{Product Review} + Holiday Gift Buying Guide Pick: The Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System

The Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System

I owe you guys an un-boxing! This was intended to be a video review, but my Slumlord, ahem, I mean Landlord, finally decided to paint the kitchen (renting is such a nightmare sometimes!), oh it's only been over a year that I've been waiting, but that's a story for another day. My home looks like a warzone right now so I reserve the right to come back here and add on a video review to this post. Not to mention I'd also like to upgrade my technology a bit, as much as I love my Bloggie Touch, the Audio Quality isn't quite what I'd like so I am hoping Santa stuffs a better camcorder in my holiday stocking!

But I didn't want to delay in sharing with you just how awesome The Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System really is! Let me start by telling you that this is a total thumbs up highly recommended Holiday Buying Guide gift pick! There really isn't anyone on your list that this wouldn't delight. Wondering what to get your Doctor's Office, a Client, an Exec, your spouse, your BFF, your in-laws? THIS is it!

Are you attending a special Holiday Party? Would you like to buy the hostess a gift that will knock her socks off? The Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System is it.

About The Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ  Fast The Esío Beverage System is 60 times faster and produces 5 times more beverages than most leading single-serve coffee machines on the market today!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ  - Saves Money - Each of the Esio MultiServe E-Paks™ will dispense 14-18 servings (depending on strength of each drink) of the product of your choice all without cross-contamination between drinks! You will save 50% on your non-carbonated beverages!

Esio vita-24 Fitness Water MultiServe E-Paks™

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ  - Hot or Cold - this system is ready when you are to serve up your favorite name brand drinks! It has a heating element to create hot water for tea or coffee, it also has a compressor to refrigerate cold water! It has a 1/2 Gallon hot water tank, a 1/2 gallon cold water tank AND almost gallon sized resevoir to refill the tanks as you make drinks. You can instantly go from a cold drink to a hot one, no wait, no hassles, no muss and no fuss!.

Esio Maxwell House Simple Roasts MultiServe E-Paks™

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ  - Compact - You can place this on your countertop or under your kitchen cabinets. And for renters like me, it fits perfectly in my portable microwave cart too! :)

Esio V8 Splash MultiServe E-Paks™

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ -  Drop'n Drink Technology - This is the part I want to make you guys the video for, what sets this system apart is the pump at the end of every Esio MultiServe E-Paks™. You drop in your favorite E-Pak, set the Strength Selector (I tend to go higher as I prefer a stronger flavor, but the lower you select, the more money you save in the long run), you press and hold the blue button for a cold drink or the red button for a hot drink, you are not only selecting strength, but you also control how much, you can pour as large or small a serving as you prefer, and the E-Pak mixes in mid-air to make your drink. and here's the best part, the E-Paks self-seal so you can put them away and re-use them until they are empty. They last up to ONE full year with NO refrigeration required.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ -  Patented 15-Setting Strength Selector - I love having the power to control how strong my beverages are!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ -  Safety Feature - To make sure no one dispenses hot water by accident there is a second step to dispensing your hot water, you just tap the Strength Selector dial in the middle and then press the red or hot button to pour a hot beverage!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ -  2 Gallon Capacity - It holds up to 1.85 Gallons of water when completely full, which pretty much ensures you can have hot and cold beverages all day long no matter how large your family size.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ  - Refill Indicator Light - When you see the orange light come on, that's the refill indicator, it means it's time to refill your Esio with water.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ  - Plug and Play - Seriously, you just plug this in and fill with water, give it a few minutes for it to heat the water in the hot water tank and chill the water in the cold water tank, it's that simple! Easy Peasy, I LOVE that!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ  - Warranty - Your system is backed by a a one-year warranty!

Since I couldn't make my own un-boxing video at the moment, I thought I'd share Esio's in the meantime!

MY Take:

As an apartment renter in New York City, to say I'm cramped for space and that I have a super SMALL kitchen is an understatement. Probably the understatement of the year! I have very little counterspace, and I love that the Esio Hot & Cold Beverage System allows me to save refrigerator space because the E-Paks do NOT require refrigeration. And now I don't need to have a separate Coffee maker which means it is also saving me valuable counterspace. The E-Paks are absolutely brilliant because they self seal, which means it truly stays fresher longer. I have family and friends over on the weekends for Wii parties, and invariably everyone wants something different to drink. There really is no cross contamination of flavors when you go from hot to cold or just from E-Pak to E-Pak! I am looking forward to them expanding their E-Paks offerings, I'm hoping for a hot chocolate E-Pak to be offered! (And if it were made by Godiva I'd be in Hot Chocolate Heaven this winter!)

Aside from not having hot chocolate/cocoa E-Paks yet, there is nothing I can find NOT to like about this system! It is easy to set up, saves you money, keeps me from having to carry heavy bottles up to my super small walk up, and you can go instantly from hot to cold, what's NOT to love? I can't think of anyone on your holiday list that wouldn't love it! The system is already available at Walmart! Check with your local store to make sure they have it in stock before you visit.

Have you tried this system yet? Please let us know what you think!
