Coffee, this aint no game.

Yes, we love our coffee we’ve loved our Krups coffee maker.  Actually we’ve had quite a few of them and I wrote about that here.

Since the last couple of repairs making one good Krups out of two, we’ve been looking for the next replacement.  We located what we wanted and just waited for the right deal.  We got that deal this weekend (Black Friday) on a refurbished unit from Seattle Coffee Gear with a 2 year warranty.

The Saeco Moltio Carafe HD8869/47 Superautomatic Espresso Machine

Removable Bean Hopper – Removable bean hoppers make it easy to clean and swap out beans. (Comes with two hoppers so we can now have decaf)
Double Thermoblock – Dedicated steam and brew thermoblocks offer unbeatable on-demand heat.
Removable Milk Carafe – A refrigerator-ready milk carafe makes it easy to store milk when not in use.
Ceramic Burrs – Heat-resistant ceramic helps preserve the delicate aromatics of espresso beans.
Pre-aroma – Programmable pre-infusion helps to reduce channeling and improves shot-to-shot consistency. < This sounds like marketing nonsense.
Programmable – Set and save your ideal drink temperature, coffee dosing and water to milk ratio.

All the things we wished about in the Krups, with a removable, washable brew unit and a few other upgrades.

It’s very early in, we ordered this as a co-Christmas gift.  It arrived today and of course we needed to set it up and make sure it worked.  It does. No point in putting it away until Christmas.
