I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

Is this the same machine reviewed here? http://coffeegeek.com/reviews/commercial/lanuovaeracuadra

That seems like an unbeatable deal...BZ07 killer?

The only thing that strikes me initially is the wattage at 1200 watts - don't the HX's usually have a bit more than that? Also, that and some other specs (e.g. weight, etc.) are inconsistent with the machine's description here: Click Here (www.jlhufford.com)

Is that the same machine, aside from the color? Or am I comparing apples to oranges?

Thanks.

That is the machine - after the intro price it will sell for $1600 according to some info on H-B.  Heck of a deal IMHO.

Tempting..

As I posted on the other thread about this machine, it firmly is in the same class of machine. The normal MSRP is the same class as the Rocket also. It sure looks like a heck of a deal and if I was looking for a HX machine or even looking at a PID'd Silvia, this machine would be seriously at the top of the list!

I love a good deal too - this machine is compelling at the $995 price point. With so many nice machines available around this price, now is a great time to be shopping for an upgrade.

Would this be a good machine for a newbie?

If you have the budget for this machine AND a good grinder, YES!!! You will have much better results, much quicker on this machine than you will by starting with a SBDU machine... with or without a PID unit.
