And finally, the splurge:
The Saeco Vienna Deluxe superautomatic espresso machine

This baby grinds your coffee beans, tamps them into place, brews a perfect espresso, then ejects the grounds into a handy container. It also had a hot water function for tea and steam for foaming milk. I've been trying this out for the past couple of weeks and it is excellent. Takes about 2 and a half minutes from turning it on to drinking your first espresso. If you're in the Vancouver area, you'll find Saeco at 1743 Boundary Road.
