Dear NESCAFÉ Memento,
We met almost a week ago today. I didn’t know what I was in for when you arrived on my doorstep. Your pretty wrapping was simple yet, drew me to you. You, NESCAFÉ® Memento™, are a delicious single-serve instant coffee that offers the coffeehouse experience in one convenient stick pack. It was too late to get to know you that evening, but we made plans for the next morning. Oh yes, you would be my companion after a late evening working away on overdue posts, planning a meal, attempting to find a Rosca de Reyes recipe I could actually make and attempting to kick my resolutions into gear (did I mention I haven’t slept since 2007?).
When I awoke, I knew I was ready. I dragged myself off of bed and straight to you…and for a brief moment I panicked. I thought, there was no possible way all I had to do was add water. Also, at 100 calories per cup and mere cents per packet, NESCAFÉ Memento won’t impact my waistline or my wallet. Clearly something like that couldn’t quench my need, my desire for a frothy sip of a coffee shop beverage.
Oh Nescafe, how wrong you proved me. I added some piping hot water to my waiting cup and then I went for you. As I poured you in, I noticed the gorgeous froth begin to form. I stirred my spoon around, smelling that exquisite coffee and latte scent. I just couldn’t wait anymore. I closed my eyes, and drew the cup to my lips…and took my first sip.
My tastebuds jumped for joy and my eyes suddenly awakened. You revived me…and I enjoyed you in that early morning silence all by myself. I have two problems now, One: which flavor should I have next time: Caramel Latte, Mocha or Cappuccino? And two: where should I hide you from my husband. NESCAFÉ Memento, I think this is the beginning of an epic love story.
