This thing is imported straight from the Netherlands and made with the best materials money can buy. We currently have one set up in the office and let me tell you, it is the best cup of coffee I've ever had. If you're paying 8-10 bucks for a cup of coffee everyday, you should stop and give this machine a try ASAP. Not only would it be a wise investment and save you a bunch of money, but you'll be getting better coffee in your home than any shop could ever offer. Stringent attention to detail is given to every machine, as they are hand crafted by the master crafters in Holland.
