This by far is the best coffee maker I have ever owned. I averaged a weekly spend at Starbucks of $28.00 (the only place to get a decent cup of coffee). When I happened upon this coffee maker, I asked the barista at SB, does it make the same cup as you make it? Answer...yes. I put down the 69.00 clams, brought it home and have never been happier. My lovely wife does not drink coffee and that is why it is so convenient for me. I usually put away 2 16oz. per day.

Haven't found any yet!!
If you think that 69.00 is a lot for coffee maker, justify your purchase this way.... Number of trips to your local Starbucks each week x time x gas money. Then, how much do you spend each week at Starbucks? In my case, I paid for my Starbucks Barista Aroma Solo in just about a month, and the time that I save from going to the local Starbucks? Amazing.
Buy this coffee maker if you are a coffee purist. You can't make all the foo foo drinks with it, but it makes a damn good cup of Joe.
