Tassimo Vivy (Bosch)
I’ve had several Tassimo’s over the years and like all the others, this one makes a great cup of coffee. It’s fast and fairly quiet and I like the smaller size as it doesn’t take up much room. Make sure you have it close to a water source though as the reservoir is small and only holds about 3-4 cups, but that’s easy to get used to.
Very Happy with this machine! There is no filter to be replaced, and I LOVE that! Although the water tank only holds about 20 oz of water, at least it’s fresh water every 2nd cup of coffee. I use the Gevalia morning roast 12 oz disks and have to add water to make a 2nd cup.
Ninja Coffee Bar
A little bit about me- I am a barista at the local coffee house. I am a huge snob when it comes to coffee, I’ve had beans fresh from the plantations in Honduras. I prefer dark roast or single origin coffees. I have almost every type of coffee brewer- drip, espresso, french press, Keurig, and now the Ninja.
Got my ninja used from the amazon warehouse, still in warranty. Right when I turned it on I saw that darn light I was warned about. Likely the previous owner returned it because of that darn thing.
I like the maker. It’s importabt to find the right grind setting for your coffee. I was using a coarser grind in the beginning and the coffee wasn’t blooming properly. Once I tried a little finer grind it’s great.
Simply “WOW” is the best way to explain our evolution to a true coffee taste difference using this Ratio with an Able Kone, completely will never return to any paper filter, Ratio does either use the Chemex filter (which can be a bit difficult to purchase for fair pricing online) Highly recommend using the Able Kone.
KitchenAid Siphon Brewer
If you read the reviews regarding this pot, you quickly realize that the positive reviews are from people with expectations that differ markedly from those who write the negative reviews. To decide if you want this pot, you have to decide what you want from a coffee pot. This review will (hopefully) help with that.
HERE’S THE SHORT ANSWER –
If you want the kind of EXCELLENT coffee that only a vacuum pot can provide (and don’t mind the little bit of extra clean-up that comes with that), this pot is a steal! If you want to do little more than put pre-ground supermarket coffee and water into a machine, push a switch the night before, and eventually stumble into the kitchen for something hot and brown that will wake you up; you won’t be happy with this pot.
Nesspreso A+GCC1 Evoluo
So excited when I received this yesterday. My friend had a nespresso machine and after she made me a cup of coffee I had to have my own. I was skeptical on the price but this machine makes such delicious frothy coffee. The coffee blends Nespresso has are so good and such a variety. The machine makes some noise when brewing but it’s not too loud.
Awesome. Better than I expected. I augmented an OriginalLine Nespresso with this, and it’s beautiful. Perfect Temperatures, perfect thick coffees with a thick ‘head’ and great espressos (even though it’s strictly speaking a foam head versus cream).
Black Deker Mill Brew
Susan W. Gallagher:
I like this coffee pot. It’s easy to use and easy to clean and makes a good cup of coffee. As far as I can tell, it’s the only grinding coffee pot that doesn’t require you to tear it apart and clean it once a week so it won’t jam, and I like that a whole lot.
I like this unit a lot and it would get 5 stars but for two items. One, you can’t really fill the reservoir with the nearly 13 servings worth of water you need to get 12 full servings of coffee, and two, I had to go through a lot of fretting and internet research in order to figure out how to get rid of the horrible plastic taste.
