I mean these days I’ll admit that I rarely pay for coffee thanks to a never-ending supply from Nespresso (I know, I know SO grateful!), but I will jump at any opportunity to get some free brew.

Let’s just say I was a nightmare to my previous employer when they installed a Nespresso machine…

That’s probably because I do.

When Nespresso’s newest lungo grand cru, Envivo Lungo, arrived at my door I could tell I had stirred up a bit of jealousy amongst my building management. I appear to be a coffee hoarder. Likely because I am a coffee hoarder.

So clearly I have some making up to do.

Starting this Thursday June 23 until Sunday June 26th the Nespresso Booth will be serving up their newest Envivo Lungo from 12:00-4:00 PM and Arpeggio Decaffeinato from 6:00-10:00 PM. Oh and free canapes too! Can I get a hellllll yeah?!

But I didn’t want those of you not in Toronto to feel left out. So I made you this Iced Horchata Latte mix, which I proceeded to down in 2 days (remember that coffee problem I had?).

I can’t promise you free coffee, but I can promise you an incredible iced latte that tastes like heaven in a cup. Forgive me?
