Bottom Line: Magic machine - turns Starbucks beans into coffee that tastes like the Maxwell House in my mom's kitchen.
Positive Product Points

Elegant design - nicely thought out.  Good fit and finish.

Negative Product Points

The grind function is inadaquate - and one would think that these guys would at least know how to build a grinder - whole beans are consistently left unground after the cycle is finished.

Detailed Commentary

This machine makes very weak, cold coffee.  I think the weak coffee is partially a function of the poor grind function.  If I had kept this machine my monthly coffee bean purchases would have doubled as I'd have to increase the number of spoonfulls of coffee I'd use!!

There are a silly number of parts to keep clean.. and to keep track of, though the finish and quality was good.  It's also quite tall - too tall to fit under my cabinets.

The logic of the controls was good and were easy to learn.

Buying Experience

Macy's was a class act - and accepted my return gracefully.  I bought another Krups, a band I've always had success with.
