    Suggestions on cheap super auto...

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

    As much as it pains me to have to ask this (please dont sentence me to decaf just yet)... What are you thoughts on a reasonable super auto in the <$1000 range?

    The reason for this question being that after staying with a friend, and him using my Jura X90 every day, hes gotten quite enamoured with the idea of getting up, hitting a button and having a caffeine hit delivered to his cup without having to think. Given that Im now moving out, and hes about to be stuck with instant *shudder* Im toying with getting him cheapish super auto, as a thank you.

    Soo... you opinions are hereby sought on a machine that can:

    -grind its own beans
    -clean itself, or at least have some kinda rinse/clean cycle
    -make a reasonable long black
    -steam milk automatically.

    Any advice is appreciated as I dont wanna land him with a lemon...
