      Disadvantages

      Try it!

      I was feeling horrible from the moment I woke up this morning... My baby girl wasn't enjoying her day as well. So it was even tougher for me... I felt so sleepy, unhappy, lack of energy... Couldn't do anything. Wanted to drink a cup of coffee but appeared that boyfriend finished milk yesterday evening.... Another disappointment.... And a shop is so far away... I don't have energy to go there by foot. Checked all the cupboards in the kitchen hoping to find something that would make me feel at least a little bit better. And found a sample from Carte Noire: 2 sachets for making Cappuccino. I am not very fond of Cappuccinos but that was the best thing I found.

      MY EXPERIENCE

      After I have boiled water I took my favourite cup and wanted quickly make a cup of cappuccino. But then noticed those instructions on packaging.... Was surprised and didn't understand why somebody made it so complicated. Anyway, as I wasn't in a hurry (ant was having a BAD day...) I decided to make my cappuccino according to the instructions. I took one more cup and emptied sachets into them. Into the cup with milky froth I added 150 ml of hot water (when you have a baby it's so easy to measure a necessary amount of water!). And was shocked because the mix started fizzing and bubbling! I didn't expect to hear any of those sounds so it was such a fun! And the mix became creamy foam! I started thinking that this Cappuccino may be good! Then I added 30 ml of hot water into the cup with coffee which smelled really good. The last step - I poured expresso into the milky froth, grated some dark chocolate on top and was ready to try it!

      My little girl was sleeping so I took my cup into the sitting room, sat comfortably and enjoyed the Carte Noire Cappuccino. Yes, I enjoyed every sip of it! It was quite strong and really tasted like expresso and that milky froth softened the taste. This Cappuccino definitely made my day better. I felt energy coming back to me and didn't feel being sleepy at all... Probably that's the expresso... I started feeling much better - was really surprised. It's a pity I had only one portion - that sample. Tonight we are going shopping and I'll buy 2 boxes! Or maybe more.... Just in case...

      I also liked that cappuccino making process: milky froth into one cup, then expresso, then you add expresso to milky froth..... Because you take the time to make yourself (or somebody else) a cup of cappuccino. And it is so entertaining! You not just pour water inter a cup - you make a cup of Cappuccino! That's different! And those spits and fizzes as you make a frothy mix are fun! I enjoyed every minute of making this cup of Cappuccino and drinking it. I was skeptical (what can you be excited about making a cup of cappuccino????) but it was really different experience and taste.

      Though I think you could actually put milky froth and coffee powder into one cup. Taste would be the same but you would loose half of the pleasure!

      OVERALL

      I think Carte Noire Cappuccino is a wonderful product. And I am the person who didn't like cappuccinos at all now thinking how many boxes to buy.... This one is really different.

      Definitely give 5 out of 5!!!

      You really need to try this one!!! But if You don't believe and want to try it first, order a free sample from Carte Noire website: http://www.cartenoire.co.uk/cartenoire/page/the-range/635
