As per title.

I would like to draw your attention to http://www.capsuleaddiction.com an Australian based forum for all your Nespresso needs.

It was started by a few dissenters from another website where one of the many topics was anything/everything to do with the Nespresso system.

It's a nice, easy, and relaxed place to come in and discuss your favourite pod or the pros and cons of a certain machine. Even just to shoot the breeze.

Drop by and say G'Day. We don't bite.

Looks nice, but my machines (Nuova Simonelli Musica and Gino Rossi CC45) rule me out somewhat. :p

That said, I've had many a reasonable "Nespresso" espresso however. :cool:

Interesting forum - nothing like that exists in Europe that I am aware of..

Have had several Nespresso machines over the past 5/6 years.

Weird how all those Australians have Lattisimo machines - they don't seem to mention anything else. I detest Latte so maybe influencing me a bit....

When I use one, it's the fact that most of the ones I've tried aren't very high capacity - that tends to deter me.

I'm used to doing 3 or 4 coffees in quick succession, which usually means texturing two jugs of milk and making 4 espressos, depending on what coffee is asked for.

Very fortunately the big coffee machine I have has cheap and readily available parts, so if anything goes wrong, it's not hard or expensive to fix it.

I can't stand Nespresso (Swiss). However, the Keurig machine/coffee is even worse. Since when did Americans know about coffee.

I use one of these in the morning:

I used to use a Santos 12 cup automatic vacuum brewer, but it eventually cracked and failed. Vacuum units are difficult to come by these days, but the coffee the produce is so fine.

Well, I have cappucinos each morning, usually double shot - so it's just the normal amount in a small takeaway coffee cup. I make them myself.

I couldn't tell you how much that is, but mine tends to be half coffee (double shot espresso) half full cream milk, with a sprinkling of dark chocolate.

But I'll happily drink double espressos too. Or an affogato in the evening.
