Detailed Commentary

Nice to see the Santos around again after all these years.   We bought our first Santos at Macy's back in the late 80's/early 90's, and enjoyed it so much we purchased 5 over several years.  Coffee made in the Santos tasted great, and was entertaining to watch brew.    Additionally, the Santos was inexpensive and cleaned easily - both important factors for newlyweds.    Our last Santos was regretfully retired after breaking the 5th funnel.  Would I buy it again?   Maybe.  Saw one recently at my local coffee shop recently, and I was tempted.

Buying Experience

Purchased through storefront in 80's.
