Early Chrissy present to myself.  
Splurged today and bought myself a Nespresso machine. These little machines have been tempting me for a while, and seeing as how I work almost directly opposite a Nespresso store it was in my face all the time. I never wanted a big fussy one that uses ground coffee, knowing that if it was fiddly to use or clean I'd probably not use it much at all, but the little pod machines are perfect in that there's bugger-all cleaning to do. (Why yes, I AM lazy; how can you tell? *g*)
This is the machine I bought:

coffee machine

Isn't it a cutie?! My only complaint (if you could call it that) is that the cup sizes are tiny; I need to run two pods through to get a decent-sized cup.

My sister is flying up tomorrow so I probably won't be around much over the next few days. Make sure you all have a great weekend, yeah?

Strike while the irony is hot: [EMATE] CUPPA COFFEEdraycevixen on November 8th, 2012 02:45 pm (UTC)

My younger brother has one of those pod machines and loves it.

So enjoy, both the coffee machine and your sister's visit.

Aren't those machines neat?
I bought myself a Keurig last year, and I love the convenience of having a cup of coffee (or tea) inside 30 seconds :-)

Mine has two settings for cup sizes, but event the big cup doesn't fill a real coffee mug :-(
So I just use two small cups.

It is more expensive than using the coffee-maker, but I waste less coffee.

And did I say I can get my cup inside 30 seconds?

Yes :-)

Yes! It's brilliant.
I didn't think of using two cups, just ran the first cup back under again. So it takes 60 seconds instead of 30 but it's still as quick if not quicker than boiling the jug.
Next machine will be one with a timer/ alarm so I can set it to make the coffee as I'm getting up. Heaven.

Mine will be a bit easier to clean. The water tank has a gadget at the bottom that is inaccessible :-(

but I love the thing anyway!

Only way to get the present you want ... buy it yourself ;)
Exactly!

Thought you'd like the icon.
