I have recently come to deeply resent my Nespresso machine.

I hate this site.


#1026

That serious looking grinder went for £15. The coffee machine £140.

I should’ve bought them & put them on ebay.

Splinter company called Pureground

My life has been forever changed since last Sunday, @edd9000 and I did a dodgy deal where I got a broken bean to cup machine as part of the deal.

I didn’t like coffee before, I’m drinking about 4 cups a day, now.


#1029

Nice one Craig. Did you repair it yourself?


#1030

Yes. Disassembled the grinder motor unit and then reassembled it - part of it looked as though it ended up forced apart from being clogged (or for some other reason, unsure), works well.

The repair included me having to take the u bend off of the sink as when I was messing around with it, it fell apart and spewed springs/ball bearings all over the worktop.

Steady on! Sounds like a purveyor of wooden boxes full of cat litter to me.

Oh, hang on! That type of “ground”.


#1032

Coffee filled Entreq? Just imagine the foo potential with having to refill with Yirgacheffe every four weeks to keep the sound fresh…


#1033

I’ve gone back to mine, I’m trying to go a whole month without faff

Wanker.

Post lunch espresso

Just noticed my Nespresso pods have a best before date of March 17. Is this an issue ?

No need for wind up replies, I’m not a Nespresso salesman :smile:


#1037

Don’t worry, they can’t taste any worse :smiley:


#1038

He said no wind up replies, but the very first reply…

…from the wind-up merchant-in-chief…of course :wink:


#1039

I thought I was being helpful :roll_eyes:


#1040

I don’t really understand the question. It won’t kill you (the pressurised steam pumped through them is likely to kill any stuff growing in it), so it’s a question of taste, which can only be answered by someone who has old Nespresso pods around to test it. And the only person there is…


#1041

Sensible answer:
Best Before dates are advisory. Used By dates have safety connotations.

Actual answer:
They are shit. You deserve what you get.


#1042

Mostly troll?


#1043

The flavour of the old pod??
