hey
i went to most spots you went within the last 2 months.

Actually my friend has the Citiz as well, to upgrade their "selected" office rooms and bonus for their "selected" best improvement employees.

But i heard from the Barista in Geneva there's some compatibilty issues with the old caps.
The container to hold the used caps, abit small ain't it? I think even smaller than the Essenza.
I'm not sure if there's warranty covered here, but i think those i saw in Europe won't.
I did not see it here in China

Will check it out when i arrive in Hong Kong again.

The dual head one really looks cool.
You observed the water there got gas and there's bubbles to make it even more cool?
Anyway, it will be launched here in SG end of the month and by then, you will have the warranty.
I do not hear of any compatibility issues with the capsules used on my Le Cube.

I am particularly interested in the citiz for office. But do have a few complaints. What if my colleagues started using it?

Haha...
Anyway, we will see. Now i just see that my capsules is reducing everyday... thought I just got a 250 packs recently??

I bought a few more strips of capsules in France. Cheaper by around 20% I think.

are those cups 6 for $59 good for retaining heat when coffee is in it?
are they good for large cup espressos or only small cup espressos?

hi, i'm keen on the items.

just to clarify, must we use nespresso's capsule, or we can buy our own coffee? E.g. starbucks type. Powder form or coffee beans?

thanks

Hi bro,

Just wanted to let you know that I've been enjoying the nespresso machine I've got from you the last time. I went to Taka a few weeks ago to buy some capsules and this nice indian chap gave me 6 free ones as samples. Ended up buying 20 more without 2nd thoughts, haha!

On a sidenote, I've also been experimenting with 'self-refills', which i read about online coz i find it an environmental waste to throw all those capsules away. If only SG would have a proper nespresso capsule-return system like europe...

I used premium coffee beans i brought home from australia, but the results aren't fantastic. It was both difficult to grind to the right size (i use an adjustable burr grinder) and tamp into the capsule. The resultant coffee is inconsistent from capsule to capsule, some are delicious (thanks to the wonderful beans), while others are too bitter or watery.
