New Kickass CoffeeMaker: Capresso 455
Back in April 2004, I posted Your Coffee Sucks!
It definitely resonated with people -- as you can tell from the many comments its recieved.
Well, we have an update: This week, I received as a birthday gift the latest Capresso Design -- and its awesome: The Capresso 455.05 CoffeeTEAM Therm Stainless Coffeemaker/Burr Grinder Combination
Yeah, its $300 -- but its the best machine I've come across that's under 4 figures.
The latest advance -- aside from the slick black and chrome sdesign -- is that there is no pot/carafe warmer, which has a tendency to burn coffee. Instead, the brew drips into a vaccuum thermos.
Mrs. essays & effluvia one complaint about the old Capresso grind & brew was that it wasn't hot enough (she says that about most coffee makers. though).
Not so with this baby -- its not only much hotter than the old machine when it brews, but an hour or two later, its still much hotter. On Sunday morning, you can start the NYT with a cup, and refill it when you are done, with fresh still very hot coffee. Hmmmm, delicious.
I've only had it a week, but its awesome.
If you can't bring yourself to spend that type of wood on a coffeemaker, than put it on your list for a holiday gift. Its the type of indulgent item that is easier to give a s a gift than spend the money on for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
You probably don't want to spend this type of wood, but the next step up is the $3,000 Magic Saeco. Yeah, that's right, you can drop 3 large on an expresso maker, so stop whining about 300 bucks . . .
Oops! That was the origianl price --its now on sale at the low low price of $1,159.00
