I'm still in the middle of giving up my Coke Zero/Diet Pepsi, we have a sodastream so during the week i'll just get some cold water, add some lemon juice and then carbonate that...i try to only drink the pop during weekends

Bit pricey for me. Are they worth it?
They work well, it's helped my brother completely kick his soda habit and he's drinking 2 bottles of carbonated water a day now...I'll also mix oj and water and carbonate it among other things. I like the fact i can make different types of drinks and i always find the store bought ones have way too sweet.

Well in that case I will consider buying one. Perhaps I can try it with the roasted barley to see if I will enjoy the taste.
