I wish I could afford one of my own.
I had the good fortune of using this machine at a luxury resort I stayed at. I wrote down the manufacturer information thinking that I should get one of my own. Ha! As if I could afford one. A quick google search reveals that they retail for 12k.
I was extremely pleased with the quality of the espresso. I had assumed it would be of poor quality, given that it's a fully automated machine. But my past experience has biased me against automatic espresso makers. The taste was fantastic, superb. I don't pull shots as good as this machine does.
I really want one of these for the office, or for those mornings where you wake up bleary eyed and wanting espresso but realize that you're already 5 minutes late and don't have time.
