Coffee machines

Aldi have just released new pods for their fantastic Expressi machine. They now have Chai Latte, Hot Chocolate, and decaf coffee pods. The Expressi Chai Latte is a killer - it's sweet, full of spice and can be prepared with or without milk. Even if you don't drink coffee, it's ...

If you have an Aldi Expressi machine, then you absolutely must get yourself some of the new Aldi Expressi Cioccolat hot chocolate capsules. They are one of the nicest hot chocolates I've ever had. I'm still using my Expressi machine daily for coffee (and loving it), but now I get ...

Both my parents are bordering on being coffee snobs. My mum has a vintage commercial Rancilio, and my dad has a collection of domestic Gaggia's. I however, care more about what's in the cup, than how it got there.I generally use one of my several stovetops for my morning brew. ...

I'm shocked at how many people neglect to consider the importance of buying a decent burr coffee grinder. They spend big money on a fancy espresso machine, and then run pre groung supermarket coffee through it. If you want to make your espresso machine happy, then feed it fresh home ...
