I have an addiction.

My Maestria with the steam wand is still working fine but I have been fascinated by the Creatista so took advantage of the $40 off and the JB HiFi deal to grab one at about $611 (-$40 from Nespresso direct later).

First attempt - the pump sounds are different. My Maestria sounds exactly like my old Lattisima Plus. Auto steam wand looks perfect but still can't do latte art (operator error).

So my initial attempts at latte art on the Creatista wasn’t great. I had better milk texture on the Maestria

Also since the Maestria is older I am more willing to experiment with third party capsules.  My first Lattissima Plus started leaking within months of using third party pods. Switched back to Nespresso and problem free on that and the Maestria.

Got the Lavazza Nespresso pods at the local supermarket and surprised that instead of a full plastic pod, it now has aluminum covers and bottoms.

Most of the Australian cafes and roasters have pods for sale. Singapore slow.

Got free coffee from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf today so my Nespresso machine was spared...
Their Espresso and Double Choc  Cookie Crumble Ice Blended drinks are tasty and yummy on a hot day.

Taka Nespresso? Was just there yesterday!

Enjoyed the praline flavour this morning. Not as dark roasted or intense as the ones I normally drink, but very nice subtle hazelnut aroma!

Hooted the aeroccinno 4 as well, 40% off!

Suntec...the praline intensity 6 is too mild for me.  I tried the intensity 9 Paris Black espresso and it was rich but not overly bitter.

Suntec? Or Raffles City? Did not realize Suntec has Nespresso.
