During my trip to Denver last week I got to visit and take a tour of the Allegro Coffee Headquarters in Thornton, Colorado. It was so great! I was very familiar with their products as I have used them for years. I love their coffees, teas, and spices and over the years have tried quite a multitude of their offerings. They have a partnership with Whole Foods, so they are ‘big time’ in that they supply to Whole Foods all over the nation. That is a LOT of coffee, tea, and spices! I was incredibly impressed with their facility, the lovely cafe they have in the building, and the cheerful disposition of all the employees there.
Here are my pictures from my little tour 🙂
I had such a blast and then got a GREAT chai tea latte on my way out plus 4 boxes of tea! Thanks bitesizedtwinkie for the Allegro love!
On part of my lunch break I walked up to Bloomingdales Home for some espresso pods. I recently found the joy of owning a Nespresso machine and I am IN LOVE with it. Here are some photos from my lunchtime ‘Nespresso errand” in Downtown Chicago.
Sur La Table has the espresso pods for these machines too so if you’d like to check it out and do not have a Nespresso Boutique in your city head there!
Also today I learned how to make a ‘Burnt Marshmellow’ Cappuccino curteousy of Walter at the N.B.

One pod Ciocattino

Sugar/Stevia to taste
Still are not convinced – Once you buy one of these machines your life turns into this:
I’ve coined myself and the N.B. associates as the Bloomingdales Coffee Murder Crew – it hasn’t caught on yet…. YET.
