Negative Product Points
Tamper that comes with isn't very good. I bought a new one that works better. It took me a bunch of runs to figure out the correct tamp pressure, and grind setting. I don't know that I like the basket that was provided with it. Bought a KRUPS filter that fits, but I can't get it to work as good as the one provided with the machine. Still working through it. I just think that the whole thing should be a lil easier in figuring out.
I am using a Capresso Infinity Conical Burr Grinder- And I love it.. Last night, I went through a lot of beens trying to find this machine's sweet spot. I also read a reccomendation to purchase a KRUPS 2 filter basket- I did that. Tried it, and I still haven't been able to find a sweet spot with that basket. SO FAR, the one provided with the machine works the best for me- Still making small adjustments.
I like the look of the machine and the taste of the shots from the machine are good. With a good Crema.. sometimes maybe too much.
I am still trying to figure the whole thing out- and will update this posting as I go along. I am new at this- and have been following other postings.
I reccomend looking online for bed bath and beyond coupons. I found one.. .printed out and saved 80 bucks! Do that!
Great... And I know that bed bath and beyond has no hassle returns-- so if I want to bring it back... I can if I'm unhappy.
