Had my Alchema for over a year. Use it all the time and love the batches that I get. It allows me to experiment with flavors and yeast to see what I can get. I recommend for those that want to make their own cider.
Early days with our brewing but it's quick and so easy to use. It would be better with temperature control and not be reliant on connecting to the server.
The Alchema works as advertised and if you do run into an issue their customer service is quick and polite. I was having an issue with the app, and after speaking with them they were able to put out an app update that solved the issue.
Just 10 minutes to get it going, then let the machine do everything, while you track it on your phone - pure genius. Great repeatable results too.
Gave as a birthday present to my wine loving girlfriend and she likes it more than she likes me.
