great!  Just saw you considered that used GS/3 in Milwaukee.  Did you get a price on one from Chris'?  I've heard they actually sell them for something in the $4.5k ballpark brand new (contrary to the posted prices on the websites).

4.5K is still beyond what I was willing to do.... especially since the grinder is so important.  I just got a bunch of Starbucks coffee that I can't wait to make on this new machine.

I thought your new setup comes with a bag of Black Pearl?  That's pretty good stuff.

I was only kidding.  Scrolled down just in case I got flamed and put in a disclaimer:)
