I challenge you:
Well let me clarify - there's two of us who use it at home and colleagues often stop by for a coffee as well so I don't ingest 40 espressos a week all by myself
Now that I think about it, I typically go through two sleeves a week, too, though that is home and office combined.
I probably do...
I have had four or five today.
so is this a yeay nespresso thread or ney nespresso, i read some pages and it doesnt seem all that positive, my parents have one and i really liked the taste and splicity but i opted for a coffee makers since i drink coffee, i am now considering an espresso machine and nespresso seems like a good thing
If you want solid drinkable, mostly above average (0815 restaurant/café), espressi, without having to care at all about the preperation, go for it. If you're willing to invest time (or actually want to), go for a Rancilio Silvia (or alike) plus a good grinder.
so i am a little spoiled on coffee, i am in the bay and have blue bottle and philz all the time, i'd prefer to go the quick route of dropping in a capsule and etc so sounds like nespresso is for me,
which machine do you guys recommend? i was looking a this
I have (or rather had) the DeLonghi Citiz & Milk. Looks good but lots of plastic (that's the case with all Nespresso machines though).
The milk thingy is ok. It's no comparison to real steam-foamed milk -- "foam" incorporated in all the liquid" (as opposed to "frothed" milk: foam and milk are seperated) though.
gotcha, i actually dont drink frothy stuff to begin with, its more for guests, i tried the "foam" its not bad at all
I have blue bottle by me. I am unimpressed with their espresso. I have the pixie machine and love it. I didn't bother with the milk forthing BS because I hate milk. I think Nespresso is great for the simplicity and consistency. I do like the espresso at another local joint better, however this is eons above anything I can get close to work.
I really have to clean my drip tray. I think a sludge monster is going to get me soon.
You guy try the Naora yet? I like it. It kind of reminds me of the Rosabaya, which is awesome.
So many favourites, Indirya is definitely up there as well as Ristretto and Rosabaya.
see im mostly a coffee drinker with an occasional want/need for espresso, i think this little device makes most sense for me
I'm a diehard espresso drinker but for me being a college student, the simplicity of Nespresso is perfect. It fits ontop of my fridge and there is really no mess. The espresso is very good although obviously not as good as being at an Italian cafe. The best part for me is the online ordering, it will be at my door in no more then 2 days and its a flat shipping rate no matter how much you order.
The customer service line is also fantastic.
