The amount of packaging for a cup of coffee is criminal but nobody seems to mind as its fashionable.

As spoken about in the article, it's not just the capsules either, we have elaborate wooden boxes and chrome racks to store them.

I purposely bring in a jar of instant and stand by the kettle listening to them all speaking twaddle about how the Guatemalan has a more refined taste than the Ristretto whilst they try and use the machine that resembles the controls in the Wizard of Oz.
Fully agree, itīs absolute madness not to mention that you can make a far better cup of coffee with a french press for a fraction of the price. What is it they say about a fool and their money...
