    Default Coffee maker?

    Do you think it is worth getting one? I usually make instant, but I do enjoy drinking coffee made by a barista so i am considering buying a coffee machine for home.

    Are the nespresso ones good?

    Just bought my DH the nespresso u for his birthday on thursday he has gone through 6 coffees already and is so in love. It has one of the highest scores on product review. Paid about $249 in the good guys so good priced and works better then the more expensive ones

    When you buy a coffee out, are you generally happy with it or do you often find it doesn't live up to your expectations? If you're generally happy with it, then a nespresso-type machine is probably great. Good coffee, easy, and (unless you drink a lot of it) reasonably cheap.

    Personally I wouldn't get one, but then I'm a bit of a coffee snob. I love my Sunbeam Cafe Series machine... but you're not overly fussy about your coffee, it'd be more effort & money than it's worth.

    I love my nespresso, but I'm about to indulge in a super machine (a Jura j9.3)

    Just do your research, if you live in a capital city it will be a lot easier to get pods. Woollies sell compatible ones but they're not as good (I think it's the plastic vs metal pod)

    I'm buying the Jura to eventually save money, as all you're buying is beans.

    If you want any more info re: nespresso I'm happy to answer

    I can't even speak before having my morning coffee. I personally do not the pod systems- I have one where you scoop ground coffee into it (Delongi). I don't like being limited to the kind of coffee I like. Definitely a coffee snob here too lol.

    I had a manual one (breville) that had a separate grinder but I didn't use it much because it was a pita. I got a nespresso last year and love it! Gets used so much in this house.
