I've been using a budget espresso machine for years, but after it packed it in, someone put me on to pour over coffee and told me to buy a v60. This is probably the most convenient way to make coffee and the coffees I get out of this thing are deliciously smooth. Once you have the amount of coffee grinds dialled in the provided spoon, you'll get great coffees every time. The glass server is also fantastic for when you have guests or want a few cups of coffee and beats having to get up to make another coffee when you're busy. Overall a fantastic product and buying it through Amazon prime meant it was at my door in no time.
