    & the world just keeps getting better and better...



    Now, I can hold all my coffee nicely (or at least my 6 favourite types) in a swirly branded outlet...



    It's beautiful... The wife hasn't seen it yet, I suspect she'll whinge a bit (I won't tell her it cost $40...).

    One side has my shots:



    & one side has my lattes.



    It brings tears of happiness to my eyes.

    I didn't mess around with any of the weak stuff, even though I don't like strong coffees these higher numbers just seem to show tastier blends with a reasonable kick whereas the lower numbered blends can be a bit watery and tasteless, imho.

    I went for an Envivo Latte this morning - pretty good.

    Just add some milk to the kazaar and turn them into Lungos if you cant handle an espresso

    well done Betty, you can actually run EACH capsule on a long press and then a short press, it doesn't change the taste, actually it gets better

    so you have 1.5 dose for EACH capsule, instead of running two

    When you say "sloppy seconds", do you mean she's showered and scented, you used a condom and you are not present. Or, are you talking snarffing? I ask because Papillion is on the thread, and he is a pervert...

    Started off the morning with a Kazaar shot - nice.

    Decided to take another Kazaar shot and make it into a latte - meh, too milky, not enough kick... The shots are best as shots, if you want a latte then best to make a lungio then add a small amount of milk to that; if you want a really strong latte then add a shot to the lungio with milk.

    There you go, now you know.

    &, the Cantuccini biscuits are nice, individually wrapped too.
