Descaled our coffee machine again a couple of days ago. Does make sense in preventing it from becoming wrecked by calcium (limestone?) deposits on the metal heating elements, but as long as the first sniff at a freshly opened packet of ground coffee elicits close to a "yuck!" reaction, does it really make any significant difference? :annoyed2:

We're still floundering around when we buy our coffee, and switched to the other supermarket's brand in our "shopping mall", as my wife is of the opinion that their coffee powder smells "less vile" than the other supermarket's - how far have our expectations deteriorated!

Nah, since returning to the eastern Atlantic region (1975) it's been normal tobacco. In college in the US, the "Gold" bit as far as I can remember had more to do with a north-western Mexican city ...

Ah. It was Colombian Gold for us in Seattle in 1975.

Put some Colombian Black Gold Coffee Beans in the espresso machine this morning. Later when we're done with coffee, I'm going to give the machine an overhaul, oil up the gears and clean it out, and run the descaling cycle.

I’ve actually been replacing a cup of coffee with tea everyday. Still enjoying my Highlander Grog and Irish Cream though!

My wife noticed that next week, one of the coffee brands we have used will be on sale at one of our two reguarly-visited supermarkets. If the smell of the coffee powder is yuck, at least we can try to pay less for it.
