Friends don their favorite green outfits, and the smell of freshly baked soda bread fills the air. St. Patrick’s Day is upon us and on this cheerful holiday, it’s always fun to see the vast array of celebrations that take place around my hometown, and the assortment of green foods and traditional Irish meals that seem to pop up at local restaurants and grocery stores. But if I’m really being honest, my favorite St. Patrick’s Day ritual takes place at home in my kitchen, with a little help from my Bosch Coffee Machine.
For my St. Patrick’s Day celebration, I’m thinking beyond green beer and traditional Irish stews, and trading them for my favorite Irish treat: Irish Coffee. This twist on the average brew is the definition of delectable, and I’m certainly never one to pass up an excuse to drink more coffee—especially when all it takes is the push of a button.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of starting your day with a cup of coffee from the Bosch Coffee Machine, you’re certainly in for a treat. This built-in coffee machine fits neatly into your kitchen in, taking up just slightly less space than our Bosch wall ovens. With a spacious 2.4 liter refillable water tank, no water lines are needed, and no slide out rails or difficult installation required. It’s quite easy to go from install to enjoying a fresh cup of coffee in mere minutes.
But perhaps my favorite feature of the Bosch Coffee Machine is just how easy it is to quickly tailor a cup of coffee to you—or your friends—liking. From temperature preferences to frothy lattes or a shot of espresso, the possibilities of the Bosch Coffee Machine are endless. And, thanks to the Home Connect app, you can tell the Bosch Coffee Machine to brew your coffee from your mobile phone or tablet, making it easy to place your coffee order from any room within your home. What’s more, the brewing time for every coffee beverage is only 15 seconds! At these speeds, this machine is like having your very own speedy Brewmaster who can recreate your favorite coffee order faster than you can say “Leprechaun.”
This quick brewing time and high quality of each cup of coffee crafted by the Bosch Coffee Machine comes by way of the ceramic disks in our grinding system. Unlike traditional metal disks, ceramic disks never dull, so your beans will be ground quickly and consistently every time, insuring they retain their rich and bold flavor. And, because these blades are so precise, your machine will never be clogged by lingering coffee grounds. The same is true of our milk dispensers. With a self-cleaning system designed to clear the pipes after every frothy pour, you can rest assured that all your cappuccinos, lattes, and macchiatos will be as perfect as the first pour.
So, if you’re looking for to start a new St. Patrick’s Day tradition in your home, look no further than your Bosch Coffee Machine and try this simple idea: Invite a few friends over and set the mood with a green-with-envy dinner of corned beef and cabbage steamed to perfection in the Steam Convection Oven. As dinner nears its end, pass your tablet around and ask your guests to place their order for an after dinner coffee aperitif. To make the perfect Irish Coffee, all you have to do is supply the whiskey and the perfect mug. Pour your whiskey of choice into the bottom of the glass, then brew your favorite latte for the perfect layered effect. Happy St. Patrick’s Day indeed!
