Saw this in a coffee shop and it looks very intriguing but couldn't taste it. Attributes I liked:

1) Grounds go in the filter and then are compressed somewhat by a sort of spring loaded tamper
2) Brew a cup or brew a carafe, just put amount of coffee in you want and then select size
3) Very narrow footprint
4) Price wasn't too bad ($180ish)
5) A quick (unscientific) test with a meat thermometer indicated a consistent 202-204 water temperature coming out during the full carafe setting

One thing I did not like is even with the drip tray removed, a lot of mugs are going to be too tall to fit in there.

Anyway, haven't found any reviews yet, let alone any from trusted resources.

Maybe looking to get a Bonavita, but the ability to just do 10 ounces at a time, or a whole pot, in one machine is very appealing.
