The holidays are one of my favorite times of the year. I love getting together with my family and friends and talking about events that have happened in our lives and reminiscing about things we have experienced throughout the years. At Christmas we normally only have one get together but this year was a little more crazy because we actually had three different parties all within a 3 day time span. To make things less stressful on the host, at our family gatherings everyone normally brings a side dish, dessert or drinks. This year I was in charge of the beverages and boy was my family in for a treat with the Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System.
The Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System isn’t just your ordinary beverage system because it delivers both hot and cold drinks with just the touch of a button.
I received the system about a week before the party and honestly didn’t have a chance to check it out beforehand. I was a little worried that it would be complicated to set up but it was not at all. In fact it was so simple we had it up and running within a few minutes. The only steps that need to be taken before you start making your drinks is to fill the tank on the top of the system with clean purified or filtered water. The machine is sterilized at the factory but they recommend that you run a few cups of water through both the cold and hot cycles before you make your first drinks.
The Esio has a wide variety of drink options that include many name brands like Country Time, V8 Splash Juice Drinks, Crystal Light and Maxwell House just to name a few. The e-packs that are used with the Esio are very simple to use you just take off the foil cover on the top of the pump and place it into the special slot on the Esio. Once your done using one e-pack you replace it with another flavor without any taste cross over from the other. These E-packs can be reused until they are empty and and because it self-seals it will last for up to a year without any refrigeration required. In addition to being able to deliver both hot and cold drinks you can also adjust the flavor of your drinks with just the simple turn of the dial. You can get it as mild or as strong as you like. This is one of my favorite features and the one that makes the Esio stand out amongst the other beverage systems. I don’t like my coffee very strong and with the Esio I am able to get it just the way I like it.
The Esio is definitely one of my favorite products of 2012 because it works with every person in your family. I can have a cup of coffee in the morning, and then throughout the day my kids can enjoy a nice ice cold (without the ice) glass of lemonade without any after taste from the e-pack used before. After taking the Esio to all three of my family get together’s everyone agreed that this is a fantastic product. It’s convenient, easy to use and makes delicious drinks. You can learn more about the Esio online and purchase one of these awesome systems for yourself at Walmart.
