For obvious reasons I can't tell you whether you would enjoy the taste of the coffee produced by this machine. I can however express my personal opinion, of the machine and its abilities so here it is.
I bought this machine during a half-price sale at Staples for £50 because I thought it would be an interesting thing to review, and I hadn't seen any other reviews of this online. It's a different take on a single-cup coffee machine, as it uses coffee made using the current fad of mixing in Micro Grind whole-beans with freeze dried instant. In my opinion this is the Emperor's Clothes of coffee, a way to re-market instant coffee at crazily high prices. My taste buds are not great. I can't identify a Sumatran from a Columbian from an Ethiopian coffee by taste. But I can spot the difference between an instant, a filter and an Americano. The coffee this machine produces tastes to me like good quality instant.
I've pretty much finished my 'free' refill cartridge now, and I won't be buying another. If the price of refills was more realistic, say £5, then I may well have stuck with this machine a bit longer. It is convenient and neat and the coffee whilst not great is passable, certainly respectable enough for me to quickly gulp down before setting off for work.
However the machine is now back up to £100 and the refills are £13…..so at that price it's a complete non-starter. I suspect that without a massive price shift, this product's days are numbered. Expect to find these cluttering up the bargain bins at your office supplies retailer in a few months.
