Great service and great product February 4, 2019
Reviewer: Ron Bilow (emradguy on CoffeeGeek and Home-Barista from Bellaire, TX United States  
Why I love shopping at Chris Coffee Service 1. the service is always top notch, no matter if youre talking sales or technical support, 2) the items available for purchase are great quality and value. They just dont carry crappy things, so you know whatever you choose, its going to be good, and 3) their goal is to help you find what you need, not to oversell you something thats going to bring in more revenue. I bought this filter system for drinking water, not really wanting or needing the highest end product like I already have for my plumbed espresso machine. It was super easy to install, especially since Id already done Mose of the work when I put in the system I was replacing (formerly a Costco product). This simple charcoal cartridge performs way better than the 3 stage one had before, with better flow and better taste...and a longer filter life!

Affordable filter; plumbing system is a headache November 21, 2018
Reviewer: Maxwell Czerniawski  
Because the water in my city is excellent for direct plumbing an espresso machine, I needed a simple particulate filter.  This fit the bill.  Unfortunately, the John Guest system is an absolute headache to use with the plumb kits for the La Marzocca Linea Mini.  I have a completely modern plumbing system in my home, but had to make two trips to Home Depot for converters, connectors, etc. to make the connection from my supply line to my LMLM.  Add in John Guest's use of NPTF rather than NPT sizing for fittings, and you're in for some real inconvenience.  This would be a better option if it used a more commonplace plumbing system.

Misleading description May 17, 2018
Reviewer: Stefan Radivojevic from Atlantic City, NJ United States  
This is not accurate description. This is NOT everything you need to connect your espresso machine, this is everything you need to connect the filter to your water line. There is NO way connecting it to your espresso or any other machine since fitting for tubing to threading is not included. So you must go to your HD anyway. I wouldn't be as disappointed if the rep was not rude to insist this is all you need, when end fitting is missing as they dont know what are you connecting it to. Ok, I can understand that, BUT description said "everything you need to connect your espresso machine", which is the reason I bought it, and he shouldn't be insisting otherwise. I bought it here and not separate parts as I thought to BECAUSE what it said in description. PS: He did said he would send me the 25c fitting that would solve all of this.
Product itself is great, it does not lower PPM as its not softener but it did remove smell and taste. Looks rigid and durable. 5 stars for the filter.
