We recently invested in a Nespresso machine for the office, so this article makes me happy we did :)

Buy the black ones, Ristretto. Awesome coffee that will get you up to speed in the morning.
We started with a selection and I'm working my way up to them. I must admit, work and coffee don't go well for me as I find it very hard to concentrate after a strong coffee. I'm much more of a tea drinker, which I drink by the bucket ;-)
In my early working life I had a period when I had up till 8 of those strong ones a day and I must admit, with the heart racing not much got done. I loved the taste though. Nowadays I only get one in the morning (and maybe one after lunch) and then I stick to tea (Rooibos) or Coca-Cola Zero. But if you get the chance, try it. They are great with cardamom crisp rolls.
I shall! I think we have some in the pack, so I'll have to look for for some cardamom crisp rolls to go with them :)

I used to work in a call centre and the work was so boring, I made up for it by drinking coffee all day. I used to be so in such a bad mood by the time I got home and that's why I switched back to tea and realised coffee is for pleasure, not general consumption :)
@jon I like the ritual of making coffee the hard way. At home I have a moka coffee maker and I've been trying for years to get more crema from the espressos that I make. It seems like an impossible goal but pretty distracting.
I think more than 3 cups of coffee per day will outweigh the benefits of it. I usually stick to 2-3 cups a day, but drink a lot of tea instead after that.
I had a doctor that said there are substantial benefits with drinking coffee but when drinking more than 2 cups (mugs) per day the stress on the heart is something to take into account. @Rastin,agree, 2-3 cups are a pure joy, the ones after just gives you what @Jon mentioned, a bad mood.

@Rastin and @Jon, what are your best coffees, and how do you do them?
