I would like to get a Nesrpesso at some point.
We have Original and Vertuo machines. Love them both. Reinforces that K-Cups are absolute swill. Their Black Friday sales the past two years have been better than their internal employee discount, so I would take a look at them then.
I just got a Veruto. Cashed in some PNC points for a Bed Bath and Beyond gift card, cheaper than an amazon card, then set up a new email for the 20% off. only out 60.

I got a French press in March, because what else was I gonna do with my extra morning time. I tend to get a bag of whole bean (usually what’s on sale between Pete’s, Starbucks, or something else) and grind it in store to use it home. I know I should get a grinder. What else am I doing wrong?
Buy whole bean and grind what you need when you brew. I have this burr grinder, and would recommend it to anyone:



And if you're going to be lazy like I have been, at least use screen filter cup for your drip machine:

My partner and I received the Gaggia Anima from staff last year. Great machine.

That price seems.... excessive, compared to others on amazon. What’s it give me that cheaper ones don’t?

how do the veruto pod prices compare to k cups?
Depends on the variety, but the Vertuo pods run anywhere from $0.85 to $2 per pod with most around $1.10.

Are you referring to the burr grinder? I just noticed the price - definitely cheaper at Target: https://www.target.com/p/capresso-infin ... A-79835163

Burr grinders are superior to traditional grinders, as the grinds will all be evenly sized. They're not as noisy IME, either.

Oprah is a good comparison for my coffee. Black, rich, hot, and never had milk in it.

I’ve been using some of Trader Joe’s coffees - Dark Roast and French Roast. Cheaper (much cheaper) than their premium 12 oz coffees and most cans are 14oz.
