I have, they are okay. But what are you comparing it to? The mainstream over-hot burnt coffees available at 90% of Adelaide's cafés? If you need to add milk and sugar to an espresso, then it's not made correctly.

Also I object to being locked into buying Nestlé's pods. There's so many wonderful coffees out there, but you are locked into the unlucky 13 rainbow of anonymous pods. Which cost 4 times that of pre-ground beans, and are disposable, not recyclable (what a waste).


Now let's talk about those Dyson hand dryers... ;)
Exit on the right in the direction of travel.

Haha true. I guess it's the convenience and lack of cleaning that appeals to me. I also have my coffees black and love the seasonal dark chocolate variety on offer at the moment :p

Loving the limited run flavoured pots at the moment too.. for someone who'll never make coffee as good as the baristas on rundle street this is like the next best thing for me. So convenient for us at home.

Actually, they are recyclable. There's a spot in the store where you can bring the pods to so they can be recycled. There's a screen playing a video all about it above the bin.

Oh yeah, and you aren't necessarily locked into getting the Nestle stuff, since there are pods that can be used in the machine that aren't Nesle. I'm not going to speculate on quality though...

in London, I went to the "runner up" of the best coffee in the UK to drink their famous espresso with milk. It turned me into a coffee snob, nothing compared to it. Not even nespresso. I went to one of Perth's famous coffee shops in Leederville and even that tasted below par. Until, I stumbled upon the Coffee Barun last week. The coffee there gave me the same tingly consistency feeling that the London Coffee. They need to get into world competitions because I've tasted nothing like their coffee. Amazing.

I think it was called Nude Espresso? I do know it's got a famous style called "espresso with milk" which is basically a latte but they call it that. Haha.
