Bottom Line: I wish I would have gotten something with more features and a finer grind, but the coffee I make is great so it can't be all that bad, right?

Bob Abbott (quality: 6.0) 02.20.2004 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: If you do drip or have a Starbucks espresso machine -- works fine, but it is a "lightweight" compared to other brands for little more $$.
