I've been a long time Nespresso user (my two Le Cube's, home and office http://www.nespresso.com/cube/) both continue to run great. Arpeggio is my go to. Use both the Arpeggio and Ristretto for my lungos when necessary. Anyhow, I was at the downtown boutique (YVR) on the weekend refilling and the gent behind the bar told me there will be a new dark released at the end of the month. Wouldn't tell me anything (top secret) apparently . Also said Nespresso was in the midst of "changing a lot of their current coffees"... whatever that meant. There is hope.
Never knew about Le Cube. What a clever machine. Love the cup warmers and folding/tilting water reservoir. What did they retail for? Found a couple on eBay for $400
