    I can usually drink as much caffeine as I want and I dont get jittery or become unable to sleep. However, I the rare instance, it does happen... I shall see.

    I do get jittery if I have a ton at once, but even that won't affect my ability to sleep.

    The double walled cups/mugs are superb.

    30ml espresso/120ml frothed milk. Also, your frothed milk looks too stiff. And more like a Caffe Latte -- milk/espresso/foam. If you can change the consistency, do it. Take some cream, fill it in a sealable jar and shake it a couple times until it gets a little foamy. That's (roughly) the consistency you're aiming for. Creamy. Milk/foam should be one homogenous mass.

    Nope, like it the way it is. Superb. Plus, I only use skim.

    But, hey, thx anyway.

    I love my buddy's 'Melbourne Special' which seems to be like the cap you are describing. But, he won't be seen near a Nespresso machine. Likens it to downloads rather than vinyl.

    :)

    They sure are. $$$ but worth it. Aesthetics matter.

    Love the Bodums. I use their beer glasses for my pourovers.

    Notneutral makes a nice modern coffee cup, too. Intelligentsia uses them.

    NCAP/ACF cups are the most beautiful ones I've seen so far.

    Rambo's got me sold on buying one of these. I'll be making a purchase soon. Just need to figure out which model.

    I love Bodum's glasses but they're so fucking fragile. I think I've broken like three of them just accidentally. Gave up on them after that.


    I prefer the Citiz over the Pixie. 2 reasons:

    1) the small cup tray has a magnetic latch on it so you can keep it in the 'up' position without using a glass to prop it up.

    2) i just think it looks nicer on the counter.

    The Pixie has some power saving features but I don't see how they're that useful unless you keep it on all day long, and who does that?
