Ok,it's out and tested and I'm still disappointed. It still doesn't taste like coffee, or maybe doesn't taste enough like coffee. Ugh. Will try again tomorrow, am just too tired now. I made 2 of those small expressos and put them in measuring out the amount so as to lessen the milk but for some reason it's still vanilla cake.
As to the coffee making, Maxine this is for you. So my DH comes in, I explain my predicament, he has to run so shows me how to make the coffee going through it very precisely. He leaves. I turn the machine on, put the capsule in, wait for the light to stop flashing, press the button & get nothing but boiled water! I start panicking thinking I must have broken the machine or something, my sister from Nevada chooses that precise moment to call me, I explain what's going on & very calmly she says "did you push the capsule in all the way"? Ah ha! panic over, I made the coffee but am now left with 4, 2 inch 9x9 coffee coloured sponge cakes
Anyway....... Should I add more coffee?
