Anyone out there have hands on experience with relatively new piece of equipment? I am interested in both the technical as well as the qualitative aspects of this machine. Thanks.

I'd love to hear people's thoughts on this too!  Just looked at the parts manual and it looks like everything but the touchscreen interface and the brew baskets is basically off-the-shelf Curtis, so it should be solid and reliable. 

My complaint with a lot of manual paper-cone brewing is that it often goes too quickly and under-extracts somewhat.  It'd be interesting to see if they did anything to control that (i.e. smaller orifice exiting basket) or if the pre-wetting and pulse options give you enough control to dial in what you need as far as extraction.  Looks like a pretty clever idea for people who want coffee by the cup but with more consistency and less labor. 

Anyone played with one? 

On a related note, anyone have experience with the Bunn Trifecta yet? 

I saw this at Coffee Fest and watched a demo of it.  I think it was still in the late prototype stage so lots could have changed.  They touted temperature control, and pre-infusion via a simple syphon installed at the bottom of the basket (think toilet bowl, when the water reaches a certain level it flushes).  Clever design, would be interested to compare [taste] this verses a timed pre-infusion.
