2 espressos a day for me. About 4 on the weekend.
Vittoria Mountain grown beans when they're half price at Coles which is often.

Wanted to buy  a Jura but the wife wouldn't let me spend more that much.

Brilliant machine MBB. I had a Delonghi before it, paid the same money, peace of junk. My only criticism is it doesn't have a cup warming plate. New models might have them. Just after I bought it, I ended up scoring a 2 drawer Jura cup warmer on Gumtree for $75 (RRP is $400 odd).

4-5 espressos every day, slightly longer shot that usual, no sugar, no grappa. Am using Coffee Mio Arabica (local roaster just around the corner)  beans in my Jura machine, love it.
@Gointocarlton‍  Terrific local roaster is Coffee Mio, I love their Moka Extra beans and I can't say I've ever purchased a bad batch when I can get them.



Being very local to you, fresh is always best!

Agree, I can smell when they are roasting from my back yard. My family has been getting coffee from them donkeys years.

I confess to unabashed, shameless jealousy.

As I read the posts here, I can almost smell the freshly ground and brewed coffee. Magnificent. Enjoy.

Now to go get a bland cup of black tea. **imagine grown man pouting like a 3 year old, dragging his feet as he walks to the kitchen**

Ooh, where are they located??  We recently have started experimenting with different beans.

We have a Saeco Primea Plus Capuccino machine.

Its not a bad unit.  We got it half price on clearance from 3k, to 1.5, so that was handy.  Have had it for 10 years.

It is a bit inconsistent with its milk frothing, and a little bit high maintenance, but I expected nothing less from a coffee machine.  We do use it every morning for the morning though.
