    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.
