No worries! To make matters worse, Jim at 1st in Coffee belonged to the same fraternal organization as I did in college, except he was in a different school. He may be older, but we started 1st-line first. :)

I don't think there's anybody on this forum of coffee gourmets who would recommend buying any super automatic without a caveat. After all we all know that those machines are all about convenience and less about espresso quality. Maybe the OP just followed an advertising link, which is not an endorsement or recommendation.

I did find a reference to that machine, see my link.
I also doubt ANYINE would advise any visitor to buy a super auto AND this rant thread was the OPs first post so they did not ASK FOR A RECOMMENDATION they just read something and took it as an endorcement when it was no such thing.
