Might get more responses if you run this as a poll as opposed to a pole. My coffee machine doesn't have a pole in it...

BTW, DeLonghi Beans to Cup machine. Superb and now on my second generation one!

I use a Cafelat Robot for the last maybe three years. Baratza Sette 270WI grinder. Poor man's expresso setup. Previously to that a Flair PRO ll. I heat the basket on my water steamer prior to each dose.

I only have one cup in the morning. Add a little sugar and milk with that and I’m good-to-go😉 9067C35C-BBFC-4E8A-B50B-6176185F0F47.jpeg

A Pole I can get into!

We have been rocking a Jura Superautomatic Classic S9 for a few years now. Love it.

For when we want drip vs. espresso based drinks, we used to use a Cuisinart Grind & Brew, but after 15 years, it gave up, so we recently bought a Moccamaster setup and a Breville grinder. I don't quite have the grind down perfectly yet... We are working on it. I do like the ritual of grinding the fresh beans, the smell, the process... But the coffee isn't quite perfect yet.

A couple of years ago, Tchibo wanted to enter the US market & offered this machine at a big discount, with a few bags of coffee:

It actually does a pretty nice job of making an americano style cup. It is quite loud, but is easy to clean, and has a small footprint, so we use it in our camper, or caravan, as some of you may call it. Also keeps us from having to bring another machine in and out of the house when we travel.

A few years ago when I got sick of using my Aeropress every morning I googled coffee makers and the testing I saw said that the actual temp the water is introduced at was key. There were two that passed that test, one was like $400 and made in the Netherlands and the other was $100 called the Bonnavita. Cause I'm cheap guess which one I went with and use to this day? I kept the Aeropress for traveling though, nothing like going into some remote gas station and asking if you can bum some hot water.....

My youngest son who is a coffee snob won't drink my coffee when he comes to visit but the end result, using organic dark roasts, drank black and hot works for me.

Your grinder looks like mine except for the name. Looks like Sage=Breville... I never got the hang of using an espresso machine.

Sage is the UK name for breville. It can be very frustrating at times trying to get the setup right, especially if the beans are not up to scratch. I recently threw out two new packets of beans because they wouldn't brew properly.

I used to have a Gaggia classic or whatever it was called.
These days I just use a grinder and a French press/Cafetiere.
My kitchens too small and I don't really have the space for an Espresso machine

I must have read the same review.

Bonnavita tastes great, but the cap is awful. Drips, more than pours into a cup.

Older Silvia that I converted to PID temperature controller and a DP64 grinder. Why? Because I value value, and I prefer industrial robustness over electronic features on an appliance that's made of chocolate. It took many months of fiddling with a bottomless portafilter to (mostly) get rid of channeling, but now that I have the espresso is very tasty.

I use a 1Zpresso JX-PRO and an Aeropress for my regular coffees.

Upgraded from a Breville Barista Express to a Barista Pro. My wife was using the Express to much in her bakery to make Espresso marshmallows and so I bought myself an upgrade. Took a little bit to get them dialed in but once they were, I levelled up my addiction for an amazing Americano.
