I saw this today and thought it looked like it might be some sort of Technivorm knockoff--pretty lofty claims from DeLonghi.  It is only $83.  I get a lot of interest in my Technivorm from coffee lovers, but they refuse to spend $200--is it possible that a viable alternative has come on the scene?  It would be great if these folks could have proper coffee at a price they can swallow!

What are your opinions on why this little machine might or might not compare?  How many of you have tried or seen one?  

I think it has a stainless instead of copper boiler, but sounds similar from the descriptions I have read.

edit: this machine is currently $58.01 and as low as $5.75 shipping
edit: price reduced to $46.11!!

Hello,

This coffee brewer is actually the Kenwood CM900.  I think its made in Japan and re-badged by DeLonghi.  It's approved by the European Coffee brewing center in Norway, the link is below.  I meets the water to coffee contact time and temperature like the Technivorm brewers do.  Hope this helps you!


Regards,

Antonius de Korte

It is only $83.  .

Posted December 17, 2009 link

I looked on line since a friend just asked me the same question.  They want a machine and are using a $20 coffee maker and want an upgrade but are not willing to spend the big bucks on one.  They asked me what I was using and my commercial Bunn unit is out of the question for them.  When I saw your thread, and the statement about meeting the European Coffee brewing center in Norway standards, I did a search and found it for closer to $150.  Care to share the location of the $83 unit publically?

Cool, I'm a Sam's club member.  I looked on  Amazon and a few of the popular coffee sites and it is selling for around $150 - $170.  This might be a winner.

Tried to send you and email but my ISP bounced it back as undeliverable.  Will try one more time.

Edited to say that I can't read.  Big Smile.

I did find one on Ebay for that price in an opened package floor model, but the new one on Ebay is $110.  To recomend to a friend to buy the floor model has some risks involved in remaining friends - HA.  Want his buying, brewing experience to go as smoothly as possible.
