Cioccorosso now available in our local shops.  Not bad, I must say, chocolatey without being overly so.

Not too acidic I like.

Ladies may like this at 6 intensity.  New limited edition with a tinge of masala taste and flavour, quite nice actually!  :)

^^ Is that a brand new release?  Odd, the capsule is the same as the Cioccorosso, unless that colouring is designated for all "Club Favourites" regardless of what the flavour actually is. 
There is no dark side of the moon really.  Matter of fact, it's all dark.

Not sure but a friend bought it for me in Germany, hence the German writings and instructions on the sleeve.  According to him, it's the latest limited edition.

Anybody else got this!  It tastes differently from other flavours!  The masala taste is evident but light and aromatic.  At intensity 6, it suits the taste of females more than the males! :D

My old Citiz is acting up. So I trade it in for $120 and got a new one - the entry level - U :)

Citiz is better IMO. U mechanism looks flimsy. First batch got lots of problem.

My Citiz just spoilt also, can't even turn on.
Wondering should I repair or get a new one.

What they didn't tell you is you can mix them together to create the ultimate blend.  ;D

Dang that didn't occur to me!  The Cauca is just a bit too acidic for my taste, although that's typical of Colombian coffees.

Fruity not too bad. Santander is dry and taste like toast bread. So I put them together. Nice.

Thanks for the heads up.

We got ours a few weeks ago - a pack of 5x10 variations. We liked the green one but wasn't too keen on the red variant.

Tonight I gave your suggestion a go and I really like the combination.

Something nice from http://www.tsugars.com/products-home appear at NTUC Xtra. Together with FIGI  water the acidic level is just nice for my liking.

Great nice to know that you like the combi.

Any idea if the Nespresso Maestria is more reliable? Is the internals still plastic like the rest?
The failure rate like quite high that's why the local MO guy is shifting to semi-pro machines. Hmmmm...........
