What i suggest you do is this. Enter the Nespresso with both eyes closed. Take a big sniff at the place. That's the freshly brewed espresso that just wakes up all your senses. It's the same you get every time u make a cup at home... That beats visiting Starbucks even

Ok I go ion later see and taste and buy if like. This thread is poisonous too after read all the 13 chains..

oh one more... instead of using fresh plain milk, try using chocolate milk to make cuppacino using the nespresso foaming device... (can't remember the name).. you find that you get a nice chocolate tasting coffee ...

bro, you want to use the espresso smell to wake up your missus ah?

I tested all the models. In terms of convenience and noise, they are exactly the same. The only key differences are the design and whether you would like the milk part built in.

Some chose one for colour, others chose them for their features. Have a look. I'm sure u find one that suits you nicely....

One thing u need after getting the machine, get yourselve a nice Bodum cup. It takes a differences in your coffee experience. Not just because of the look but because the vacuum bodum cups hold the heat better and keeps the aroma longer...

If you are a Tangs or Taka card holder, u get the usual rebate. But for the experience, there's no beating the Nespresso outlet at ION which is my favourite handout at one point. haha... due to the free coffee sampling...

Let me give you all some neat trick.

Add nutella to your nespresso. You will get a nice hazel nut favour.

If you like those iced coffee, go get the favour syrup from Cold Storage. It makes it even more wonderful.

What!! You are killing the natural taste and flavor of coffee!!  Bro Wiz will say you have gone nutty!!... ;D

Ha ha! doesn't sound so convenient any more this way !!

Pretty cool solution for those wanting to taste bought beans.

How does it seal the top secure enough for 19 bars? Are the capsules resusable then?
