Coffee machines


#1

First time purchaser, looking at spending around $200 not sure what to get, looking at one with pods/capsules for the convenience, maybe nespresso inissia or u milk.


Any thoughts appreciated.

I’ve had my Nespresso citiz or whatever it’s called for over a year. It was about $500 but I think you can get them much cheaper now. I still use it everyday and I love it. Easy to use.

I've also got the Nespresso Citiz. Great little machine! Highly reccommend.

Aeropress for $50.

Spend the rest on a good grinder.

Kamira is a small stovetop stainless steel espresso. Got one on ebay for $160 after my breville gave up. Works well, haven’t mastered it yet though

Aero press.

With a nom de plume like cafegerat, we should be asking you the questions.

Agree. Grinder and a french press are the way to go if you're looking at spending under 4 figures. Go for a "burr-mill" type grinder. Blade style or chopping grinders will burn your beans and give you an average mill. I had the entry level one a while ago from Breville. Made great grounds but died after 18 months of (very heavy) use. I think it was around $250.
This may help you too:

I found in the times I was using it I became a tragic caffeine addict and enjoyed every moment of it. I have since learned to tone it down a little.

This is a Moka Pot, and best coffee I have ever made.
I bought an expensive auto machine for the office and it makes ok coffee but unless you spend time cleaning and maintaining it is crap.
Moka Pot is so easy, but get a real good grinder and buy good coffee, don't fall for cheap ■■■■■.

I caved and got the Aldi pod machine. $90, pods are cheapish, no issues so far.

Knowing me, I'ld press down on that aeropress thingo and have the cup slip from underneath and there'd be coffee everywhere.
