A friend gave me some coffee the other day from Bones Coffee. She gave me Mustachio, which is pistachio flavored coffee, and Electric Unicorn Fruity Cereal , which is coffee that is supposed to taste like the Fruity Pebbles cereal. I tried the Mustachio today and it was delicious. I'm planning on brewing up some of the Electric Unicorn tomorrow morning to see what that is all about. That is a flavor profile I would have never associated with coffee. I am not very much of a coffee aficionado. I usually just drink store brand decaf coffee, because I am cheap, and don't like caffeine.

Flavoured coffee is not coffee.

Oh don't give me that pretentious crap, you may not care for it, but it is still coffee.

If there is real coffee inside it is, sort of. At least "coffee based beverage".

Unthinkable thing for some - people like different things...

Found a local coffee joint that makes all of the other places look like donkey swill.  Yummm.

I caved in and bought an espresso machine, with a steam frother. Now I need to find the blend that best suits bleary Saturday mornings. I'm not interested in grinding civet droppings, just something smooth with enough caffeine to make it worth the effort. I wish the local dealers did sample-size packets.

Let me know how it goes, I want to get one myself.

I was going to suggest Puroast Low Acid Espresso blend, but while it is very good, it is not £63.99 for a 1 kilo bag on Amazon UK good.

We have a Nespresso machine, and put on it the cheapest capsules available. Good enough for the daily caffeine intake, with a minimum of time wasted.

On workdays I drink the company provided swill. At weekends I have time. I do like nespresso pods as a drink, but I don't like the waste inherent in the design. Those pods are probably landfill.

Pods are supposed to switch to a biodegradable next year.

I still don't see advantage to hot/cold water & nescafe gold + (optional) milk & sugar. More convenient for an office for sure, but that is an only real advantage I see about it.

Nescafe gold only tastes good in comparison to standard nescafe, that's what's wrong with it.

Company I work in is awash in the pods of the multiple manufacturers, since we did promotions locally. Compared to them, any Nescafe instant is an ambrosia. Or I am just too used to a damn thing...  :D

I picked up one of these a few years ago https://www.kohls.com/product/prd-3341740/Ninja-Coffee-Bar-Single-Serve-System.jsp?pfm=bdrecs-WebStore-PDP-Horizontal1-b563-231&bdrecsId=632d20ba-e8be-4922-ba03-04453472e1e3 It makes a decent cup of coffee, and doesn't use pods.  It is capable of making various coffee beverages but really I just leave it on Strong and large.
