Why coffee matters this Mother’s Day

Tipico coffee

Mother’s Day is a special occasion that calls for a celebration of the unparalleled bond between a mother and her children. While flowers and heartfelt messages are traditional gifts, why not surprise her with an exceptional coffee experience at home this year? Coffee, after all, is more than just a beverage; it’s a moment of pleasure that many mothers cherish in their daily ritual. Mitch Monaghan, Nespresso Coffee Ambassador, shares invaluable insights on how to elevate this daily coffee ritual, particularly on Mother’s Day. When buying a coffee machine to gift your mother, the paramount concern should be whether it can produce quality-tasting coffee. According to Monaghan, the perfect cup starts with the machine’s capability to deliver consistently good coffee, which is where a coffee capsule machine, like Nespresso’s Vertuo Pop, shines. It does away with the intricacies of coffee making, ensuring every cup is a perfect brew. The use of sustainably sourced Nespresso coffee, sealed in recyclable aluminium capsules, further guarantees that each cup is fresh and full of aroma. Ease of use is another critical factor. A machine that operates at the touch of a button and offers various cup sizes can adapt to any coffee preference your mother might have throughout the day. For those mothers who appreciate a hands-off approach in the kitchen without compromising on the quality of their coffee, the Vertuo Lattissima could be the ideal choice, handling milk preparation seamlessly. For the environmentally conscious mother, the sustainability of the coffee machine is a significant consideration. Nespresso’s precision design… Read More

Treat mum to a Mother’s Day lunch at the refurbished Woollahra Hotel

The Woollahra Hotel,

After undergoing a significant refurbishment, the iconic Woollahra Hotel is well and truly back in business and welcoming guests to enjoy the new look and a refreshed culinary experience. The hotel’s redesign boasts a thoughtful approach to preserving the original Art Deco architecture and more recent European modernism adaptations to celebrate the historical value while adding a contemporary twist.  With new spaces, come new culinary experiences while still honouring the Woollahra Hotel’s historical roots. It’s nice to see the hotel’s history still intact – there’s something very ‘Gatsby’ about this beautiful establishment. As you enter the hotel’s newly renovated Front Bar, you’ll want to pull up a chair, order a cocktail from the extensive cocktail list and enjoy the new surroundings – a relaxed and welcoming space dedicated to championing the classic pub experience. After a relaxing tipple at the Front Bar, it will be time to make your way upstairs for a culinary feast of flavours with an Asian twist. Be prepared to be impressed. The extraordinarily talented chef, Jordan Muhamad (ex-Rock Pool, Spice Temple, Chin Chin) has led the redesign of the food offering Upstairs at the Woollahra Hotel.

You can taste the love in chef Muhamad’s dishes and it’s just… Read More
