Less work, more summer – and always good coffee (+giveaway)

Sponsored collaboration with Slurp

 

I feel like every year I say the same thing: I love summer. I love the green leaves and flowers everywhere. I love the endless sunlight and the light feeling I get. I love how everything comes to life.

I’m thinking of a reason not to repeat myself, but I can’t think of any. Because the feeling comes back, every year, just as strong. I smile. I feel as if there’s more time (well, there is, because of the light and the energy it gives me).  I feel like I can go and take a break outside, have a nice picnic without timing it. That actually feels like the exact thing I should be doing.

And I know I’m lucky for being able to do that, but at the same time I’ve decided to be my own boss and that’s not just sunshine and rainbows.

But still – Summer is the perfect season to relax a little. To look back at winter, fall and spring and cut some slack.

Espro Travel Press – fresh coffee on the go

And what better way than a picnic with some good, fresh coffee? You know it – I’m drinking good coffee even on a picnic. Life is too short for bad coffee and all that.

Besides – coffee outdoors? Oh boy. It tastes even better, just like food does. Drinking my coffee on a blanket, watching the sky and the trees and our beautiful nature – I’m reminded of all the lovely mornings on a summer cottage and I feel like I’m on a holiday. Even for just a sip of a moment.

On my first post with Slurp I talked about making those coffee moments special with coffee subscription. But did you know that Slurp also sells coffee equipment? Well, in this post I’m introducing Espro Travel Press, which upgrades your picnic take away coffees. You can actually make coffee in just a few minutes, fresh.

Espro Travel Press is actually awarded the product of the year by Specialty Coffee Association of America.

 

How Espro Travel Press works

What’s awesome about Espro Travel Press is that it makes delicious coffee and keeps it warm and fresh. You can make French press type of coffee, filter coffee or tea with it.

It’s very simple. You simply throw in the coffee and some hot water, push the filter in and withing a few minutes your coffee is ready. The brewing of the coffee stops once the plunger is pressed down, so you don’t have to worry about the coffee grounds on the bottom.

I’ll admit that I was a bit skeptical about this thing – but after trying it and tasting the coffee made with it, I’m sold. It’s great. There’s no going back to regular coffee brought on a thermos to a picnic. My picnics suddenly got even better. 

If you have a problem with your coffee turning cold – this could be your solution. It keeps it hot so you can enjoy hot coffee all throughout the afternoon.

    Tää Espro Travel Press kuulostaa tosi hyvältä! Olisi varmasti huippu vaihtoehto tavalliselle termoskahville. Sluprsin valikoima näyttää myös tosi houkuttelevalta!
    Ihanat kesätunnelmat kuvissa!
