I can be more helpful than that (well hopefully, depends if my source is correct)

October-November, but more likely November at this stage.

Thinking the four grand area.

Well as AlMac said, maybe longer than expected...

Source says prototypes first - maybe to that date, but consumer sales could be 2006 as opposed to 2005...

Prototypes this month, supposedly (still waiting for news on CG's prototype);

Full production in the new year. Paddlewheel TBA....

Still $4500 MSRP. Dealers may sell for less. Maybe.

Listen to Kent Bakke's interview in Podcast 017 where we talk about the home machine and its rollout.

Thanks Mark,  I'm gonna send you a sep email on some podcast matters - but yes, just listened to #17 and was even more pumped for this LM machine as a result of this podcast (I had to stop the iPod on the plane for landing - might crash so they say (total crap) so couldn't wait to get in the car to hear the rest of that section!)

Two things though, (1) many non-US buyers like me will not want 110v so while that's big news for you, we'll hope the 220v version  doesn't give us the shortcommings you mention with 220 dumbed down to 110 as you have experienced. (2) From the pics I have not been able to tell if there's a hot water spout?

Thanks for the info. See. Want. Must have.

Any follow up on the Espressione Super-Auto?  It really looks compelling from the basic description (up to 16 gms, short travel, removeable brew group for cleaning, $600, etc.)  Anyone found out temp info or any more details?
