more illy podwater

actually, illy podwater -- it's not really espresso now, is it? -- doesn't seem so bad at 35,000 ft. so i was grateful to fly virgin atlantic last night.

it certainly was pleasant, if not divine, to have some illy and listen to all the cool music available on the noise-canceling headphones. that you could also have as many candied lemon bon-bons as you liked helped too!

one thing i've noticed about all the illy pods i've been served is that the coffee has neither abundant nor long-lasting crema, and the body's quite thin compared to a 'normal' illy espresso. it's a shame really, don't you agree?

i attribute this to the staleness of the pods as much as the pod coffee-making process itself. . .
