Welcome to the new year Dearest Darlingest Readers! I thought that I'd start the year with a real bang and a treat-and possibly something to help ease you back into working life. I'm giving away the new Philips Saeco Intelia coffee machine worth $999 plus a couple of extra goodies to give you the "Italian coffee experience!"
The Saeco Intelia Class is the first fully automatic espresso machine for home use to be honoured with an in-cup quality label, certified by Centro Studi Assaggiatori Italian Tasters (the Italian "sensory analysis" consultancy company). This is due to a careful and dedicated internal process focused on respecting sensory parameters designed to achieve Espresso Perfetto the perfect espresso by sight, smell and by taste. The machine is self-explanatory with colour-coded icons and it automatically detects the type of coffee beans and grinds the perfect amount of coffee. The ceramic grinder grinds at low temperature so that you don't risk overheating the beans.
Thanks to Philips, one lucky Not Quite Nigella readers will win the following:
The new Philips Saeco Intelia (RRP: $999) which has just launched in Australia
1 kg Philips Saeco coffee beans
A barista crash course by the Coffee Gang for one Sydney-based winner + guest
All worth $1,225!
For a chance to win all you have to do is tell me someone famous that you would like to invite to your place for a cup of coffee and why! Simply add your answer as a comment to the story. The competition ends at midnight AEST on the 4th of February, 2012. You can enter this competition once daily and it is open to anyone within Australia (although the barista course is only available in Sydney and you will need to make your own way there).
The winners is: Craig S. of NSW!*
Best of luck!
Lots of love,
