presenting Aeroccino +(plus); I miss my Nespresso

Nespresso Aeroccino + box

Some of you may remember that I had a few problems with the original Aeroccino. Then in June last year, I replaced my Nespresso machine together with Aeroccino device to Nespresso Lattissima under warranty. (Okay, I topped up for upgrading from a basic Nespresso machine to Nespresso Lattissima.)

After drinking my Nespresso coffees, my friend Jessica bought a Nespresso machine, the same one as I had. She bought the new Aeroccino +(plus) instead of the original Aeroccino. After a few testing in her place, I love the new Aeroccino +.

What's the benefit of the new Aeroccino +(plus) over the original Aeroccino.
Beside based on the easy to use Aeroccino design, it can make twice the amount. This is a great thing for making hot chocolate. The base is redesigned, it won't get damaged if immerse into water (as in the original Aeroccino). The new Aeroccino + also makes cold milk froth (the original Aeroccino only makes hot milk froth). It also has improved coating inside making the cleaning even easier.

I know that my Nespresso Lattissima has milk frothing built-in, however, it is convenient to have the Aeroccino +.

Getting a good coffee in Tasmania is not an easy task, (to Don: Tasmania is not a well developed place like the beautiful Boston.) The first important thing in the morning is to find a good coffee, and it has been a challenging task. I've only spotted two Gloria Jeans Coffees in Tasmania, and in some remote towns, there aren't any espresso machines available. Well, I should've carried my Nespresso machine with me for the trip, like Jessica did for her recent trip to Bryon Bay and Gold Coast. (Just a reference to Dave's comment on the other entry, most regular size coffee cost more than A$3.50 (Latte) (to Don: Antony is poor.) here, but that's the weak Australian dollar.)

I miss my Nespresso coffee. The good thing is, I will be back to Sydney soon, it has been a long holiday in Tasmania.

"Beautiful Boston"? Dude, I was there a few years ago, and it was pretty far from beautiful. Do you expect it to be like a desktop background, or something? (I'm not knocking your pad, Don). Plus, the coffee in Boston is just the same as it is in Connecticut, Arizona, or Wisconsin. It's coffee.

All the independent coffee distributors got bought out a long time ago. Now there are just two coffee chains: Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks, the latter of which has nothing available that I can pronounce without feeling ridiculous. Either way, since they're chains, both of them stock the exact same beans and roasters around the country, so to validate Dave's claim, yes, coffee in Boston actually is the same as coffee elsewhere.

And I, for one, would rather have coffee made in my house, but I do like the donuts from Dunkin Donuts. Plus, I'm proud of my transition to x64!

I refuse to comment, on the grounds that I can only say something nasty!!

I admire your reserve, Rev. Dr.

DAVE, my comment was not about your post..LOL!!

It sounds like you did not even check out the link of beautiful Boston.
Since you don't drink coffee, and obviously don't visit a local store... You now quickly conclude only two coffee chains.

Since when do I not go to local stores?
Posted by Don_HH2K on 15 January 2009 4:13 AM.
Yeah, I did look at it. But do you see any "real" people? People who make less than $75,000 a year? Neighborhood's that are full of crack addicts, welfare recipients and other generic rifraff. That is, in my opinion, what makes a city.

And when you visit Boston, you did not see any beautiful parts of it?
