  1. Didn’t know nespresso had been around so long. I went through a phase but the stove top is so much better that I’m prepared to put in the time for a good cup of coffee these days.

    1. I hadn’t realised how long Nespresso had been around either. I was never tempted, though — I could see the cost of the capsules quickly adding up to something prohibitive and stayed well away.

      The stove-top makes far and away the best coffee I’ve had. It’s definitely worth putting in the time.
