Photo-a-day 243: Pods

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 5 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 5 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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!
