    I've got one of the Nespresso coffee machines, and I love it :-)

    The only thing I don't like, is having to go into one of their shops to buy more coffee (plus it works out at around 30p a cup).....pretentious doesn't even come close to that experience!

    That could open up a whole load of new possibilities for lunch, too.

    I have a Tassimo machine and its great. Easy to manage and fill up. The pods are available from all good supermarkets.

    TASSIMO - TASSIMO Machines and T DISCs. The secret’s in the barcode

    Much better than instant muck!

    Free coffee too. If its free, I drink more therefore making me more productive. If I have to buy my own, I drink less making me less alert and motivated. Technically, providing free coffee to the workers could save thousands of pounds.

    Which - if Futurama has taught me anything (and it has) - will cause time to slow right down allowing you to perform tasks at super-human speeds.

    I still see no issue...

    Hmm, you make a good point.


    Well, apart from one thing. Time doesn't slow down, you just process it faster giving the impression that it's slowed.

    the last place I worked in had a fancy coffee machine, because the kettle was removed as it failed to meet their acceptable risk assessment criteria

    won't say where it was, but they write and support a well known MIS...

    Bloody pods. Hate them. I understand the reasoning that it keeps it fresher and sealed, but I dunno, I just like doing it manually. Plus I can buy annnnnnny coffee I want, not just what Nescafe or whoever provide. It's just another proprietary system to get locked into

    Personally I just use a french press, although I would like a (small) coffee machine I guess.

    What I will be buying soon is a Vietnamese drip filter and some Vietnamese coffee. That, iced with condensed milk, is heaven

    Push the boat out and get one of these - De'Longhi Magnifica ESAM4200 15-Bar Bean to Cup Espresso/Cappuccino Maker, Silver: Amazon.co.uk: Kitchen & Home its just SO much better than the alternatives!

    Does anyone own a Nespresso EN520.R Lattissima machine? Sawit on a few sites and watched a few vids on YouTube and looks very nice. I like the way it can take small or large mugs, froths your milk for you and the detachable milk holder you can store in the fridge. The cons appear to be that it's rather noisy, and the wife, who did a stint on a Starbucks coffe bar on a holiday park over summer, cant see how the milk can be heated and foamed so quickly.

    Hottop Coffee roaster + Silvia & Rocky at home. Aeropress for work. Coffee's a serious business but good espresso ... good espresso is an art.
