Detailed Commentary

Having run and operated a coffee shop for 17 years, I was addicted to a good coffee on a daily basis.
In August 2005 I retired and sought a good quality machine for domestic use.
This machine was recommended and so I held my breath after having had a Krups and a Sunbeam machine in the past that made only medocre esspresso.
To my delight this machine just keeps on keeping on, despite my 'overuse'
I recently took on some part time office work, fed up with the office 'instant' I took the machine into the office for others to experience 'real' coffee.
I left it there for 6 weeks and let me tell you I have not seen a more happy group of fellow workers or tradesmen.
I brought the machine back home after 6 weeks and I have been harrassed ever since, when is the machine coming back ?
My employer has since asked about the machine and with 'tongue in cheek'  has suggested to me that a condition of my employment was to get that machine back to the office.
So here is a challenge, any retailer out there who is willing to ship one of these machines to my employer at a good price, should email me withn their offer.
Remember the machine need to be shipped to Australia !

Buying Experience

Great experience, with the company calling to follow up 3 months after my purchase to make sure all was ok.
