“The Alfa is a wonderful little flower vape, on par with the best vaporizers in its class. It’s not ostentatious, it feels super comfy to hold, is easy and intuitive to use, produces even heat and good vapor, and succeeds in the primary mission of getting me high.”

“Alfa offers better or equally good vapor quality as more expensive models such as Pax 2. The secret behind its superb performance is a central heating pin right in the middle of the oven, which ensures that your herbs get a consistent amount of heat from all sides as well as center, and you get a smooth, rich flavor”

“Despite a couple of tiny hassles attached to it, the Alfa vaporizer by Goboof is worth every cent. In fact, this tiny little gadget is on a par with the best and more expensive vaporizers in its class, thanks to the unique oven design. It’s not big, it’s not expensive and yet it offers more flexibility than most other portable vaporizers – making it an ideal choice for vaping on the go or even at home.”
