freitasm: If you read the thread you are talking about again you will see that actually the supporters of non-pod systems are the ones that have been strongly replying.
I have had a couple of espresso machines and a couple of pod machines. I like the ease of use, quick consistent results.
I don't think Nespresso has done a good job in social media as you claim. They actually have a lousy Twitter presence and a Facebook presence but most of the times don't reply to questions people post to the them. This is an instant no-no in my books, making it actually a hack job on that.
ajobbins: We have a Saeco automatic machine at home (Grinds it own beans etc) and it blows Nespresso (and most Cafes) out of the water.
I can't drink Nespresso - it always just tastes stale. I don't have milk in my coffee, but if you do, it's probably more tolerable.
