The espresso formula also contains that bicarbonate which should make it better from a corrosion risk perspective. Per Taylor Minor of TWW: "Third Wave Water capsules - add to water for better

Rocket Appartamento shuts off after two minutes [SOLVED]

Rather it locks out and eventually registers an error. Since my machine is plumbed, I was very happy when I accidentally discovered this feature by
