Well... I have been drinking coffee for 15 years now. I have had my own capresso machine for 10 years. I love making my own ... but at 6 am in the morning i do not make the best shots in the world. This makes the superautos very attractive to me. After about 2 months of researching and trying different ones either set up in stores or in coffee bars i finally settled on this one. The main reason i chose it was because i liked the shot that it made. My fiance and I both drink alot of coffee but do not entertain very often-- that is why i went with the f9 vs s9. One of the other reasons i bought it was that within one year it will pay for itself based on the amount of coffee both of us drink. After having it for 6 months- would not change my purchase. I am very satisfied. I do not miss stopping at the coffee bar on the way into work, or trying to fumble around making my own in the wee hours of the morning. I much prefer making my own drinks now and can perfect them now that i have shots the are very consistent. It also is very clean- nowhere near as much mess as non-superauto's.
