Pods. Come on. Good coffee??

  GP this weekend.  Good to see Bautista beat Rea.

Bloody Bautista threw the championship away.  Rea really didn't win it, Bautista lost it. 

 

It shows the calibre of the GP riders.  They are just a cut above everyone else .

Rea wont go to Moto GP because he would find himself at the back of the field :yes:

obviously you have never had a nespresso coffee using "Lor"  brand,   Columbian  or  PNG pods

 

I love a good coffee at a cafe or restaurant and nespresso pod machines come a VERY close second

I have had coffee at some cafes that really shouldn't bother,  and paid top dollar for the privilege

Rea wouldn't get a ride in Motogp.  He just isn't good enough.  

World superbikes in where all the old motogp riders go when they can't cut it anymore. 

 

Riders do come the other way but not many succeed.  Spiers didn't go well.  Hayden did.

My coffee machine. Fully automatic.  Grinds the beans and froths the milk.   Ask me how much it cost...... You will be suprised..

About 12 times what I paid for my nespresso machine

(I paid $80)

 

so I get 2000 cups of coffee before I even get to the price you paid

$80 machine on gumtree
about $250 new
Pods from Cole's for $4:50 (on special) for 10 pods

I was so surprised by the quality of the coffee that I bought one for work

This one is automatic in that it punctures the pod and ejects it via a motor drive, the one I bought for work is manual punch and eject

As much as I hate to admit it, I actually agree re Nespresso. Not to cafe standard, but I'm yet to experience a home espresso machine that matches it for quality, let alone consistency/repeatability.

Was trying a $1000 Breville machine with built in grinder and proper steam wand recently. It was ok with some practice, but still no Nespresso. Have had friends make coffee from $3000 machine and no better

Plus $25 ALDI milk frother jug with three year warranty for the win.

Luckily my work has a cafe-spec machine. Bit of practice on that and you can make a very decent cup.

Pods do far, far better than a crap cafe coffee - about 80% of cafe's are crap

If they've got a "Vittoria" umbrella out the front or packs of the beans displayed behind the counter then you know to give them a miss.

Always foul from a cafe - surprisingly the supermarket ones are decent in a pinch for home use.

 

Kogan have decent, cheaper Nespresso versions of the pods

 

Would prefer a cup of instant Nescafe than what most friends deliver from their "flash" machines.

 

Didn't we have this discussion a while ago and k31th moved it to it's own coffee thread?
