Default Nespresso machines

Hi all,

I am thinking about buying a Nespresso machine as a gift, does anyone know if you get a pack of capsules with it when you buy it as I don't want to buy something that they can't use immediately? Anyone know? and are they simpleton proof?

bloody hell, nice gift...!

if you're buying it here, the nespresso shop stocks the capsules so you can get them at the same time...if it's in the uk, as far as i know, the machines don't come with the coffee, but you can get a starter pack for about £70 i think, which has loads of different types of coffee (well, you could in harrods) or you can order direct from nespresso online...

it is so easy to use, defo simpleton proof...!

MM, xx

<<Would like to be kittycat's friend if this is the kind of top gift she gives!>>

I know the ones in Dubai Mall come with a couple of pods and you can buy extra supplies. They are definitely fool proof - open up the lid, pop the pod in, shut the lid, press the button and by jingo, a nice cup of coffee.

Mmmmmm. Am heading to Dubai this weekend and might have to treat myself.

Ok confirmed I will order it tonight when I get home

My mum doesn't know how to switch on a computer so either my grumpy father will do it or I can do it from here when they run out Why on earth don't they just sell them in supermarkets? seems a bit daft to me! Anyway thanks for the feedback ladies.

Tillybean- generous to a fault Im afraid! Its why Im always skint!

nespresso are, apparently, very precious about the quality/freshness of their coffee(!) so only certain outlets are permitted to stock the capsules...in the uk, buying direct from them online is the best way i think unless you happen to live somewhere that stocks them...

You get a fair amount of blue mountain coffee for that amount.

Yes, you should get a starter pack with it which includes one capsule of each of the full range and a couple of the special edition ones - the Indira is fabulous

Seconded from above, just order capsules online (or by phone) for delivery

I was at the Vietnam Coffee Festival in Buon Ma Thuot earlier this year.

I'm not a coffee drinker but it is... how can I put it?... robust.

I think that was the Indonesians, but the best weasel shit coffee in the world is indeed from Vietnam.

Never heard of nespresso but then I had never heard of a band called Hurts until recently. As I personally hate expresso and Turkish coffee, it sounds bloody awful.
