As a coffee snob I'm very particular with what I use in both machine and beans. All beans come from reviews based out of coffeereview.com each month. Subjective Flavor and profile decides it for me. I've tried these machines and they just don't cut it (For me). I wish they did. Don't get me wrong...I have a kuerig for certain guests and when in a hurry grind my 7-11 grams of beans and use a filter in it. Like golf I have just about every contraption for coffee. Espresso not so much ( Turkish coffee setup, aeropress, and a crappy breville that will make a good espresso after the 3rd attempt) Really espresso is such an art that I don't have time to get it perfect. If you like the taste from that machine...Great!!! I haven't found a machine yet that will knock the snob out of me from a nice professionally made espresso. For coffee, t'm sure I know much more about it than golf. 100% of the time I use Glass all the way down to the spoon. 75% of the time I use a french press because it's methodical, quick and easy. 20% I use a Cona vacuum because it is by far the best flavor (for me) but takes more time and care than the press. 5% of the time I use various chemex glass.
Along with the Cona Vacuum I will also use a hario Nouveau 5. I prefer the Cona but Hario is just as tasty. For anyone that wants Outstanding coffee I would suggest one of those companies. Hario is Japanese I believe. Not sure where it is manufactured though. They did not sell these in the U.S. I had to get mine through a company in a South Africa. lol
