Colin McD: I’ve always wanted my own bean to cup machine at home. I love espresso and have to grind my own beans, tamp, get the milk right etc. It would be great to have one that does it all. We have a commercial coffee machine (http://www NULL.liquidline NULL.co NULL.uk/coffee-machines) at work that has this facility, but a little bit too expensive to have at home!
