Detailed Commentary

For the most part, I've had a satisfactory experience.  The coffee has tasted great.  After the glass chamber wore out the coffee quality goes down because of a decrease in air flow effeciancy (painfull because the replacment is about a third of the roasters price).  The base of the maching which is a hard plastic has cracked making it difficult to remover the bean chamber.  This may be a cause of the breakdown of the bean chamber.   The screen in the chaf collection is very thin and difficult ot clean, and you have to keep it very clean to ensure good air flow.

Buying Experience

The grean Beanery is an awsome place with just about everything you could want.  Great staff as well.
