Where my coffee lovers at? :D

I love coffee and wanted to know what coffee the ukmix community likes and which machines (e.g. Jura) or systems (e.g. Nespresso/Dolce Gusto/Senseo) you use.

I use the Dolce Gusto system for about a year now and really LOVE it!

I started with the Piccolo in red:

Now I'm about to change to the Circolo with Flow Stop in red:

Does anyone her use the same system (Dolce Gusto)? And does anyone use the Circolo already? I'd really love to hear some "reviews" for this machine :D

At home, I generally drink Carte Noir - which is generally regarded as an above average, slightly upmarket instant coffee.

At work, I used one of my budgets to purchase a Tassimo machine. 8-)

Love fresh coffee.

I probably spend anywhere up to £100 per month at coffee shops too.

Since I have the Dolce Gusto system I have to use their capsules. That's why I mostly drink Dolce Gusto coffee.

I love the Lungo Intenso (normal coffee, but more intense) and the Grande Intenso (same, but a bigger mug)
Cappuccino and Latte Macchiatto unsweetened are great, too! :D

I know this one! :o It's the best instant coffee imo. I drink this one when I take a thermos flask to school in winter :D

My monthly food expenses are less than that. :lol: What do you do with all that coffee? Or you count going out in cafes in that money?

Anyway, I drink nescafe classic, tho I realise it's not that popular. People seem to prefer the one from machines. Oh, and I can't imagine coffee without ciggaretes. Either both, or I don't drink it.

I like a coffee every morning before I start work, if I meet friends, a coffee shop is as good a place to meet them, if I have a meeting at work I find that it's much more pleasant to have it with coffee...you get the picture. :lol:

Oh, I get it now. For me, coffee shop is where you buy coffee, not also a cafe, but I see I was wrong. Understandable then, I thought you were buying coffee in value of 100 pounds, hence my comment. :lol:

Instant coffee like Serby and Chun posted, it's quick and the cheapest option. Started drinking coffee only about a year ago and now I absolutely love it.

I also like Turkish coffee but we only make it if there's more people because I'm too lazy to make it for one or two people only.

Oh and milk is a must have for me, as much as possible :lol: and I also put a little bit of sugar. But I can do without sugar, but can't do without milk. It was kinda frustrating in France, everyone there drinks espresso and you really have to specify if you want milk in your coffee and everyone looks at you like Y U RUIN COFFEE WITH MILK?!, but I dunno, I just have to have at least a little bit of it.

I loved it in Portugal though, when I'd order coffee with milk in cafés, I'd get a huuuge full mug 8-)

It's very expensive and I hate it to be dependent on one brand. Recently I used Starbucks 3 mornings in a row. Also expensive as **** but I can stop doing it at once.

Capsules or tablets ...

I have Dolce Gusto Krups, but I barely drink coffee now.

I don't drink coffee, looks and smells awful. Just like milk.

I never tried both and never will. Here's To Never Growing Up :lol:

If I'm feeling lazy just 'GoldBlend' but instant coffee is like instant tea.....bad.
I usually buy beans to grind and then filter it or for a coarser grind a cafetiere. I also have one of those Gaggia espresso machines but don't use it often. I drink way too much of the stuff, like 10 + cups a day :)
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
