Comment:
Over the years my wife and I have become certifiable coffee snobs, to the point of importing our own. Even tried roasting at home(bad idea!) Of all the automatic machines we have owned and used over the years, this one makes the best tasting coffee so far, by far!<br /><br />A little over the top style wise, and makes intersesting noises, but well worth it.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
