I was also at Sonoma. You can spend almost any amount you want to spend on small electrics... like say coffee makers. How do you know how much to spend to get one that will last a while? I hope to be drinking coffee for 40 years or so. Do I hit Walmart and buy a $20 one knowing I will probably be buying another one in a few years? Do I go to Sonoma and get a new anodized green Nespresso for $200? That could last a while. Or, do I go online and spend $2000 for one that makes espresso and Cappuccino that can make 10,000 cups. That should be plenty. How do people decide?
