Just noticed this thread has been revived.
My bean-to-cup coffee machine has been languishing for a few years now. The only reason I haven't sold it is because it's worthless as a second hand machine, despite it making a good cup of coffee! The reason for not using it is that my coffee consumption dropped dramatically after I retired, but the machine needs regular cleaning. Whereas it was worth the effort for the number of cups I used to drink, that's no longer the case.
Rather than switch to instant coffee, I now buy ground coffee and use a cafetiere. Almost as good (for long coffee, obviously not applicable for espresso!) and a lot easier to clean after use.
The cafetiere also allows me to play with flavoured coffees (I always enjoy the hazelnut coffees you get in the USA) which need quite strict between-different-coffees cleaning if made in the machine. Another plus for the simpler device.
The odd time I want a latte, I'll heat the milk and whisk it, rather than use the coffee machine frother, so that's not an issue either, even if the coffee going in to it is a little more dilute without the espresso machine.
Right, that's written - time for a cup of tea
