Singapore only citibank has. Not avail in normal stores. So here only for cooperate use. I have tasted it. It's like normal long black. Not suitable for our intense taste bud.

So I was at the Nespresso Boutique in Chermside Westfield (Brisbane) yesterday and wanted to try one of the Christmas variations and the friendly/knowledgeable barista told me they’d run out of the flavored one.

But he said I could try the same flavor in the Vertuo range. And when I asked about the price of the machine, he said I could get it online for $1. The caveat is that you have to pay for a $50 monthly subscription for at least 12 months. The $50 is transferred as credit to your Nespresso account and then you can use it to purchase any Nespresso coffee or accessories and can be rolled over. Just cancel after 12 months and you keep the machine.

$50 a month is about what we spend on coffee capsules anyway and we can mix and match original Nespresso capsules and Vertuo capsules in the order.

So that’s another machine in my line up. Adoi. I already have a Caffitaly and a Nespresso Maestria at work. Plus a Breville Creatista Plus and a BES920 Double Boiler at home

Now I hardly use my machine at home.  I get my craving at the Bank's cafe during coffee break...

Finally consulted the manual. And adjusted the volumes. The Bigger capsules of the new Nespresso machines tend to have more coffee but the default settings use too much water so it tastes over extracted. I’ve adjusted the water levels down to the traditional settings (30ml per espresso shot) and taste has improved.

For me I have a grinder/espresso machine which I tend to use when I can use up my 500g of beans in a short enough time frame. The pod machines work for when I don’t.

I work in an industrial area so my only coffee is what I can bring with me. So I have a Caffitaly machine and a Nespresso machine for supermarket purchased pods.

Might bring the Vertuo to work so I can make bigger cups. The largest cups are 414 ml but I’ll probably adjust it to 300ml

New limited editions. The Trieste is robust and smooth with a tinge  of chocolate taste, nice.
