The coffee machine has been a real hit. I have decided I like the three strongest Nespresso blends best, but I cannot decide between them. The Ristretto and Roma blends include some Robusta beans, but this does not diminish the quality of the coffee they produce. The second strongest, Arpeggio, is Robusta-free, and is also a damned-fine cup of espresso. I can heartily recommend the Nespresso system, and my machine in particular, they make really good coffee in a style which suits the idle.
