    Now what are you sayin Doc, judges can be bought? :twitch

    We tried one of Aldis wines that apparently got a medal or two and personally i wouldnt say it was of being up there. :puke2

    Still, their coffee at $12 a kg is good value. Beats in value the $45 delivered boutique coffee i was paying for.

    I'm tempted to try it, but I've just spent a month drinking junk from a local cafe that sold it's unwanted covid stock - it was oily bitter rubbish that made lavazza taste good. I was thinking the grinder had died and was researching a replacement , but figured I'd try old faithful again- by the 3rd cup I was back to my old grinder settings and out flowed this smooth sweet liquid.......

    Sooo.....perhaps after a few more months of you guys saying how good aldi coffee us I might make the trip to buy some. But my taste buds need some recovery time first

    We have discovered Aldi coffee beans. After making lots of tweaks to the machine, we really like the brew!

    Try it!

    If you ever get back to QLD... bring beans.

    Apparently your life may depend on it according to medical sources.

    Then we can all enjoy a medically supervised coffee or two :-)

    I guess by the emoticon that you were being facetious. I didn't get it though, sorry, I'm a bit slow. Maybe you don't like milk?

    Ah, I like a deep froth, it's actually less milky. I like to mix it up, going from expresso to macchiato to my deep caps. I don't do latte much.
    Been getting rid of old beans lately by mixing in half-half with fresh ones. Makes a nice flavour and doesn't waste beans. Been experimenting with almond and coconut milk too. Almond ain't bad.

    I was walking down one of the few streets of Bicheno today. Stopped off for a coffee. They had Huskee keep cups made out of recycled coffee husks. Supposed to retain heat like double walled cup. Robust enough to throw in my pannier. I be having one of those.

    It wasn’t a bad coffee, but by the look on the barristers face I wasn’t the first one that had asked her if she had a tasty one
