Thanks Nathan I think I'll get a high end machine for me and my mom. I think I'll go and order the machines you mentioned. I'm looking them up now. And I'll also get some high end

In regard to machines not lasting, most people don't clean or descale their machines like they should either.

If you want a high quality drip machine, look up the Bonavita or a technivorm. Those are two of the auto drip machines endorsed by the Specialty Coffee Association of America. They differ from most home machines because they actually heat the water up to the appropriate 195-205 degrees F. Most home machines don't, incl Keurigs.

Or better yet, get a nice grinder, a kettle, and a French press or pour over cone, or Aeropress and make one up at a time. That's as close as I get to doing something religiously. Haha!

You are right Richard. I think they make them just to last a few years or so. Even the expensive coffee makers just don't last. I might have to buy a commercial type coffee maker next.

My mom has the Keurig coffee maker (I got her for xmas) ..that you put the cups of different coffee in to brew.

@Steph S. - What is your budget? What is your brew method? (side note: stop buying starbucks, there is far better coffee out there)

Had a couple nice cappuccinos last night in my new capp cups...2oz shot (50/50 Brazil/Guatemala blend) and 4 oz of steamed milk...

This morning has a nice Macchiatto in my new Macchiatto cup...2oz shot (Panama Elida Estate) and 2oz milk...delicious!!

I'm going to buy a new coffee grinder today.

Anyone else grind their own coffee? I also get coffee from Starbucks.

I have never had goat's milk. I use Almond Milk in my coffee.

Then I add Stevia or another non-sweetener.

How are you doing today Richard and Progmike and any others here today?
