Breville's Month-long Festival Celebrates Our Love Affair with Coffee

by - Wednesday, September 09, 2020

There's no denying that coffee has been playing a bigger part in my life lately thanks to the current isolated set-up that we are facing. Whether I need to procaffeinate or a little pick-me-up to ward off the bad vibes, a kick of caffeine will always do the trick. I may miss my usual go-to warm cup from my fave coffee shops, but I'm thrilled by the idea that I can be my own barista at home – all thanks to my Breville Barista Express Coffee Machine at home
