Is it just me who thinks these machines look absolutely gorgeous!!!

I'm guessing they are terrible?  Not done any further research yet - just bought a Niche and Gaggia Classic with all the mods.

EDIT - just read it used cartridge/pods.  Really pretty machine though!

it's lacking at least one handle sticking out somewhere, other than that looking nice! Quite unique proportions as well

Cool

- I think the Mona Lisa is a boring picture of a fairly plain woman
- I think most of the Sunflower pictures are plain boring
- and don't get me started on the Potato Eaters or Whistlers Mother........

And they are all apparently masterpieces - who am I to judge?

It's the eyes. Doesn't matter where you stand looking at the picture (original) her eyes are always looking at you.

I shall be damned if he wouldn't pull an all-nighter to see this. Just imagine all his faces...!

btw, I was wrong about the coffee maker. I don't like it. At all. It looks like the rubbish bin@Snakehips went down in.

Or maybe like@Thecatlinux 's EK in his worst nightmares.
