    Huh?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Am I missing the point or is this device designed principally, to relieve people of the weight of excess cash sitting idly in their pockets?

    Seems to be a piece of hardware designed just for the sake of its own existence...

    I think itís designed for cafes that do a lot of single-dosing with an EK. Saves them from having to pre-portion for rushes.

    Yep, thought of that one too but there are several ways to accomplish that (efficiently) without the need to spend all that dough, surely...

    I saw this at MICE over the weekend and I have to say i think you are spot on Mel. It left me thinking why and WTF! It looks nice but its very limited in terms of purpose.

    My main grip was the price point of it...

    However, each to their own as it may serve someone a purpose...

    PS...it reminded me of one of those lollie machines you find outside super markets. Put your 5 cents in and turn the dial. sometimes you get one lollie other times you might get two.
