    Be careful with decaff... there is a horrible chemical used to adjust the beans to decaff.. some brands are supposedly decaffeinated through water.. we buy the beans that are supposedly water decaffeinated. They reckon the chemical is negligible afterwards but the documentary I watched regarding the decaff pelrocess put me off decaff as healthy option permanently. I will never knowingly drink decaff again unless its water treated...

    I was also drinking copious amounts like you thinking it was ok because it was decaff..

    We have a Tassimo machine which is okay - Mr Chook loves his lattes but I haven't yet found a coffee type that I like more than a good quality instant.

    I used to have one of those yellow drip filter things (cost next to nothing) which made amazing coffee - you just put a filter paper and ground beans in to it and pour over water and it dripped in to the mug. Then the dog got it and it never worked properly after it had been chewed.

    My trusty Philips still works splendidly, but it's white in colour and is showing signs of age, so I'd like to change it. I only use my coffeemaker in the morning on workdays, and probably twice on my days off, so I don't need a super heavy-duty unit. I'm looking at a small pump system.
    I have heard DeLonghi or Krups are reliable or similar machine like on cozzy .. I'd like to stick with the organic beans and powder we use for cafetiere coffee.

    I have a Dualit, lovely machine makes good cappuccino and use LavAzza.
    Many moons ago I worked for Kenco, my office was above the roasting floor. The coffee maker was outside my door and we always had coffee beans straight from the 'floor'. Unfortunately I had trouble out and about when buying a cup of coffee as everything else tasted terrible.

    I agree. Decaf always give me reflux and an acid stomach. No matter how great the beans are

    I use a French press with 6 tablespoons of extra dark for two large mugs of coffee.
    Quick cheap and strong........ there's a joke there somewhere.
