Posted Tue Dec 18, 2012, 7:56pm Subject: anyone with experience on the new Capresso a la carte brewer?
Saw this in a coffee shop and it looks very intriguing but couldn't taste it. Attributes I liked:
1) Grounds go in the filter and then are compressed somewhat by a sort of spring loaded tamper 2) Brew a cup or brew a carafe, just put amount of coffee in you want and then select size 3) Very narrow footprint 4) Price wasn't too bad ($180ish) 5) A quick (unscientific) test with a meat thermometer indicated a consistent 202-204 water temperature coming out during the full carafe setting
