I suggest you stay with actual espresso and away from International "coffee drinks". You would be taking a backward step to Nespresso. When you are ready for a change move up to an E61 HE machine and Italian grinder and accept that great coffee requires human input.
Needless to say I'm in the industry and a coffee snob! (Aussie coffee forum).
As I grind my coffee way to early for me this morning

Can you be more specific on what this E61 machine is for us Nespresso users?

Anyway it confirmed my pledge that I made years before that instant coffee would never pass my lips!!!

Bruce we still have a Sunbeam and I can now get a great flat white out of it with oh so smooth crema.

I am worried though. We are visiting friends at Christmas - they just moved to Bellhaven, North Carolina and they tell me that there is only one cappuccino machine in the whole town!!! She is an American who has lived in Aus for at least 20 years, he is an Aussie and even she is bemoaning the "stuff" that the restaurants label as coffee after being a fully paid up member of the Aus (and Kiwi) coffee culture club.

That aside, it will be great to get a glimpse of a tiny section of the ICW that is such a feature of this forum - I guess with a beer in my hand, rather than a coffee..........

Life is not the same without Nespresso. But I wouldn't leave without my PFDs.

I don't know about everyone else but for my old boat it's TOOLS
It's like my first several cars ( until I could afford a decent one ) I didn't go anywhere without a full tool box .

************************************************** *****


More specifically an E61 is an certain type of espresso machine with an "E61 group head" which has been around for 50+ years. Here's a link if anyone is interested:

http://www.fivesenses.com.au/blog/20.../e61-grouphead

Getting back to the OP my must haves on a boat, along with two espresso machines (one for the pilothouse and one for the galley) and some great Colombian coffee beans, would be fishing and diving gear.

So, now that you have opened that lid, what, specialty, "neat little gadget" tool do you have that others say, "I gotta get me one of those?"

That is our boat, for sure. That and my wife's stand up paddle board. She is grumpy until it is in the water and often heads out for a morning paddle with her travel coffee mug strapped to the board.

Hope the coffee helps keep her sane....

Paddle boards around here have become the new PWCS worthy of a short boating career.

Many are rentals only making it worse as they don't have the area restrictions the PWCS have.

Looks like fun though..wish your wife the best....but boaters are becoming aggressive towards them like years ago with PWCs....

Yea, Karen wants to get one for sure. Just haven't taken the time to learn about them to know what to get yet.

I've gotta have tunes when I cruise and fish, so my tablet or ipod are important to me. I have a nice stereo with bluetooth so I can enjoy great music. If I'm going for several days, some good IPAs and good food are essential to happy boat life. I don't like to go hungry or thirsty while I float. It's a good thing I like to cook.

Having good friends and my wife along for the ride makes it special, but sometimes that's not possible so I try to make do when I have to cruise or fish solo. I like the fact that my boat is very manageable when single-handing, so even if company is along, I don't need to bother them with maritime responsibilities when we're coming or going.

Speaking of responsibilities, the most important thing I feel I need when boating is sobriety and a clear head. If I can't keep focused on the responsibilities of safe boating, I shouldn't (and won't) be out there. But that doesn't mean I can't enjoy those IPA's when we're docked safely.

Good question Grae, but I agree with your comment re capsule versus more human input - and choice. Besides, they are so damn precious as to where you can get those pods here in Brisbane We just luuurve our De Longe Espresso machine, and like to experiment with different beans. For an NZ connection, just for old times sake, we call it 'Mr Lange' (pron. Longey)...you'd probably get that, I think. Vale the David...
