As part of the Tassimo blogger network I get sent a monthly blogger challenge and September's was one quite close to my heart. Kenco teamed up with Macmillan Cancer Support on the 27th September to stage the World's Largest Coffee morning and Tassimo challenged their bloggers to put on a Tassimo coffee party.
They even sent us a lovely box of goodies to help us. If you're wondering about the tea spoons and sprinkles then they also sent us a link to a brilliantly simple set of instructions for making chocolate spoons.
Now, I don't know if it's just a local thing here, but in the run up to the 27th I suddenly found myself invited to three other coffee mornings (although one used a bit of poetic licence and turned it into a coffee afternoon instead). People were just a bit coffee morning-ed out, so instead of a one off event I decided to have a bit of a month-long ongoing coffee drinking session with friends and made a point of catching up with some people that I haven't seen lately. The baking I've been doing as part of the Great Bloggers Bake Off provided a fantastic accompaniment.
And as not everyone is a coffee drinker, the sprinkles also came in very useful when demonstrating the Tassimo's hot chocolate making abilities.
The amazing September weather also allowed some outdoor coffee drinking too.
If the tales of my Tassimo has inspired you to try one yourself then I'm delighted to tell you about a special offer for Being Mrs C readers. You can now get your hands on a Tassimo T4 machine for just £45 plus p&p. And when you get your machine you also get £20 of free T-DISC credit too. This offer runs from Monday 14 October until either 4th November, or when the machines run out. Full T&Cs are on the Tassimo website.
What are you waiting for coffee addicts???
