    Loving coffee without being a drip article. From a man with infinitely more food credibility than everybody on this forum (with one notable exception. Not KWilk).
    Interesting alternate take on restaurant coffee from Chris Young, one of the authors of Modernist Cuisine (anyone getting this monster of a book?): http://eater.com/archives/2010/12/08...-damn-long.php

    Why buy an espresso machine that can only brew overpriced freeze dried shit or relabeled folgers?

    As a coffee fanatic I had to trythis place. I couldn't believe how overpriced everything was and when I saw them put a pod in a machine I almost laughed. It tasted exactly like what it was. I cannot believe this place is serious. Just go to Gimme Coffee on Mott street and have a real cup.

    considering the degree to which opinions are split, I suppose your point might stand, but it's entirely unclear one which side of the question you fall.

    It is the difference between making love to a gorgeous woman and sticking your schmuck in a glory hole at the truck stop off Route 80.

    He's pro-Nespresso, as am I, so I have to assume it falls on the side of FAIL = (Nespresso = Folgers)

    You call your cock a schmuck? You're never going to make love to a gorgeous woman with that kind of attitude.

    having someone clean the mess in my mini espresso machine and coffee grinder at work is one of top reasons I'm still here at this job.

    Schmuck is a Yiddish slang term for penis.

    No doubt it is a successful product and will remain so for many years to come. Nestle has spent far too much money to allow it to disappear. However, it is simply the modern substitute for instant coffee (Nescafe et al) and not a real coffee.

    Way to reach the most obvious conclusion on that one. [​IMG]
