YES! BUY THIS!
I got mine a while ago and it has been absolutely terrific! It’s definitely worth it. Mine reads over 1700 cups made, thus far. We use it for both daily cups of regular coffee and for espresso drinks.
Best beans seem to be Illy Scuro Espresso.
I bought one of these in a prior woot and it arrived defective. I was rather furious. woot agreed to take it back but had no replacements.
My Jura F9 had been very reliable for 11 years but had gotten fussy after 10k cups, so when this unit popped up again I hesitantly purchased.
This machine blows away the F9, in capacity, in complexity, in adjustability, in quality of coffee. I’ve only used it a couple of days, but so far, very good.
Improvements over the F9:
increased water, bean and grounds capacity.
greatly increased output temperature(really hot! F9 never got this hot)
Cup warmer works
Bean hopper tells you it’s low on beans.
customizable one touch milk/coffee drinks (cappucinos etc).
Excellent quality steamed milk/foam.
Much better menu setup/control wheel.
So far my only gripe is that the rinse button doesn’t do anything when you simply want to rinse the machine, you have to navigate the menu.
The other annoyance is the red power led that for some reason is illuminated when the machine is off. Lights up the whole kitchen, and I can see it from another room.
