Pod-coffee is a silly consumer trend that wasn't around 10 years ago and will be gone in 10 years time, but yet you look back and realize you have squandered 10 years of your life drinking shitty pod coffee. Why? Life is too short!

If it does it is a fail . If you love to drink good coffee never buy ground coffee and never let it sit for months.

Locomotive, that's great. I like trains and think I'll call this machine "The Train." The Train does use pods and I've tried a few of the different blends you can get. A couple aren't to my liking, but I like a couple others quite a lot.

I'm not sure how a purist like you ever buys a cup of coffee or an espresso anywhere with such strict standards. Life must be hard.

Love 'em LS. The bike has a great skirt guard.

And I say go for the secret club. I have one, it's called The Orchid League.

I've always wondered the same. I'm big in the study of wine, and I've met a few pricks in the process. But I'm afraid hard core coffee people are the worst!!

+1000. Really insufferable pricks and much worse than the winos.

I am far from purist when it comes to coffee. I use ibrik when I’m not lazy or Barrista single cup dripper bought from local Starbucks.
I just think pod coffee is more of a consumer trend than an alternative to normal coffee brewing.

It is an electric bread knife for the 21Century.

Try ordering whole bean coffee freshly roasted by your local supplier (DeansBeans .com) grind them and make a cup using a French press you will see what I mean.

I quite like the Arpeggio, I think it's called.

Ten years later I'll get my espresso. A huge part of the appeal of this is that with very little effort on my part, and in very very little time (when the water is heated it takes approx 15 seconds to make the coffee), I can have a very good cup.

That and the Ristretto are my favorites. The weaker strength ones pretty much suck. The new Indian one is fair at best.

Did you consider the one with the milk frother? My wife is the latte drinker, which means I need to consider a nespresso machine that can make one...

not all pod coffee is created equal. my SO just bought a freaking Gevalia machine that makes this absolutely awful swill, and I refuse to use it, but there are a few machines out there that seem to produce a decent cup. I just bought a new driver and my first-ever hybrid/fairway wood. Had been using a secondhand Orlimar Tri-Metal driver for, wow, a decade, and have never had a fairway wood or hybrid in the bag. Had sort of given up the game a few years ago but got an invite to play a very nice local club (Caves Valley) and didn't want to pass it up or embarrass myself. So I bought a Taylor Made burner driver and 3-hybrid. Both clubs a few years old, I think maybe 07 models, but on a nice sale. I'm not so picky really, not enough into the game to blow a whole lot of dough. I hit pretty well. Rain washed us out but I was on pace to hit low-mid 90s, which is about as good as it gets for me, and it was on a damned hard course.

Yes, we did. We decided against it because we already have a "good-enough" frother that cost us a couple bucks at Ikea. You know what I mean, too--it's that little battery operated thing. Plus, I don't really feel the need to froth. I drink just a bit of milk (1/2 cup?) with my coffee and can stick it in the microwave for 20 seconds.

All that said, the rep showed us how the frother works (it does hot or cold) and brewed up a latte for us. I think it worked fine. One nice feature of it, is that the frothing attachments attach via a magnet. So you can switch them out very easily.
