A few weeks ago I shared a bit about this coffee maker on Instagram stories. I’ve since gotten a few follow up questions about it, so I wanted to create a landing place for a quick reference in case you are in the market. This is an expensive coffee maker, and certainly not something I bought without a great deal of thought and research.
Why did I replace my Keurig with this machine?
I wanted to get away from the pods with the Keurig. And yes, I do know that there is a reusable container to fill with your own coffee of choice when using the Keurig, but it was messier and more tedious than I liked. I also wanted a machine that ground the beans directly before making the coffee for the best taste.
Why did you decide on this machine?
I liked that this machine could do shots of espresso, long coffee, drip coffee, milk-based drinks like lattes and cappuccinos. It can also make iced coffee that isn’t watered down!
Do you like it? Are you happy with your purchase?
I love this machine. The coffee it makes is fresh, rich, and so good. I don’t play around with many other coffee drinks much, but I use the “over ice” feature and “drip coffee” feature very regularly.
Any cons or things you don’t like?
It’s loud and the water reservoir is small. When it needs to be descaled, which is quite often in my case, that process is about 45 minutes long and requires a lot of your attention. These are small cons but nothing that wasn’t expecting based on my extensive google research before making the purchase!
