The War on Morning Coffee

If it brewed tea as well I MIGHT think about it.
It does warm water. But that needs to have boiled and then cooled for a proper cup of tea.

It could heat the water to the appropriate temperature, and have the steeping requirements of all the different leaves on hand.

Ok, all joking aside, seeing how much counter space this thing really takes up (ie less than my coffee maker, let alone my coffee maker and espresso machine combined) I would considered getting one, assuming I had the disposable income. Sure it only does one thing, but if it does it well and keeps most of the machinery out of sight, yes I would look into getting one.

Countertop, yes, but you do have to give up all of that cabinet space. So there's still a tradeoff. Plus it'd be a hell of a lot easier to move the coffee maker, should you ever need to.

ETA: The boobies made me think it could almost be an elaborate hoax so I looked up the company. It's supposed to be built into a countertop instead of that wheeled cabinet. I... I must investigate further.

If only I could find a los angeles coffee house that uses the Trifecta.
I'm a big fan of automating coffee into perfection. the human touch is just too damn inconsistent.
question for espresso nuts. I've never given a damn about espresso drinks or espresso by itself. I've had about three great shots of espresso, 99% of the time when I've ordered espresso (and this is in fancy places like Intelligentsia, I'd never dare to order espresso in a starbucks or coffee bean) I get a little cup with black bitter sludge and a foam on top that is about 1 mm thick. Is there supposed to be more of the foam and less of the liquid? Should I be asking for something different (like ristretto) instead of espresso in order to get the good stuff? What the hell is a ristretto anyway?

WOW! That does not make me want to buy anything. In fact, I may avoid the coffee aisle so I don't see that creeper. Yuck!
