with this machine, there are no more rituals to go through, like what we had to do for the old analog albums. it's very simple to use and it makes great coffee.

when you've tried it, tell us what you think.

BlueJays1,
It is also my preferred one but I can't afford it daily; once in awhile I will succomb. But I still rely on a William product "Expresso" for my daily dose of coffee. By the way William facilities are located where I live in Sherbrooke. I went to their factory once; did it ever smelled good. However, the prices are not lower than they are at Costco; they might even be higher. What a pitty !

Loc: Sitting down somewhere
I was prescribed glasses last summer, and as a result I have been relegated to using the Windows 7 onscreen keyboard to type everything because the headset I previously wore for dictation would knock my spectacles ajar. I don't know if any of you have used it, but it's highly inefficient (having limited dexterity only adds to this). A lot of my posts here and elsewhere would take me over an hour to compose.

So, I searched high and low for a good table microphone and came across this. It's definitely not cheap at almost $400 Canadian (after you include shipping and duties), but so far it has performed beyond my expectations. I currently have it's sitting on a table beside my bed so the microphone is about six inches from my face, but by changing a setting on the microphone, you can accurately dictate from several feet away; it's truly impressive and I can see how it has received high praise online from reviewers and Nuance-the creators of Dragon Naturally Speaking-as well.

I highly recommend this to anyone that's looking for an alternative to cumbersome and uncomfortable headsets.

I haven't tried any of their other blends other than the Jamaican Blue Mountain blend which is just fantastic. The bag is just about done which is sad. I'm not surprised this product comes from Quebec. It is home to some of my favorite beers as well.

For a little more, a person can get a Baratza or Rancilio grinder that will grind all formats consistently from espresso to press. A little less nostalgic though. I love my Rancilio Rocky!

Considering most hand grinders take 200+ turns to grind enough for a single shot, 31 seems pretty good... for a hand grinder.

Funny, I started looking at $100 hand grinders because I want to get back to grinding my own for my morning cuppa without all the sludge, only to find none of them work worth a darn for press pot grinds. They produce too many of the fines that I hate.

Somewhere along the way I got sucked into the rabbit hole that is espresso and have a used Saeco Aroma sitting on my counter waiting for the appropriately ground bean for a fine espresso or latte.

This thing seems to grind at the same level as a Mazzer Mini or Major, as it should with that big honkin' burr.

Wowza! I found a small local company that roasts their own and thought $18 a pound was a lot.
