The Nano Of Espresso Makers - Gizmodo

The Nano Of Espresso Makers - Gizmodo: "Nespresso is a company that makes damn fine espresso machines at not-so-damn fine prices. Until now, that is. The Nespresso Essenza C90 Espresso machine is a single serve espresso machine that produces big flavor with small results. "

Hmmm, Beats the crap out of my Lego Bot for sure!

Too many retarded graphical jokes doing the rounds

You hear stories about terrorists passing around encoded messages using steganography
to conceal their message in seemingly innocent images.

Given the number of lame-ass 'jokes' doing the rounds on email at the
moment that contain images, I have to assume the armageddon is fast

Here's one I got today. See if you can detect/decypher the cypher.

It is possible to take the coffee prima donna thing too far and Barefoot Coffee Roasters did it. They refuse to serve me espresso shots to go.

The last thing you want to be doing is coming between a man and his espresso shots at 8:30 in the morning.

I don't care if it grates your barista sensibilities, I want my damn espresso in a little paper cup and I will have it in a little paper cup.

I'm going to use it to make Americano when I get to the office so what's your damn problem. Would you rather have me buy an Americano that goes
cold and requires microwaving when I get to the office? No, I thought not.

Don't make me go to Starbucks bitch!
