    We bought this ages ago, so I'm sure there are much better ones now:

    $300 and it doesn’t make the coffee for you?

    Yes. The one Canadian Tire carries and more recently, Costco. I think it's a Cuisinart.
    Actually, I'm getting deja vu. Dig back a couple pages and I'm sure I've mentioned this before.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    This one can be had for under $400... if you haven’t ordered from 8 ounce before... first order coffee, use 10% discount on grinder order

    Do you need it for espresso? If its for coffee, just buy a $100 burr frinder from crusinart or soemthing.

    Baratza Encore seems to be the go-to entry level grinder

    $300 is barely the tip of the iceberg. But if you save yourself $5/day going to Phil and Sebastian, $2k worth of espresso gear pays itself off pretty quickly

    the thing is, people spend $2k, and then still spend $5/day. Because who drinks only one coffee a day?

    My sister bought an Encore yesterday. Coming from a Vario and Commandante, I'm impressed with the grind distribution of the Encore at its fine to medium settings. Easily the best electric grinder for $200.

    Can you use it with a single wall filter basket? Ah I may have already asked this. I don't think you can. My hunt continues...

    Great idea. I'll probably do this, but buy the Encore. If after a year or two I decide I want to be a coffee hardo, then I'll probably switch up.

    If you’re looking for an excuse to replace your old machine as well, I’d highly recommend this:
    https://www.breville.com/us/en/produ...ee/bdc650.html

    Adjustable burr grinder and maker all in one. Also supports single cup brewing if you don’t want to make a full pot.

    Once you figure out the settings that work for you, it makes a very consistent and excellent pot/cup of coffee. bonus is that you don’t have yet another small appliance taking up space.

    I am likely going to replace the drip coffee maker we have as well, as my wife wants to be able to still be able to make a normal pot of coffee and not mess around with something like pour over. @sabad66 I almost pulled the trigger on that yesterday actually, but decided not to for the following reasons: I have concerns (perhaps unfounded) about maintenance, cleaning, and reliability of something like that; additionally, if we decide we want to buy an espresso machine next year, then I'll still have to buy a grinder.

    On that note, I'm likely going to pick up a Moccamaster... does anyone have a better alternative I should be looking at? These seem to be pretty highly regarded (commensurate with the cost I suppose).

    Fuck since getting this unit, I am drinking like a minimum 3 double shots a day. I am getting my espresso game on point now. It was a bit of a learning curve but now every pull is beautiful! I can't honestly say I have had a better one anywhere. I am sure though that is just because I haven't experienced the right places yet, but I don't care. I have zero regrets buying this machine!

    I actually had those same concerns after reading reviews (moreso the reliability), but since i got mine with Air Miles i figured it was worth the risk. i've used mine at least once daily for 1.5 years so far and no issues so maybe reliability is not as bad as reviews say. Maintenance wise i've descaled it with vinegar probably 8 times (it tells you when it's due) and i clean the grinder parts about every month or so. But yeah if you're going to get espresso machine anyways probably not worth investing $300 for a drip machine.

    I don't know much about these other brands mentioned but they don't look cheap. I have an older Delonghi Magnifica and it's bullet proof. I convinced a friend to buy one a few years ago and at that time Costco carried it. Something between $1k and $1.2k
    It solves your grinder issue because it grinds the beans fresh every time (which is probably 70% of the reason its coffee is so good). 10+ years with zero mechanical issues. Simple de-scaling called for about 2-3x per year.

    That's not far from the truth for me before work from home. At least I saved $5/day on the first coffee, then I could do $3 drip or even office coffee for the 2nd and 3rd cups.

    Turns out it's sold out at 8oz and Bed Bath Beyond. Just decided to go with Amazon (could have got the white one from 8oz, but we aren't white appliance people).
