one glass no more than one to two hours before bed to avoid a rocky night.

Drinking-water

Fluids
Water is great for weight loss and staying healthy but can have the unfortunate side effect of waking you up for middle of the night bathroom breaks and not only do 2 a.m. toilet runs interrupt your sleep cycle, but they can also cut into your REM sleep. Try to avoid drinking fluids 60-90 minutes before your usual bedtime to make sure you actually spend all night in bed.

pickled

Aged and Fermented Foods
Tyramine, an amino acid found in aged and fermented foods, stimulates the brain and could keep you up at night as a result. Aged cheese, smoked fish, and cured meats all contain it, so if you must have a cheesy snack before bedtime, stick to the fresh stuff, like mozzarella.

tomatoes

Tomato Based Products
Anything with a lot of acid can cause heartburn and discomfort during the night and that includes tomato based foods and spicy dishes. To prevent tossing and turning, stay away from these types of foods at least three hours before you hit the sack.
