    Eek Panic!!!!!!





    In the middle of making a cappuccino this morning and half-way through it stopped pumping. It was all still turned on/had power so I wondered what was wrong - wondered if it was a loose connection like I'd had in the past. A few seconds later I got that nice electrical burning smell so I reckon the pumps goosed!! New pump is £50 so not really worth repairing - so that meant off to do a bit of shopping!!

    Found one I really liked......



    ...auto-everything job, grinds beans etc. - but at £700 I think I'd have my balls removed with a blunt teaspoon!

    Nice one next one down in the range.....



    ...also auto-everything job, grinds beans etc. - but again at £425 I would still be having a blunt spoon attack!

    So settled on this....



    ...no grinder (so I'll just keep using my separate one), the buttons for making espresso can be programmed to dispense exactly the amount of coffee you prefer and the steam frother is a press button job - and at £150 I think I'll keep them intact as well!

    For anyone who likes their coffee, I bought it from http://www.anothercoffee.co.uk/ (link from the Krups site). Very impressed with their service. Ordered at 2pm for next-day delivery, got an e-mail 25 minutes later to say it had been despatched!!

    So until tomorrow I've dug out the cafetiere! Coffee fix, who me?!

    If my Espresso machine broke, I'd have to go and buy a new one instantly. I'm not supposed to drink too much of the stuff, but I need my proper coffee after my dinner. Instant coffee is like kissing your sister after drinking real espresso!

    Can't say I've done that (not having a sister being the main reason! ) but I get your drift!
