Photo-a-day 243: Pods

20120830-183614.jpg

I was moaning on Tuesday – not least on Twitter – about my inability to make good coffee at home, and as a result, I’ve been given a Nespresso machine. These are some of the pods that go in it.

It’s by far the poshest kitchen gadget I’ve ever owned. I rarely eat in restaurants with hardback menus, yet know I have one in my own home describing the 16 Nespresso “Grand Crus”…!

The coffee is very tasty – but at 30-odd pence per cup, it isn’t cheap!
