    If you are used to "third wave" espresso they will all taste pretty light to you. But yes, once you get to that spectrum it is close to brewed coffee as far as strength. A lot more flavor though.

    Not sure what third wave means. I like the intense espressi from Nespresso. The very opening is a little bland in comparison to a high quality freshly ground and prepared espresso, but the aftertaste is decent enough. I'm happy with the purchase.

    Oh, the aeroccino is fantastic, too. Latte Macchiato with one intense lungo, 2/3 milk+froth. Better than in most cafés.

    I think the lungos are fine if you add milk and sugar. They don't stand up well on their own, which is what I need.

    I never use milk or sugar. I am sweet and creamy myself.

    I always drink Espressi straight. No foam, no milk, no sugar. However, if I add milk, I'll add sugar, too. Doesn't taste right without. I love some Latte Macchiato or Cappuco in the morning. And I think pouring three espressi in one gets a little expensive. I'll try to use ristretto/arpeggio for preparing a lungo.

    interesting...with the darker varieties I'll definitely add sugar in the raw with pure espresso, but with milk they don't need sugar. Now that I essentially make latte's all the time I sort of wish I went for the combo machines. Especially when I need to make like 8 in a row.

    Yeah, it takes a good 1.5 minutes for the aeroccino to do its job. For one Macchiato. But it's worth the wait. ;)

    Just bought more coffee. The employees at the boutique in Soho I find slightly creepy.

    Last time I was in and out with 60 sleeves in less than 5 minutes, including a taste of the new one. Efficient.

    :bounce2: Did you mean 60 capsules? 60 sleeves is a lot, unless you a re a one and done kind of buyer.

    I stood there and waited in line for about 15 minutes. Then the person checking me out was in training so it took even longer. :confused:

    50-60 sleeves is my typical purchase - I buy every 3 months or so. I go through a couple of sleeves a week at work and a couple at home.
