Hello all,

So, she's 91 and wants a machine that is not too expensive.  Any recommendations? Obviously not going to be a real espresso maker.  Just something easy, and not expensive that makes a nice drinkable "latte".


best thought now is a mr. coffee cafe latte (cafe ole), for its good amazon reviews (http://tinyurl.com/ajejhkg).  happy to spend $$250 or so if it makes a difference in ease or quality (hopefully both).


Thanks!

She uses one at her cafeteria that she likes just fine.  All she does is place the cup down and push a button.  She just wants a machine for her apt.
I pretty sure she's not down for a 40lb tamp every morning.
