I assume you are using these for your regular cuppa!!  Care to elaborate on whether these taste better than the norm!!....... :)

Filtered water and distiller water and mineral water all taste different. Even the clarity of the tea and coffee are different.

But don't ask me to blind taste! ;)

Think the price shown has already been discounted!  Don't think any further 20% discount!..... ::)

Went Robinson's on Fri evening, the S$578 (after $100 discounted) SOLD OUT! The salesman told me to order, deliver to house at S$578.

What do you think of the basic machine at S$398!!! ;D

Get a friend who is a Robinson card member to buy it with a $25 cash voucher (free) n a further 5% discount on the $578.  This will give u a final figure of $525.35... :)

Paris Silk cheaper. Bought the high end model at 11% less than Robinson price.
Is there any place to get the capsules cheaper? From overseas ?

Bring a capsule there and test it on the spot.  If it's working, think it's worth it... ;D  the aroma itself is enough to please you!!...... ;D

or go to ION and have free coffee from the Nespresso shop there. You can test all the flavours for free!

Know some one inside... sometime can get pretty good stuff.  Cannot sell to them, they give super low price for anything brought there.  Nowadays most of their goods are from China. .. ;D

onirio is in! with a pair of nice cups
maybe the human ear isn't good enough. we need measurements, figures, numbers, calculations to tell and convince us what good sound is. or do we have to satisfy an unspoken insecurity??
