Capture the Cup: The America’s Cup Races and Nespresso

September 5th, 2013 by katie

The 34th America’s Cup Final race begins September 7th and I’ll be watching.  I was lucky enough to visit San Francisco recently to watch the teams race in the Louis Vuitton Cup Finals and it is truly an amazing sport.  Nespresso was named the official coffee of the America’s cup and the Nespresso Bloggers got a chance to sample some of their Race inspired recipes at the new San Francisco Nespresso Boutique.  If you’ve never heard of the America’s Cup I would encourage you to check out their YouTube channel.

We also had the truly transformative experience of sailing an extreme 40 catamaran.  Transformative because while it first transformed me into this:

Good looking group, huh?  I then experienced a truly shocking transformation.  I actually enjoyed myself.  On a boat.  I suffer from some pretty severe motion sickness on the water yet gliding along at 22 knots under the sun was both exhilarating and strangely peaceful.

Overall we had an amazing time in the America’s Cup Park, watching the teams prepare and race.  Getting close ups of the luxury yachts from around the world made me question my career choices a bit.

How amazing would it be to just sail away in one of those??

We spent a full day on the water, watching the races and sailing but of course we made time for a quick stop at the Nespresso Boutique as well.

This beauty is the Fog, a warm concoction of honey, ginger, Nespresso and and foam.   The perfect warm-up drink after a day on the bay watching the boats maneuver the course.  Being a Nespresso blogger has given me an appreciation for so many new things in addition to the Grand Cru coffees.  We don’t always stop to consider and savor the quality of our experiences. From cruising the waves on a 40 ft catamaran to the color and aroma of that first cup in the morning every experience deserves to be captured.  What is your moment to be captured today?

    healthy relationship and all are quite acceptable.
    The main reason of preference is that you don’t need to go in public to enjoy all these.

    Here are some insightful quotes I like…
    Lemme know iif you like them:

    “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”

    “I, at any rate, am convinced that He (God) doesn’t throw dice.”

    “The significant matter is not to stop questioning; interest has its own reason for existing.”

    “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I am not certain about the universe.”

    “Falling in love is not at all the most dumb thing that people do — but gravitation cannot be held responsible for it.”

    “The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious.

    “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything

    “Strive not to become a man of success, but rather attempt
    to become a man of worth”

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to tell someone!

About chaos

cha·os -noun 1. a condition or place of great disorder or confusion. My chaotic kitchen is the result of three kids, two adults, dog, cat, and fish, a food obsession, a wine drinking hobby, and too few hours in the day. Between trying to feed a family of five healthy, happy meals, watching my weight, saving my pennies, and staying partially sane I have picked up a few tricks along the way. So here they are: the very best tips, tricks, and recipes from my chaotic kitchen-to yours!
