We take our home/office (team of 6) coffee seriously - clients and visiting reps appreciate getting away from Nescafe instant (gets lots of unsolicited compliments).

We use a Dualit (https://www.nisbets.co.uk/dualit-3-i...5-33b436c50041) 'Italian style' mini coffee machine - replaced every couple of years or so but it does get some hammer - with a variety of ground coffees (all get to choose and even do their own mixes - my favourite,normally, a 2:1 belnd of Illy black and Waitrose Expresso as an Americano). We have an an ex-Costa girlie who does much of the coffee, and 'her indoors' got 'coached' by Mr Worrall Thompson's barista of the day.

All in all, still cheaper than the Nespresso solution, a bit of a talking point and damn fine coffee that most people notice and appreciate.
