    :( I ordered one sleeve of the new Brasil. Did not get the Cuban. My habits have converged on the Envivo lungo and the Arpeggio, Indriya, Rosbaya and Dulsao de Brasi, depending on what I feel like and time of day.

    I've had a few shots of the Brasil and liked it.

    Well your face is ugly. I can see why people would like it, FWIW. It's just a... distinctive profile.

    Does anyone have experience with any of the Nespresso alternatives? I have some from the Ethical Coffee company that are thoroughly middle of the road. Had some when I was somewhere overseas that was so acrid and foul no cream or sugar could mask the awfulness...

    I've been going with the Envivo lungo for cost purposes. I can use one capsule instead of two of the espressos. Not quite as good as the double espressos I generally drink (Ristretto, Kazaar, Dharkan), but it does the job.

    Interesting. At my office, the machine is set up to pull an extra long Lungo, which is ok, though I also double up on that (but use two capsules).
    As Woody Allen says, whatever works.

    Artizan coffee has all kinds of ways to get a free sleeve.

    So I ordered a decaf and their house blend.

    Having one of the decafs now--the flavors are good if not particularly bold. A bit aqueous to start. Body is better in Nespressos.

    It's also a decaf so, you know...

    The same thing for their house blend. I feel like there's a good espresso here but it is just falling flat. I don't know if that's because both of these are given a 6/10 on their intensity scale. I can get another free sleeve so I might try their more intense blends.

    Does anyone have Kona, Crealto or Margoagype pods they would be willing to sell?

    Bought some special editions: the Suluja from Sudan is 100% robusta, and supposedly closest in taste profile to Roma. I like it more than Kazaar.

    Don't know what they put in the Linzertorte but it tastes straight up like raspberries. Good as a dessert shot or just to satisfy sweet tooth.

    Just discovered this thread! Let's hear thoughts on the new seasonal flavours for virtuoline. I went hard on the banana bread one. Pumpkin spice and gingerbread weren't doing it for me.

    The Suluja is fairly insipid and in no way an eight on the intensity scale. Having one of the new-recipe Livantos...wow. Good stuff.
