Not really, making coffee is a pretty clean task.

Fingerprints (especially if I ever visit), dust. I've noticed shiny things seem to attract more dust.

Have you tested one of these out yet? Home machines that arent plumbed in tend to have shitty pressure which you need to get a decent espresso shot and to achieve half decent milk.

No Seylana. Your information is wrong..

Plumbing in a coffee machine just means you don't have to refill it.

Pressure comes down to the size of the boiler and heat exchangers and how much it can produce while active. High end equipment usually have either double boilers (1 for steam and hot water and 1 for espresso) or use a large tank with heat exchangers that allow both espresso and frothing of milk simultaneously without pressure being lost.

There are a bunch of other differences but that would require writing an essay.

Any coffee machine in the premium market are commercial grade equipment for home use.

Ultimately I want one of these;

But I don't have 12500$ spare to throw around.

Oh Bain why did I have to see that machine, now I want it :(

I've recently started working in a coffee stand at Melbourne airport and have fallen in love with making coffee. Only started drinking the stuff a few months ago but now I'm hooked. People are very delicate with coffee at the airport, I take a flat white with one sugar, raw sugar is best.

Theres so much to coffee I've learnt, its really interesting. I have pods at home but really only drink coffee when I make it at work.

I had an Espresso in Florence that was the first coffee I ever liked. I think I only liked it because someone dumped a packet of sugar into it though.

I'm glad I had the experience of drinking some Italian coffee, but I still have no real taste for it.

It's that time of the year again folks, limited edition fancy Nespresso pods are available!

Looks like they're all based off the Livanto pod, which is one of the light and sweeter pods that goes well with pastries/oats/toast.

Pretty keen to try them for something different on a relaxing weekend morning, will probably get a sleeve of each.

If you're wondering, the * next to 'Hazelnut' is for 'Hazelnut taste'.
