Which super-automatic was created by lyfoley
I had the visit of a friends and he liked the coffee I served them (1 espresso and 1 cappuccino).

So they asked me to recommend a machine for them. What they are looking for is for far from what I looked for when I bought mine that I have no idea what to recommend.

I know them enough to say that:
the price up to 3 or 4 000$ is OK
they ABSOLUTELY need a super-automatic
judging from their cars, their watches and everything else that the NAME on it is important. They have business partners as guest. So their home and what is inside must show they are successful.

Anyone can help me find the perfect machine for them

Did you say 3 or 4 thousand dollars for a coffee maker?

I say... "forget about it..."

Get them a good ESE Pod machine
and leave the super-duper auto brain-dead machines to starbucks baristas...

I really like that idea of the pods

I think I know what I'm looking for now to satisfy my friends.

A very good semi-automatic that is pod capable. That way if I'm wrong and they start taking their coffee more seriously they can get a grinder to go with their machine.

And yes I said 3 or 4 000$ not everybody cries like I do when I look at my saving and the present economy.

I think I ran into some of your friends in Fairfield.

You do NOT need to spend $4000 on a machine.

You could open a small cafe for that.

So. Why not cut the $$ crap and let's talk serious.

No one in their right mind is going to spend 4 bones
on their 1st espresso machine.

The only super-automatic you can buy locally are Saeco and Jura. A visit of a store for Jura machine gave us a price range.

I have better things to do than waste my time online with crap to use your words.

Anyway thanks for the help you have given me before

99.9% of the people on this website have a budget of 400 to 900 dollars for a decent machine.

People boasting of having 4000 dollars for a coffee machine are not here to buy a coffee machine...

I think the readers will agree.

Have a nice day.
