These Go Up To 11 - une femme d'un certain âge

These Go Up To 11

Attention Nespresso drinkers…this new limited edition is 11/10, both in intensity and in flavor. In this femme’s humble opinion, this is one of the best limited editions in quite a while. As described on the website:

NAPOLI is a bold and assertive with a syrupy body and a long lasting finish, this blend of Arabicas from South America, Africa and Asia with a hint of Robusta releases fine smoky notes. Its aromatic woodiness is lightly scented with dry black tea leaf nuances. 

This week was 11/10 in intensity too, very busy at work. We’re ramping up for some very big projects so anticipate this pace will not ease up anytime soon.

Jeune homme seems to be doing quite well in the new school and we are so relieved. The staff is very communicative, and tell us that he fits in, seems to be happy to be there and has been initiating social interactions with classmates. (In his previous school, all of the other kids functioned at a much higher level, and he was pretty isolated.) He seems to come home happy and tired.

More 11/10 fun.

Bon weekend!

    Excellent news about your son. May it continue to get better and better for him, and become something he looks forward to with joy. Much like this coffee likely is for you!

    Don’t have a Nespresso machine. But I love my coffee. So very happy about your son. I know how great that must make you feel. Hope he continues to thrive there.

    As much as we savour good coffee, it is even more satisfying to see our children thrive in a new environment. Very happy to hear this news and thank you for sharing it.

    Nigel Tuffnel is a god! ;-P
    I must be the only person left that makes her own coffee without a fancy machine. I even have a tiny percolator to make my beloved cafe Cubano.
    You must be relieved that your son is doing well at his new school. Makes me pretty happy, too. Education has come a long way since the days when they told parents, like mine, that we CP’ers would do best in an institution. I hope he continues to thrive in his new environment!

    Great news about Jeune homme! What a relief it must be seeing his tire, happy face at the end of the day.
