New era in home coffee » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING DeLonghi has an exceptional new addition to its popular Nespresso range with the cyber coffee maker. The EN90APLUS is proof that coffee machines do not have to take up significant bench space. Despite its ultra compact size it will consistently deliver cafe-style coffee. This machine also comes complete with a bonus large capacity aeroccino plus, which can whip up enough milk for two creamy cappuccinos, rich lattes or even iced frappes with the cold milk frothing function. The secret to the Nespresso system is the pre-measured capsules which remain sealed right up until the coffee is prepared to ensure the freshest brew possible. Added features include high 19-bar pump pressure and thermoblock heating element, a functional handle allowing for easy coffee preparation and ejection of used capsule to a concealed collection container, removable one litre water tank and back-lit control button. The DeLonghi EN90APLUS Essenza Nespresso is available for $349 and comes complete with bonus tasting pack of 12 Nespresso capsules, and an aeroccino plus.

Paul Myors, an energy efficiency expert at EnergyAustralia, says almost 30 per cent of homes use the dryer at least once a week. ''In fact, some households use them for every load,'' he said. ''A standard clothes dryer run twice a week will cost youupto$70ayeartorun,andcan generate up to 400kg of greenhouse emissions. ''But the solution is simple and it's been in many back yards for the past 62 years.'' The outdoor clothesline is the simplest and cheapest form of solar power under the sun. Even during wet weather, clothes can effectively dry on a line or rack under the cover of a veranda, carport or garage. And it's much gentler on clothes and will prolong their life. If there is no choice but to use the clothes dryer, there are ways to make it more efficient. Choose a high star-rating model when buying a new one. Dryers that automatically sense when clothes are dry are safer and save electricity. Make sure the filter is cleaned regularly; this will allow the dryer to run more efficiently and improve safety as clogged filters are a fire hazard.
