Interesting. At my office, the machine is set up to pull an extra long Lungo, which is ok, though I also double up on that (but use two capsules).
As Woody Allen says, whatever works.

Artizan coffee has all kinds of ways to get a free sleeve.

So I ordered a decaf and their house blend.

Having one of the decafs now--the flavors are good if not particularly bold. A bit aqueous to start. Body is better in Nespressos.

It's also a decaf so, you know...

The same thing for their house blend. I feel like there's a good espresso here but it is just falling flat. I don't know if that's because both of these are given a 6/10 on their intensity scale. I can get another free sleeve so I might try their more intense blends.

ugh really don't like Cafezinho de Brasil, much prefer Dulsao.

Does anyone have Kona, Crealto or Margoagype pods they would be willing to sell?

Bought some special editions: the Suluja from Sudan is 100% robusta, and supposedly closest in taste profile to Roma. I like it more than Kazaar. 

 

Don't know what they put in the Linzertorte but it tastes straight up like raspberries. Good as a dessert shot or just to satisfy sweet tooth.

Just discovered this thread! Let's hear thoughts on the new seasonal flavours for virtuoline. I went hard on the banana bread one. Pumpkin spice and gingerbread weren't doing it for me.

WTF how did you get flowers? I want fucking flowers, not some bullshit Christmas Card from the CEO.

I'm special like that. Dunno, they just arrived. Didn't order a lot lately or something.

Cafecito de Cuba is great.

The Suluja is fairly insipid and in no way an eight on the intensity scale. Having one of the new-recipe Livantos...wow. Good stuff.
