    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    My wife just gave me a Krups EA8080 fully auto coffee machine. I had a quick look around but did not see a lot of reviews for this product. I was really thinking a manual coffee machine would be great and i am not sure if i should keep it or ebay it. Its brand new and i have not opened it yet and was looking for some feedback. Does anyone know if these machines are any good? Can they make a better coffee that i will be able to? I was hoping to do a course and start making my own....your advice is welcome :)

    Thanks,

    Brett

    Yep, sorry to tell you that any superauto will only make bilge water - theres just too many variables that are all interconnected that need to be accounted for to make a decent coffee.

    After a quick google search it looks like your gift is worth around $1200. For that money you could get yourself a decent espresso machine & grinder set up, such as:

    Lelit PL042
    Lelit PL041 + Breville BCG800
    GEE + Breville BCG800

    Thanks for the replies guys! Well i guess the feeling is strong in regard to the automatic machines.....was hoping for a yeah that ones pretty good :) hehehehe Not to worry i guess now the question is what would the best manual to buy for around 800-1k mark. I have a basic hario slim hand grinder and normally make coffee for 2 to 4 people at a time. Most of the drinks are milk based tho i often drink black.

    Cheers,

    brett
