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