Kat, what happened to the customer that made you decide to discontinue
carrying this machine? ο»Ώ

SchneiderMan says:

It’s crap, makes crap coffee compared to the Nespresso.

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

I love the Arpeggio (purple) and Gail likes the Roma. – Kat

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

I’m a goblin! πŸ˜‰ – Kat

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

You pull your preferred shot volume and then add water to make up the
difference / reach your goal size πŸ™‚ – Kat

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

We don’t carry this guy; we used to and actually had a customer accident
with it so decided to discontinue for liability reasons. Sorry πŸ™ – Kat

J John says:

Now i know what volume a shot is best. I will try 30ml shot for each 4oz
water and see how this will be as i like medium coffee best. cheers for the
wonderful help.

Barry S says:

Nespresso is fake compared to real espresso!!

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

Personally, I prefer shot + water vs. a lungo. I’d pull the number of shots
you want and then add hot water – Kat

dbph2005 says:

It’s really about convenience for me. It great that in the coffee market
there’s something for everyone. πŸ™‚

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

I totally agree πŸ™‚ – Kat

renix says:

I’ve never had one good shot from a nespresso machine.

johnkramme says:

Mixing is also possible. I’ve tried Finezzo/Vivalto and/or
Finezzo/Capriccio. Try it and tell us, your favorite mix πŸ™‚

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

This isn’t possible as all of these are pre-ground and formulated
specifically to work with the internal tech of a Nespresso. You can’t
actually extract a shot using a traditional machine as you can’t dial in
the grind, etc. Sorry! – Kat

andrewreversethrustw says:

Hi Kat, I thought that you could use a pressurised portafilter and that
wouldn’t make the grind so important. Many thanks.

J John says:

hope you never wasted that delicious espresso.

Mike D says:

I wish we could see Kat too, she sounds hot.

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

My favorite is Arpeggio (purple) and Gail’s is Roma – Kat

Kel E says:

What is yours and Gail’s favourite capsule

J John says:

which would i do just add 1.5oz of water to each 1.5oz shot or do you add
6oz water to a 1.5ozshot for 8oz drink.

Michael Vo says:

Just picked up the black U. Kat & Gail, what your favorite pod flavor?

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

Thank you for sharing! I love coffee press coffee, too πŸ™‚ – Kat

J John says:

How meany shots would you use. How much volume should shot one be for best
taste. and how much volume of water should we add for 8oz cup. it all taste
too bitter for me. i tried 40ml one shot and 4oz water.

Seattle Coffee Gear says:

Awwww — thank you!! That’s an awesome compliment — I passed it along to
the rest of the crew πŸ™‚ – Kat
