No, not a watch :D After a string of espresso machines (the first one a hand operated Saeco) ending in a Nespresso machine, two days ago I took delivery of another Saeco, a fully automatic machine this time. Completely stainless steel and more functions and setting than the Starship Enterprise :D You can program the settings for 6 different users and can tweek everything from the amount of coffee, water, water temperature and water/coffee ratio. This is the first machine that actually delivers good cappuccino froth. Dense, thick foam. I've loaded it with Lavazo D'oro beans now, pure bliss!

Wow!!!! Very nice. I'm jealous.

I have one too. Not automatic, have to pack own bowl and tamp it. Haven't used it in a fee years sadly. No space at my apartment. Nice purchase bro.

Anne loves the cappuccino, it works every time. I'm tweaking my espresso now. Luckily there's a huge coffee machine/bean store nearby so I'll be on the hunt for new beans (kilo bag).

I am embarrassed to say that I am a fan of no fuss no muss plain ole instant coffee. No machines of any kind for me. I microwave a cup of water with a half inch of milk for 75 seconds then add a little sugar and badabing my plebeian taste is satisfied.

Outstanding!

We have a very simple DeLonghi, which does just fine; but it doesn't hold a candle to your
"smart" espresso machine.

Enjoy!

Ever thought about a Nespresso machine? Switch on, drop capsule in, press button, drink good coffee. No fuss and no mess :D

Yes that coffee machine is awesome, but no more gadgets for me. My kitchen cabinets are full of "stuff" we haven't used in years. I no longer desire or have any more room for any more stuff. Especially if I have to clean the gadget before putting it away.

Soon I will hold a yard sale and sell all that stuff and move into a bachelor pad, which at my age is called a condo.

I used to have a juicer machine so powerful that it would blend a brick. Then it occurred to me that I could just eat the apple or the orange. What was I thinking?

I have a smaller Nespresso machine that gets used every so often. Great stuff for a smaller machine that is quick and easy.
