When I moved in to my current home, my friend T (who lived here before me) left behind a Dolce Gusto coffee machine, which was supposed to be broken. However, it was only suffering from the extremely hard water, and after some vinegar treatment, it was back in action - I never use the local tap water in the kettle or coffee machines as it would just insta-stain them.. Instead, I bring tap water from Bray as it's perfect =D (Even the cats drink Bray water.. heh..)
For a long time, I was happily enjoying Dolce Gusto coffees, but especially after comparing to the Nespresso stuff (D had a Nespresso machine in Bray), I felt that Dolce Gusto was mainly good for stuff like cappuccino or latte macchiato, whereas the espresso or barista were lacking "oomph"..
Well.. D bought himself a DeLonghi coffee machine, and now uses freshly ground beans only.. Soooo, he didn't need his Nespresso machine (nor the milk frother) anymore, and gave them to me! =D
My coffee corner now takes the largest part of my available kitchen counter space, but what can you do.. I still like to use the Dolce Gusto as well! And I also drink lots of tea, so the kettle is necessary..
