To repair or not to repair, that is the question. Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to procure the appropriate gasket and repair the aged espresso machine when it is already weary and requires a step-down transformer to use in France since it works on 110V or to put it to sleep and invest a couple hundred quid in one of those new-fangled jobbies.
There's a Promotshuuuuuuuuun going on!
The thing is, I don't think I want to be married to their high-tech bar-coded beverage system. I want to at least have the option of grinding my own beans. On the other hand, this machine does tea and hot chocolate (flavored) and tons of other stuff that I'll never use.
This requres further thought.
