Yes, and yes. We got this a couple months ago and it's been fantastic; I'm a bit of a pour-over coffee snob and the pulls I'm able to get from this machine have been great.

How's the bay for exchanging colours? They have another machine that applies with the code but it's not available in stainless.

Damn should have held off, stacked a bunch of promos earlier this week to get it but could have made it $40 cheaper. Tried to price adjust but they wouldn't since I used coupon on original order.

Not going to return and rebuy, would be too messy and might lose some of the promos. Only had it for a few days but I've been really impressed so far.

I ordered at $300 but paid with:

- $275 Hudson Bay GC, purchased with $275 of mall GCs bought for $210 by stacking AMEX buy $250, get $40 back, and the bonus $25 metrotown GC.

- $10 off new customer sign-up

- spend $50, get $20 back AMEX promo

- went through Airmilesshop and got 259 Airmiles back (around $25).

So I paid around $190 before tax once you take into account the above deals, could have saved my AMEX promo and used it elsewhere at this price.

im pretty sure this only comes with pressurized baskets so you'd have to also factor in the cost of a non-pressurized one.

Also, a heads up this unit doesn't come with a pitcher, I'm currently trying to figure out what size might be best 12oz vs something larger.

Edit: A milk pitcher may be included.

Definitely get a single wall portafilter before everything else.

Then, all of the above and this coffee stirrer too.
Every one of my espresso shots goes through a bottomless *single wall* portafilter and then I do the following:
1) stirring to even out grinds with the funnel so everything stays in place
2) distribute with fingers then with distributor
3) tamp

Any cheap stirrer will do:
