my new coffee machines

The Kitchen Aide Proline grinder is outstanding. It's built like a tank and is very consistent.

The Presto is a very good coffee maker. It heats the water properly and the stays at a low enough temp., so it doesn't cook the coffee.

The Gaggia is great. After a bit of practice, I'm getting good crema and able to follow the golden rule. You could pay more and have an all metal housing, but what's inside is what makes great espresso!
