Keurig recalls 6.6 million home coffee brewing machines

Cost is exactly the issue. For the cost of a basic Nespresso machine, you can get a basic espresso machine that does not have the steam pressure necessary to make a consistent espresso, and you have to do your own grinding (burr grinder adds more to the total cost), and you either have to use the usually inadequate steam wand in that machine to make the milk or else you need yet another appliance of some kind. And of course you need the counter space and a way to keep your open bag of coffee beans fresh. And don’t forget cleaning all those appliances each time!

Sometimes the time, energy and financial cost of making something perfectly isn’t worth it…sometimes good enough really is good enough.


I would love a turbo Corvair. Oh, yuss. Beautiful looking cars.

Wat? Fuuuuuuucccccck. Mind you, I think it was Liptons chanced their arm with instant milky tea in the UK in the 90s. Christ, that stuff was bad. Worse than American tea, even… /s

I bet you’re not worried about terrorists either, you commie traitor.
