    In truth though, as I was born in Colorado, I consider myself first and foremost, a western mountain man.

    Also, crabs are not kosher.

    @The Noodles Nespresso is your best bet. Just make sure to buy the new version that uses the new, larger pods. Their patent ran out on the older version, so they changed the pod design.

    Noodles, this - assuming, of course, she simply likes coffee. Aeropress essentially makes an Americano, if that is something she is interested in. We have a Keurig for my wife so she can make coffee quickly before leaving for the hospital - personally, I don't find it great, but it is functional for her which is all that matters. For me, I use a Beehouse pourover with a Bonavita kettle and a Hario hand grinder. I love it. I also have an Aeropress and absolutely love it - great use of $30. It is really enjoyable making coffee by hand - a slow, peaceful process in the morning. If she wants more than just coffee, though, you can politely disregard all of this. Just wanted to sing the praises of making coffee this way. Horses for courses and whatnot.

    Thanks y'all for chiming in. My wife wants the Nespresso that does the latte and cappuccino. I told her there will be no more visits to Starbucks. I really have to question the quality of the capules and their contents. I don't know if they are of good quality.

    They are good. Much better than Kuerigs offerings. Only downside is you can't walk into any old store to buy the pods. Bloomingdales in Chicago is the only local place for me. Supposedly this is for the sake of freshness. They have a nice recycling program for the pods which is a plus for me. I love the Milk frother which has hot or cold settings for Hot or Ice Coffee. I do miss my reusable keurig cup where I could put any ground I wanted to in it. I don't believe Nespresso has anything like that yet.

    Nespresso capsules are probably the best portioned coffee out there, check out nespresso.com for choices. My favs Dharkan and Kazaar. I use a simple machine, though, and just foam the milk with a small foamer stick (no idea what they are called), works hot and cold and saves me from the elaborate, hygenic cleaning of the machine's system.
    Even Greg has one at NMWA's premises.

    To my mind as a native Virginian (the real Virginia, Noodles--not the sprawling house farm that is the 703 area code), Baltimore is and always has been a southern city, in as much as Richmond or Norfolk are also southern places. It shares the social, racial, and economic history of the Chesapeake region, the cuisine of the Atlantic Coast southern states, and the politics of major southern cities.

    I think my pants are trying to tell me something. My pants ripped again for the second in June around the side pockrt area. I guess that Shake Shack and cheese fries didnt serve me well yesterday.

    Dang it, I ordered the Nespresso Delonghi Lattissma Plus just now. Wife better drink that stuff 24-7 and make sure she gets a good return on investment. :brick:

    It would be faster to list the things that are correct I think.

    There, I'm done.

    Ok, perhaps that wasn't so "good-natured". Here's a few of the most egregious to my eye:

    Two colors is just bad.
    Ventless
    2x2 buttoning? It's missing at least 2 buttons on the front, more like 4 missing.
    Dated notch shape
    I don't like the jetted satin-black pockets
