Holy smack. You got the elite stuff! We just got a small piddly unit to try out before we took the dive and went for a bigger more expensive unit.

I know fresh ground is best, but what's your opinion of pods? Decent flavor?

didn't try pods yet... pple say it's clean but no real "gusto" ... I may get some from Illy (check their wsite!), together with the alu tamper...

...the $450 machine comes out free !... the designer cup set itself goes for $200 ! ... I'd just go for the $66 coffee every other month which comes out as a $1.20/month deal... about what I'd spend on coffee anyways (if not more) :wink:
