    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!

    Bought the same one over Christmas and it's great. Still trying to get it dialed in though.

    You will find that even switching beans causes you to have to re-evaluate aspects, but so far I love it!

    Wasn't paying attention and ended up with some of the "boheme" espresso roast from Mount Pleasant. Not my first choice for my morning pour over, but ill survive.

    This baby arrived a couple days ago. TBH when I was unboxing, I was wondering if I wasted my money since some of it seemed... idk, flimsy?

    That feeling disappeared once I used it, what a wonderful piece of machinery. Coffee is good, of course, but its also fast and nearly silent. Would absolutely recommend.

    ^ they're constructed in a basic fashion so that if you ever need to repair or replace anything, it's easy to do so and should last you a very long time. I enjoy mine, quality units to say the least.

    Having used my pour over many times now, all I can say is it makes coffee. It tastes exactly the same as drip, which is perhaps the point. But at least the machine isn't taking up space on our all-too-small countertop and the pour over just sits in the cupboard.

    I didn't see anyone mention this site. I just started buying from them recently and I am impressed. I haven't found good Kona beans outside of Hawaii very often in Calgary. But this is legit. Not as good as direct from Hawaii but it has that subtle flavor with the nice aftertaste that I like. You have to order 4lbs at a time which I don't mind since I drink a ton. It was good enough for me to order their Jamaican Blue Mountain peaberry. I've never actually had JBM coffee before so I'm excited to try. Delivered in less than a week. Using it with my Virtuoso+ and Bonavita machine.

    Pretty cheap for the types/source of beans, how is the roast level? Roast date on the bags?

    I've only had the Kona so far and its a med roast, labelled on the package. Same with the roast date. They even give you a card in the box with the roast date. My JBM arrived on Thursday (21st) and it had a roast date of the 18th. But you're right, the price is almost too good to be true. I had bought Kona from the Nordstrom coffee shop before (a couple years ago) at $40/lbs and I thought it was a decent price. This batch I got from this place is way better than the Nordstrom stuff. And as much as I love the Roasterie, their Kona always look old and dry. Not saying its the best Kona I've had but relative to how difficult it is to get it here in Calgary and its price, its pretty damn good. I saw there is a Kona dark roast available too which I will try next order unless this JBM blows my mind.

    If you order the dark roast Kona and want to sell me a bag, I'd be up for trying it out.

    Have confirmed not a single Swedish person I know has heard of this. Maybe it's a 1900's thing.

    Got a question for the beyond coffee snobs, I know I have been pretty hard core on my single serve coffees for years, but frankly with WFH and the wife drinking coffee again itís getting to the point where I am spending 5-6 bucks a day on god damned Nespresso pods. I maintain it was the right choice for my singular Saturday Sunday AM coffee fix but at my current burn I think hitting Starbucks a few times a day would be cheaper...

    So whatís the way to go for a coffee maker these days? Havenít owned one in years. Figure the savings relative to my current Nespresso burn rate should make this a pretty quick payout unless I ball completely out of control.

    I donít need anything espresso maker crazy, just want to drink decent coffee in quantity that will get me through my day.

    What do I need to buy for this witchcraft, is there more involved that pressing the make button on my Nespresso?

    Do people use coffee makers anymore? I think I still remember my days at Starbucks.

    Does it make better coffee than a cheapie? Idk. I probably couldn't tell in a blind test. I do like this thing though.

    All Moccamasters are the same basic machine, with minor variations. Just figure out if you want glass or insulated carafe, what size, what color, and auto drip-stop or not. Still happy with ours. Would buy again. I would probably go with an auto-drip stop model though, I thought I'd like the switch on the filter basket, as you can control how fast your coffee is going through/let it bloom/etc, but its kind of turning out to just be a pain in the butt.

    I have a mochamaster as well. With a 40 oz insulated carafe. I am very happy with mine, have had it 6 years. The difference I find compared to cheapie versions the temperature is much more consistent. The auto-drip stop model would be the only thing I would want in addition to the version I have. I guess the other advantages are that the boiler is super fast (6 minutes for a full pot, even after 6 years of use) and quiet, althought those are less of a concern for me.
