Bottom Line: If you absolutely want the best "just coffee", this is your machine.  Ultra low maintainence, quick heat up time and the machine recovers quickly.
Positive Product Points

Quick, easy to use, inexpensive, almost foolproof and produces a superior product vs a drip machine.

Negative Product Points

None so far.

Detailed Commentary

I mostly drink Americanos, so the real need for a high end espresso machine is not there for me at least for now.  What I do want is a much better cup of coffee than produced by drip machines, many of which cook the coffee after brewing.  I saw this reviewed and went to Seattle Coffee Gear's website and watched the video and ordered one off the site.

I grind my beans just before brewing and have been very pleased with the results of the finished product.  When we get visitors at the house, they are always offered a cup of coffee and using the Aeropress, I can make them a drink quickly.  I use a induction hob to heat the water.  It will come up to temp in less than 1 1/2 minutes.  Much quicker for the first cup from a drip machine and no wasted coffee.

Grind the beans, measure the grounds into the Aeropress, pour in the correct temp water, stir, wait a few seconds and press out a very smooth- rich cup of coffee.

My wife only drinks milk based coffee, so I use my Saeco machine to froth the milk and then press the coffee into the milk pitcher.  If I have my timing right, she can have her drink out in less than 2 minutes.

Cleaning is a breeze.  Take the bottom off, keep the filter for later use after a quick rinse and push the puck out.  Rinse the plunger and you are ready to make more.

Buying Experience

I ordered from Seattle Coffee Gears website.  They shipped quickly and the product arrived in less than 1 week.  I did also watch their video on this product.  There was no personal contact.  Seattle Coffee Gear produced the results they promised through their follow-up e-mails and produced a tracking number for me to follow the shipment.
