I too adore making matcha fresh every morning with the Cuzen Matcha machine. My daughter bought it for me for Mother's Day and I was skeptical at first. Another device on my counter and so much extra work to grind fresh instead of pouring powder into a cup, but as stated by others, it's very sleek and attractive and the taste is second to none. I've always used pre-ground powder in a packet and you can tell the difference immediately on the first sip, even in blended versions. My daughter was so impressed she bought one too. I just purchased my first set of new leaves b/c I'm running low on the packets included with the machine.
I blend with other products in the morning and I serve hot, but I think I'll try without adding products after reading about the benefits/quality. I'm anxious to try some new recipes as well. BTW, all the products I add are healthy (roasted dandelion root, coconut oil, turmeric/ginger blend).
I come from a long line of frugal Freddies so this machine was a significant investment that I contemplated for actual months before pulling the trigger and purchasing. I have no regrets (#noragrets) whatsoever. It’s convenient, the matcha is absolutely delicious, and I’ve nearly cut coffee out of my routine entirely, which is a significant feat considering my chronic insomnia and demanding work hours. I’ll say it again—the matcha is delicious, flavorful, fresh, perfect. Using this machine has become a delightful bright spot in my day and I’m thrilled to have been pointed to it by a random, seemingly unsolicited shout out during Dax Shepard’s interview with Carey Mulligan on his podcast. 11/10 would recommend.
So, full disclosure - I am a friend of the company and actually in some of the photos. I got my machine as a gift for helping out in various ways.
With that said, I really do love having it, gift or no gift, friends or not. I have almost entirely switched from coffee at this point, and do find drinking matcha regularly instead to feel like a healthier and more sustainable energy. I will often do premium max strength shots straight to sip slowly, or several shots over ice on warmer days and when i want something to last me through long morning meetings.
I've never had any "problems" with the machine, but if I were to make any criticisms/complains --
_ the shot size is on the small side. This is maybe a strange complaint as it is really a testament that I want to drink MORE matcha, but that also means given how much I drink, I have to run several individual shots given the cup size.
_ similarly, the time it takes to make a shot is a bit slow as well. Again, this is a nitpick from someone who enjoys the machine, and I have to imagine the speed is a necessary consequence of getting that fresh, fine powder and great consistency (no lumps, no grit, etc). It does just add up when making, say, 4-6 shots
And then, some various positive anecdotes:
_ One cause, or perhaps the flip side of the latter issue above -- I've found it really great to have this around when hosting. I've found so many times and preparations where coffee just wouldn't really do and a bit of matcha is the perfect thing. Not having to have a host's worth of ($$) chawan and meticulously whisk each one means I can, say, have the machine running while preparing dessert for example.
_ I find the profile very manageable for the countertop, and always get comments about how sleek it looks.
_ I use the subscription service for the fresh leaves which makes things super easy as well.
_ Another bonus over freshly ground coffee as well -- no chaff and grounds constantly littered all over the countertop! Much easier to keep things neat and tidy.
_ Maintenance required has been very minimal, and very straightforward when needed.
_ OFC, it also tastes great, tho I figure that's a given. I won't say it's "wow blow your mind" better than a high quality powdered matcha ** when it's fresh **, it is much more consistent and doesn't get the bitter, stale, weak taste that powders will over time. Plus, the powdered matchas I tend to like are much harder to come by than an easy auto subscription!
It is truly a joy to have this wonderful Cuzen matcha maker on my kitchen counter. Knowing how easy it is to make a perfect cup of matcha means I have a delicious and easy way to keep my green tea habit going. And best of all, no more lumpy drinks!
After realizing I'm spending $5-10 for a matcha latte on the regular I was thrilled to find Cuzen. The machine and the matcha are beautiful and it's paid for itself very quickly. Matcha is the only caffeine that I my system can tolerate, it's an even, calm, focus and contributes to both my happy mind and productive mind needs. Thank you! Very happy customer over here.
