What do you mean by fresh? Like fresh out the anus? The poop taste wasn't in your face but the after taste was very unpleasant. I still have a bag of it sitting in the cupboard. I guess to each his own

No one seems to offer the twice pooped coffee which seems the next logical step.

Recently roasted. Within a week, in fact, brought straight from Indonesia.

Thinking of getting into espressos at home. Is there a decent entry level espresso machine I can get for under $300?

Using a Baratza Encore for grinding if that makes any difference.

Gaggia Classic on sale

Thanks, I'll keep an eye out for them.

Any other suggestions?

I guess you mean you want to actually make espressos at home, not necessarily just have espressos at home? If the latter, get a Nespresso. The biggest drawbacks are that they lack the mouthfeel of a real espresso (which, frankly, I really miss sometimes) and some people say they aren't hot enough but there are a ton of good varieties and the ease of use to quality ratio is hard to beat.

Then again I am not an expert, so....

I'm generally against home espresso unless you are just a total coffee nerd who loves having a machine to play around with at home. If you just really like drinking espresso or espresso drinks, you are way better off finding a local shop you like.

Unless you live in the suburbs, and then you're just screwed for good coffee unless you make it at home.

This is fair. I have a city-centric view of the world.

I don't experience the drawbacks you mention here. I still think the Nespresso mouthfeel is excellent, I find that most shots I have in coffee shops aside from them being disgustingly acidic they are very thin. The temperature issue can be solved with pulling a shot with no pod in it warming the internals and the cup before pulling a pod loaded shot.

Are manual espresso machines just a lot of hassle to clean/maintain?

I'm not opposed to a nespresso machine, have never used them before though, are they significantly better than a Keurig? Because the times I've had coffee from Keurig pods have been unimpressive.
