    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I have, also very good. I don't think any of them are undrinkable by any means, but I have noticed with espresso that I tend to like blends better than single origin. For brewed coffee the opposite, I am not sure why.

    This bump reminded me that I am running low on capsules. Just placed an order for 300 :slayer:

    Pro tip (you probably already know this) - if you place an order for 200 of a single variety they send the sleeves to you in a box (case) so you don't have to worry about stacking them up in your cabinet. Makes storage much easier.

    I didn't know that, thanks. But I wouldn't order 200 of the same variety

    I only ever ordered Arpegio or Ristretto so I just started buying a case of each at a time. Cut down on the shipping. Now, I just take a 10 minute drive over to Lincoln rd and just buy them in person. :slayer:

    Did you guys try the new flavor varieties? The cherry one was god awful but the chocolate had a very nice aroma. Didn't get to try the vanilla since they sold out.

    I once tried a flavored blend (I think it was Marron, a few years back) and it was disgusting. Don't think I will again

    Yeah, I can just go to Prince St here in New York and buy more during the day at lunch.


    Since I bought a machine and the 200 coffee case thing, they gave me three of the chocolate things. I am not big into those flavored things. I probably won't try it until I am out of the others or something. Oh yeah, does anybody want any of these decaf sleeves? :laugh:

    I bought the exhibit sampler wood box thingy and ended up with nothing in it but the decaf caps. I would bring it out to guests and say "see, these are all the varieties. sorry, we're all out of everything but decaf."

    Do you guys use the factory default espresso and lungo pull time lengths?

    Yes. But I'm also the guy who orders the sandwich with the pre-set ingredients rather than creating my own, so YMMV.

    No - my normal cup is a little longer than the preset espresso - not as long as the preset lungo

    I thought I was going to be all about the lungo because, well, it is more coffee, but I don't think they are as flavorful.
