I was really looking forward to this espresso subscription. Considering the state of the world, I was excited of the prospect of having high quality espresso at home. However, it did not live up to my expectations. The espresso did not have a pleasing taste. I am not a fan of the machine. The instructions are written in broken English. They are hard to follow and figure out. I wanted to adjust the amount of water it used to brew, but could not due to the poor instructions. Also, you have to pay up front for 3 months to start the subscription. So I am now stuck with a machine and 2 more shipments of pods that I will never use.
I got this subscription on a whim, especially since it had no reviews. I got a prestamped postcard, a greeting card with envelope, a print of a painting, and a small workbook. The picture of a painting was different, not something I'd normally pick for myself. I did really like the card and the postcard. I flipped through the workbook, and their description of minimalist is true. There's not a whole lot to it. However, I do like that. I feel like some self-help and mindfullness books are so full of information that they become overwhelming. I do believe this has just the right amount of content and I look forward to getting started.
