That's the pressure it operates at. 18 bars x 14.7 gives you pounds per sq inch, so around 266lbs/sq inch in old money! Bet you're even more impressed with it now!

I have to say though, that the Nescafé here in Spain is marginally better than the Nescafé in the UK............

From the taste of Nescafé, I understand why one religious group describes coffee as the urine of Satan.

So far, it's one of the worst instant coffees I have had the misfortune to taste.

I had a delicious coffee down on the coast in Fuengirola today!
Normally when you drink it con leche is a bit like washing up water, this one was strong enough to make your hair curl.....

Nescafe market quite a few different types of coffee with varying flavours throughout the world, right through from dark and bitter to mild and golden, so are we to assume that they are all devil's pee pee ?

Nestlé claims that 3,000 cups of Nescafé are drunk every second
Someone must like it! Sobre gustos no hay nada escrito. Each to his own, I guess.

REFERENT TO NESCAFÉ

I must also say that " Nescafé " belongs to the group " Nestlé ", a Swiss company founded by a German

Nescafé is not a Spanish company

The fact that in any Italian motorway cafe I can get a consistently better brew says a lot about the Spanish attitude. And the point here is consistency.
Well, but there are many opinions. For example, British chef Marco Pierre White not have a good opinion of the motorways cafe of UK
