Detailed Commentary

Started out with a entry level Delonghi and had problems with it that cost more to repair than machine was worth so after 11 months threw it away.  Stumbled upon Coffeegeek and read many professional and consumer reviews about machines and grinders.

Ended up buying a Saeco Aroma (black) and a Saeco Titan Burr Grinder from Costco.  Very pleased with both products and especially the burr grinder.  I'm glad I read on Coffeegeek about burr grinders, they make a huge difference in the quality of the espresso.

Only 2 months into our new Saecos and going strong.  We have saved about $140.00 by making our drinks at home and will break even in 2 more months.

Coffeegeek....Thanks for your help!

Buying Experience

Bought through Costco on-line.  Arrived in 3 business days.  Great price with no problems.

Three Month Followup

Have had the espresso machine for about 5 months now.  Use the machine 2 times a day.  Very easy to use and clean.  Perfect foam every time.  Would  buy again.  Still going strong.

One Year Followup

Coffee maker and burr grinder are still going strong.  No issues with either unit.  I would defiantly purchase both products again.  Sorry Starbuck, I haven't bought a cup from you since.  Thanks again CoffeeGeek for your site.
