    My @ss of a business partner was apparently bored and came into the roastery with a moccamaster........like we needed another pourover in the shop.
    Gotta admit, it makes good coffee.....better than the Bonavita

    Yes, Rao has the Decent espresso machine... seems to have pretty impressive results. It's a tweakers dream... pressure profiles / etc.

We do have guests quite often so I do want a 10 cup with a stainless carafe. Is there a solid alternative to the Moccamaster or should I just buy one? "

    Thanks in advance...!
    I'm a new TV user, still getting things dialed in well. I was actually in a similar mode to you, though working at home now my coffee consumption has risen slightly. After getting rid of my last machine when it died, I stayed with the Aeropress for the last year. No complaints about the coffee, but more about the convenience when I'm at work. I still use the AP on weekends, but for during the week, I love the TV MM. What drove me to this machine over the Bonavista was the fact that everything is replaceable. I've had so many disposable appliances get thrown out after a year, I wanted something that I could easily disassemble for a complete cleaning and could repair easily. The TV MM hits those buttons.

    Unlike many YouTube videos, I can't say my first pot in the TV was perfect. It was actually rather bad, but as I've been learning the personality of the machine I've been getting consistently excellent cups. I bought the KBT because I wanted the thermal and auto stop wasn't important to me. I have the manual setting on the basket, and have yet to get a successful pot on half flow, but on wide open I have it pretty much nailed.

    Should you go with the TV? Only you can decide but those are the reasons I went with it and am very happy. Oh and the retro look rocks!
