I excitedly come home with a 2k grinder that I got for under 1k on craigslist.  

Husband takes one look at it and says "Ok, so you bought it, just please don't tell me we now need a nicer machine to go with the grinder."

"Are you going to make espresso naked again? Didnt you learn from the last burn you got?"
What can I say, I am a risk taker and I like to play the odds. She doesn't know I burned my self a second time and what are the odds I could do it a third time? Lol

My wife has given up even commenting on my purchases and I don't try to hide them anymore either. When I told her I had boughtthe LaCimballi M32, and why ( so iI would not be out of coffee while overhauling the ECM) she just said, OK.
I'm not so sure if that is a good thing or not!

Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!

Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!

"I already told you we don't have room for any more coffee stuff!"  She doesn't understand how shelves work I guess, because I see lots of room still yet to be filled with coffee stuff...
