I was feeling nominally good about myself, having finally tamed my espresso machine and gotten to a place where I'd actually rather sit at home and drink my own creations than mix among the masses at Starbucks. Then I had the misfortune to go over to my brother-in-law's house, where I was confronted with the $800 Espresso Machine of Doom that is not only pump-driven, so as to churn out a much higher quality of espresso product than my own machine, but also stores and grinds beans on demand, obviating the need for the separate grinding step and apparatus.
I was broken.
That is, until I found this badboy, who does all of the above, and will also store and chill milk for up to 18 hours.
Now I just need to find one that will harvest and roast beans to my specifications before grinding. And clean up after it's done. And help me understand commercial paper.
