Review: Nespresso take a giant leap forward with the futuristic VertuoPlus

Such a substantial departure from the long-established pods that have been churned through Nespresso machines for years is a bit of a risk for such a dominant company. Introducing their new Vertuo line-up earlier this year represented a huge leap for the brand, presenting several models – some made by Breville and DeLonghi – onto the market which make use of the much larger, fatter and refined VertuoLine capsules. It’s said to be just another step towards the perfect single-serve coffee, with a decent range of capsules (hopefully that’ll be built upon in 2018) suited to various tastes no doubt gathered by the company through years of consumer research....

Review: Coca-Cola’s sugarless, coffee-infused soda is actually quite nice

Coca-Cola have been on a bit of a resurgence as of late.

Yep, it still has some bad stuff in it but for those watching their weight it was a step forward without sacrificing on taste. Now Coca-Cola Australia have went and launched what is perhaps their riskiest product yet, without going to fruity route. Now we’re the testing ground for Coca-Cola Plus Coffee No Sugar, another terrible name but a drink that isn’t without its merits.... Read More | Share it now!

On the Shelf: Aussielent – putting the powdered meal replacement to the test

I adore food. I love to eat. On occasion, I even enjoy cooking. I’m enamoured with burgers and burritos, and I’m Italian, so my appetite for pizza and pasta is commensurate with my heritage and then some. A terrible roadblock to that problem is that I’m prodigiously lazy. I consider food preparation for breakfast and lunch mundane at best, and I regard cleaning with a casual loathing....
