    I love a good coffee or 2 first thing in the morning before I get on to PC.

    Have a nespresso machine and my favourite pods are Dulsio and Volutto.

    There is one issue though they are quite expensive and I have tried a few other brands and there was a particular pod that was pretty good but Coles discontinued this pod number, damn you.

    Anyone tried any other pods that are just as good as Nespresso.

    If not, Bayview great business opportunity here, these bardurds have cornered the market:p

    I have an ALDI one. Cost $80, pods are $0.37 a pop. On par with Nespresso IMO but none of the machines compare to paying 10x the price for a café made coffee.

    We have a Nespresso machine too, and have had it for about six years. Husband likes the Ristretto mostly (he has it as a latte) and I like Arpeggio, Roma and Fortissio Lungo. There's nothing like waking up on a weekend and having a coffee to start the day, while still sitting in your PJs in front of the heater :D

    Good coffee and nespresso is an interesting sentence construction.

    I thought the 2 were mutually exclusive.

    Can't do pods, not a fan. I have a full manual machine and grinder at home and can't beat that.

    I agree, I have this too but they are way too needy.

    Wonder if anyone still drinks instant coffees? For a short time, I was into drip coffees but too much effort.

    Good question, I think I would have to be desperate to sink so low.

    I use my stove top mocha to brew my cup - old school, with the cool little dude on the side of the pot.

    Either use my own/family blend or Forsyths coffee. This is heaps cheaper than pods.

    Small double-shots are my thing. The greater volume of coffee makes me feel less guilty about using leaded (full-fat) milk.

    At work I use coffee-bags for black coffee. Prefer to go to a cafe up the road for a proper hit.

    I've got a Jura J5 machine - one of the best purchasers ever. It gets a lot of use - some people only visit for the coffee :-(

    Cheers

    We moved to Cowra for a 12 month stint and had Campos coffee beans delivered from Sydney every fortnight for our Sunbeam machine. Only one decent coffee shop in the town and it was above Sydney prices.
    We have become that addicted to a 'good' coffee that it is sometimes ridiculous the lengths we will go to.

    We are coffee addicts, but living in Darlinghurst we tend to go out. Sure it costs us triple the price of nespresso but we enjoy the experience as well as the taste.

    Life is about the journey and all that..

    I thought about a good manual machine, but the coffee expires so quickly that we wouldn't finish it in time as I travel alot for work :(

    Everyone seems to keep going on about this Aldi coffee machine and pods. Never tried it but everyone at work seems to have it and loves it.

    Talking about coffee tragics.... We have 2 Aldi pod machines, one in kitchen and one in our ensuite :D Nothing better than coffee smell in your bedroom on Sunday morning...

    We use Aldi and Coles pods and good to know that Woolies have now also got pods to their range.

    At my work place have 'proper' coffee machine and it's honestly have better coffee than many coffee shops. But I drink black coffee without any milk business...

    On the top of these coffees hubby and I have coffees in cafes as well, e.g. If having breakfast or afternoon cakes and coffee in cafes as we do often in weekends

    In the morning I drink Aldi Organic ground coffee in a plunger.

    ...BUT during the day - wait for it - I drink Nature's Cuppa INSTANT organic coffee.:p

    And the strangest thing is, every time a make a cup, people come up and go, "wow, that coffee smells great!":eek:

    Aldi pods for me too, cheapest/easiest when its dark pre cycle.
    Can Coles and Woolies pods fit in the aldi machine?
    I get free coffee at work, its ok. I refuse to spend money on a work day.
