Hi, I'm curious to know what people think about home coffee machines. I would like to buy one but even the expensive ones don't seem to do as good a job as I would like. We've had them in the past starting with a cheap one. This one we got sick of bad coffee and sold it as we never used it. Then we bought one of those (very expensive) automatic ones. You know, push a button, get a cappuccino. This machine was better than the cheap one, but for the price we paid, I was highly disappointed. Even when we got the coffee ground to the right grind at the local cafe and checked the temperatures were correct, we just couldn't get a good coffee out of it.
My question is: Has anyone out there found a good machine for a realistic price that produces a good cup of coffee?
