It's a design flaw I think. Even at 68 bucks I find it overpriced when you see how similarly built the Aldi/Coles/Woolies are.

Thx DH

I managed to trade in my spoilt aerocinno with Nespresso and get a new unit at 50% off. I never knew about this until I brought my spoilt one to the boutique to test it there. Well at 84$ I can swallow that instead of 168$ ;D

Funny: recently I was at the Nespresso boutique, planning on buying 10 sleeves.  I was told as a club member, if I bought 25 sleeves I'd get an Aerocino free.  So got suckered into the upsell...  ;)
There is no dark side of the moon really.  Matter of fact, it's all dark.

I was at my local Woolworths and they just had a Caffitaly branded induction heater milk frother for $45. If I didn't already have the Breville, I'd grab this in a heartbeat.

This one?

It's very good. No heating element in the jug - so it is easy to clean and unlikely to get damaged.

Don't use it as much since I got the dual boiler espresso/milk frother tho

Nobody tried the new limited edition? The dark roast not bad. Didn't like the fruity one.

Was in Perth for holiday and I suddenly remembered the tip from Doggie Howser to grab a milk frother. So after roaming KMart, Target, Woolies and Myer I settled for a Bellini for AUD 33. ;D This will be my stand by if the nespresso one breaks down again.

At the same time, I also load up loads of nespresso compatible capsules from Vittoria coffee and many others which are way below nespresso pricing.  I also hooted the nespresso limited edition caps for 37 AUD for 4 sleeves.

This is the one I would go for when my current Caffitaly one breaks down... the induction should be less prone to failures.

I have tried the signature blend. Wasn't as intense as the original nespresso ones even though it says intensity is 10. Less favourful also.
