Nespresso Coffee Maker

I love my Starbucks.  I have a great cup of coffee every morning. My barista knows me when I walk in, I don't have to udder a word, she knows my order.

However, a good friend, who's opinion I regard highly, said, "You have to buy a Nespresso Coffee Maker.  It's made in Switzerland. The coffee is about 50 cents a cup. One taste and this machine will kick your Starbuck's habit." I bit the bullet and bought this (to me) very expensive machine.

I tried one of the many flavors, there are over 20 available. I made the "lungo" cup, which is the mug sized, not the espresso.  I have to say, I thought it was watery.  Then a friend happened over.  She likes flavored coffee, so she tried the caramel coffee.  She said it was good, but commented, unsolicited, that it was watery.

So, although the coffeemaker is adorable (anything red in a kitchen is pretty much guaranteed to be a winner), the jury is still out as to if this is the newest, latest and greatest kitchen appliance out there.

DON"T GIVE UP YET!! I have personally experienced the lungo as watery, but if you know you can custom set the amount of water that goes into each brew, right? If you depress the button while making your cup it will override the default set at the factory..and until you change it, this will be your new default. This is ONE MORE EXAMPLE of why it is the coolest new appliance on the block :)
