    If you're going to be in the city, then be sure to check out all the boutique coffee shops. They will certainly have good cups in stock.

    BTW, this looks like a nice gadget for recycling Nespresso capsules:

    I just throw the caps into the recycling. Fuck the grounds. I wish Nestle would institute the damn recycling program here already.

    But if you live in a city like Matt's, then the green gestapo may come after you for not composting the grounds, too.

    I live in Florida. I'm lucky my building even has recycling at all.

    Same, except substitute "garbage" for "recycling."

    Well, looks like we're joining the cult. I love my Rancilio, but my wife (who gets up before me) does not. Sooo...we got the Citiz, and I think it's great. At my best, I can definitely make better coffee than this, but I am seldom at my best at seven in the morning. The Nespresso makes very good coffee, IMO...don't know if the hate here is really cause of the taste or all the other BS that surrounds the brand (which is admittedly annoying).

    Anyway, now that I'm in THE CLUB, I'm going to ramp up the toolishness and ask what capsules you guys like and why?

    I like dark roasts, and Ristretto is my favorite. I also like Arpeggio and Indriya.

    +1, also the Roma.

    TheIdler, I'd recommend you order the welcome package. It gives you a little of everything to try.

    Arpeggio and Roma here. Ristretto is good too.

    Does anyone here actually own and use the Outpresso device?
