Hey mate, happy to say i am 6 months in with mine and it has been smooth sailing.
Your lucky you got a good coffee second try, it took me a whole kilo of beans to get it right!! I was starting to fret before i got myself some quality beans and learned not to bother with the single basket or the dual walls.
Its actually a really good little machine that does what it says. Lets see how many years we get out of it ay, fingers crossed its not another sunbeam :)
