I am forever having to go to 7-11 to buy milk. Fortunately it's quite convenient - there's an ATM there, they sell low fat milk, magazines etc. Now they are selling Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee capsules!
With my plans for the Chatty Cafe in the pipeline Biggie suggested that we may need a coffee machine (He asked if they sell them at Costco, which I believe they do). Then while we were out at 7-11 he picked up a pamphlet about this coffee maker. (He's really onto it isn't he?).
The capsules are about 800 yen ($8.00) for 16 capsules. The actual coffee maker is about 15,000 yen ($150.00) and you can order it from 7-11. I'm pretty keen because it looks so simple. No messy filters to clean out, no beans to grind up. They have free samples at my local 7-11. Check it out!
