Admit it: Making your morning espresso is more of a chore than a charm.

But since we discovered Nespresso, who have recently opened a gorgeously sleek and Euro store downtown, mornings are worth waking up for.

We love the sleek "Le Cube" machine in titanium ($349) and the store's tasting bar that helps you select from a wide range of espressos with tasting notes ranging from cocoa to lemon.

Pop in a pod, press a button, and voila, perfect espresso every time.

Now if only getting dressed were that simple.
