    "comes with manual and 2 jars of Nescafé coffee, one never opened, the other barely touched, just want to get rid of it as we don't use it"

    Cant understand why they wouldn't use it?

    I think it's safe to say no sponsors are stocking this item

    I'm on an International forum with mostly Americans.
    Any "Coffee Connoisseur" threads are full of pictures of dripolators and instant coffee with the occasional French Press and Espresso machine.
    Facsimilies of Starbucks are reverentially posted as the epitome of 'high coffee art', and proof of one's moral coffee superiority.

    Interesting to note they're not selling a grinder, wondering what they upgraded to

    Oh all the 'prep' involved, I wonder if it had preinfusion settings? And would it do a good micro foam with the 'recommended' powdered milk?

    I can see Andy putting these up for sale in Bean Bay.....**NOT**. Bahahaha!!

    Would only consider it if it also took International Roast.

    I've always remember this as "international Rust".

    All this aside, they wouldn't have made these units if people were not going to buy them. They may not suit most of us on this forum, however someone is going to buy this and use it and its going to suit their needs. I have an identical twin brother, as much as he is the same as me in every way, he might consider this as he drinks coffee for the pure caffeine and nothing else.... Not that he would buy it, but someone will.

    We called it intestinal rust

    It's funny, people are definitely buying them... What I don't get is that they essentially do the same job as one of those $20 milk 'spinners', but are more complicated, take up more bench space, are fiddly to clean etc.

    I guess the sell is that they make "cafe style" coffee without having to spend as much as say a pod machine or basic breville or sunbeam - and no ongoing costs for pods or ground coffee.

    In a way I suppose they're a good thing - pods are the devil's work and those single thermoblock machines combined with 2kg vacuum-packs of preground Vittoria probably make worse tasting 'coffee' than Neacafe with boiling water and two dessert spoons of sugar.

    They will sell by the bucket load.

    It would have to be enough to buy another house because whatever dwelling I took one of those into would no longer be home!
