3.0 out of 5 stars LC awesome, DVD shoddy, 8 April 2009
I was lucky enough to see Mr. Cohen on his summer 2008 tour, and looked forward to this DVD as a memento. While Cohen and his band turn in a superb performance here -- as they reportedly did throughout the tour -- this DVD is a letdown.

Firstly, I was surprised to receive an NTSC DVD from Amazon UK. Fortunately, I have a multi-system DVD player and TV, as most people probably do, but I'm sure there will be at least some disappointed customers out there.

Actually, I prefer the look of it to the Senseo, particularly as the Mokabista gives you a bit more room for two coffee cups, or a taller mug if you prefer. The Mokabista also comes with all necessary pod holders -- one for a regular crema coffee, one for a double crema (or the bigger cappuccino or chocolate pods), and one for espresso -- whereas Senseo owners had to shell out extra for an espresso holder. The clincher is that the Mokabista has a steam nozzle for making real cappuccino, or dispensing hot water for tea, which no other pod machine has.
