You wont find too many fans of superauto machines here...
A couple of things to keep in mind:[*]This style of machine is a complex machine and prone to failure. Prepare yourself for regular time without it when it requires service. Once its out of warranty, expect to spend $$$[*]Coffee beans should not be stored near heat; therefore not in the inbuilt grinder- which will be of poor to average quality[*]One part dies (eg grinder) and you have no machine[*]If you want coffee at the push of a button, find a good barista and get him/her to do it for you. The results will be a heap better.
A good manual machine coupled with a good grinder, fresh beans and sound technique will give you a far beter result..
Ultimately, the result in the cup will be proportional to the effort you put into producing that cup...
Good luck ;)
