    Went down to the Nespresso store on SoBe yesterday. Holy shit, they're charging $7 for a latte made with a Nespresso cap and an Aerochino. Can't beat the convenience of not having to get your caps shipped. Tried out the new special edition Djana. It like a Roma cap crossed with a flowery taste. Pretty good.

    Any news on third party caps or people using reuseable caps?

    I got a lot of Djana, I like it a lot. Much better than the white capsule that was the spring special release.

    I posted the other day in the 'coffee' thread about a recent 3rd party, Nespresso compatible capsule by Caffè Vergnano. They have Caffès in the US, I believe.
    A box of 10 Espresso comes to 3.20 euros. We have only 4 blends in the range here in It. I got the Intenso and Arabica and they're not bad at all. Similar in strength to the Ristretto, Arpeggio or Roma.

    Have to admit, I was hatin' on Nespresso. Now I'm a hardcore convert. The quality/ease ratio just can't be beat. I have neither the time nor inclination to master the art of espresso, and Nespresso provides a great alternative. Bought my wife a machine for our anniversary as she's an espresso fanatic, and have been nothing but pleased.

    Weirdly, I find myself drawn to the "rosabaya" (or whatever) Colombian capsules. I had assumed I'd be down for something stronger, but this midrange blend is very flavorful.

    Fuck me. I set down my hipster glasses for a minute. It is about day 5 with this machine at work and I am a convert. Is there a emoicon for foot in mouth?

    I fully admit that I am an asshole. The only problem now is because it is so easy and delicious I am drinking about 100 espressos daily.

    We all already knew this

    Have you tried all the flavors yet?

    Not all of them, but so far I think I like the Arpeggio, Roma, Livano, and Capriccio the best. I also liked the Indian coffee. I have never had one before.

    I tried it at the Nespresso boutique and liked it enough to buy three sleeves. It is noticeably stronger than Ristretto, which is my favorite blend. I'll have to see if my hands start shaking in the morning after my customary double shot.

    I was just reading about it. I think the Ristretto is too much, honestly.

    I like the Arpeggio and Roma. The ristretto to me just tastes like really darkly roated coffee. To me it masks a lot of flavors that come out when you "lighten" up a bit.
