This has been talked about on another board.  The long and the short of it is that it is nothing new.

NobbyR Said:

This machine suggests to offer an enhanced quality that simply isn't there by promoting super freshness. Only people who know diddly-squat about coffee will fall for that. After all, optimal roasting of coffee beans requires practical skills as well as experience and the right equipment. Different beans require different roasting profiles to develop their aromas. And of course, beans not only need to cool after roasting, but also to rest in order to reach their aromatic peak. This coffee maker can't provide any of that.
