Vittoria’s Piccolo Machine Is Just The Ticket For An At-Home Coffee

As I wake up each day, my first thought is to make a coffee and shake myself free from a groggy slumber. It’s a ritual I’ve long enjoyed and while it began with a cappuccino with a healthy spray of chocolate, it’s now a flat white and more recently a soy flat.

During the COVID-19 isolation period, I was never more grateful to have a coffee machine at home to satisfy my love for a well made coffee. Over the years, I’ve tried so many different ways to make coffee at home from the plunger, which seemed a revelation at the time, hard as that is to believe now, to the Italian-style stainless steel stove top moka pot which makes a rich coffee and a whole lot of mess, too.

Then, the coffee pod was invented and life instantly changed for those of us who get a rush for coffee every morning and a headache if we don’t meet our caffeine needs. Recently, the Vittoria’s Piccolo Machine became a welcome entry into our kitchen.

This smart unit makes the best coffee and I love the fact that it comes from a third-generation family-owned company.

The Café At Home kit is a budget friendly option for those who want to create café-quality espresso coffee at home especially when you also use the milk frothing machine. The machine has a 1 litre removable water tank and it’s incredibly compact and looks smart in the kitchen.

Sleek and stylish, the design is very simple and you don’t need to read a manual to use it. Plus there’s plenty of different types of coffee you can buy from espresso pods to decaffeinated types.
