Need Purchase Advice

Postby timcahiu » Thu Sep 08, 2016 2:21 am

I am not a coffee/espresso drinker, but my wife definitely is. I am looking for a gift for her and could use some good advice on what device to buy.

She has been using the Cuisinart SS700 Keurig machine for years. She is on the second one and has loved it, but it is yet again now brewing very slow and incomplete cups. Flow seems fine without a k-cup inserted, but its becoming a major issue. I also bought her the Keurig Rivo expresso machine in 2015. She has used it a few times, but not very much. I think the "multiple steps" part makes it less attractive to her. The convenience of the Keurig system has been a big hit with her, but I think she is tired of the slow brew thing happening again.

So I am looking for a new idea. I want something that's not too much of a pain to learn how to use and produces very good coffee for her. I know she is open to going back to traditional brewing so I wanted to check the best options available. She uses the single cup a lot, but does like to be able to make more when we have guests.

I had heard good things about the Ninja Coffee bar, but know little about it.

Any suggestions for a nice setup?

I have a Nespresso machine make great coffee and easy to use. The pods are a little pricey and can only be bought online.
