Don't stomp on the poor man's buzz!
The EG-1 was only a review unit, I don't own one. I suppose I could use the R120 if I was motivated though.
Yes, this coffee can likely be extracted ok with an espresso machine, but dollars to donuts, the best extraction of it is probably on the lines of a lungo extraction that would still be beat by a well crafted pour over.
I've had lots of Mamuto and count it amongst the very best coffees we can buy. I wouldn't want to try to compact all those flavor notes into a more concentrated hit. It's beautiful when brewed. Just my opinion. One of the very few roasters in this country who know how to roast, who also procures the finest coffees, I'd want to open up every flavor note and accent with a proper extraction.
