Try Our New Nespresso Machine! 29 Nov 2016, 2:06 pm
We absolutely love coffee here at our Kennebunkport inn and our guests love it too (as do George and Danny, see above)! Waking up to a piping hot cup of freshly brewed coffee or espresso is one of life’s most simple and wonderful and joys; and mornings just got a little more joyful here at the inn with our new Nespresso machine!
This incredible little machine can do it all! No matter what your favorite drink is, you can have it at Captain Lord. And who knows, maybe George and Danny will join you for a cup or two!
Here’s a taste of what the Nespresso machine can make… choose your favorite!
For coffee lovers looking for the rich taste of espresso without an overpowering strong coffee taste, a latte is perfect for you! Enjoy this espresso drink with steamed milk. (Lattes are milkier than cappuccinos.)
Indulge in a cappuccino made with double espresso, hot milk and steamed foam. Add some cinnamon on top for an extra treat!
For the no-nonsense coffee lover who loves the pure flavor of espresso, a straight espresso shot or two will give you the caffeine jolt you need to start your day!
You don’t even have to be a coffee lover to enjoy the delights of the Nespresso machine. Let it make you a frothy cup of hot chocolate to sip slowly on cool mornings or chilly nights.
Keep it simple with a delectable cup of hot coffee. Add milk, cream, sugar, or even a dollop of whip cream for a fancier fix.
Want to savor a hot drink and get the taste of coffee without the caffeine? The Nespresso can brew you a cup of decaf as well!
Stacia Litchfield 26 Oct 2016, 10:39 am
Bev and Rick’s youngest daughter Stacia recently moved from Atlanta back to Maine and is helping out at the inn. They are delighted to have an extra pair of hands. She has been cooking some mornings, serving breakfast five mornings a week as well as doing laundry.
She is looking forward to helping at the Captain Lord Mansion’s extravagant New Year Eve dinner party. We’ve already been trying her dessert ideas!
Stacia said, “I am thrilled to be back in Maine and helping out Mom and Dad at the inn. I’m helping in the kitchen and laundry and loving the interaction with all the guests.”
This winter she will help Bev with the several redecorating things scheduled. Stacia is like her mom, a very talented seamstress; so, she’ll help sew new window treatments and help with some painting and wallpapering.
We are delighted to have Stacia helping us at the inn; maybe she’ll discover this is her calling?
