I've never been a coffee drinker, but this week in Miami has changed that, tried Cuban coffee and now I am hooked

This is #1 on my want list right now: http://www.williams-sonoma.com/wsimgs/rk/images/dp/wcm/201039/0004/img46m.jpg
and it happens to be right in your own back yard!
Hand made and individually tested in the Netherlands, the Moccamaster coffeemaker brews a perfect cup of coffee in only six minutes. A copper heating element ensures water stays at the perfect temperature from the brew cycle’s beginning to its end.

* Perfectly synchronizing brew time, grind and temperature, this fast, consistent machine quietly produces one of the best cups of coffee in just 5 to 6 minutes.
* Special copper heating element keeps water temperature at 195–205F throughout brewing for optimum flavor and less bitterness.
* An innovative 9-hole spray arm disperses the water over the entire grind for a remarkably even soak prior to extraction.
* Copper lining along the spray arm keeps the water temperature consistent throughout the wetting stage.
* To ensure a precise coffee/water contact time, a cone-shaped brew basket funnels the grind to the perfect bed depth.

I think somewhere around 98% of other household coffeemakers only get the water to maybe 180. I couldn't swing the coin on the above Technivorm when we bought our machine before the fire so we went with a Capresso machine that would get to 195 during the brew and verified it with a thermometer. Our old Cuisanart only got to 165. Does make a difference in the final product.

It's been said a thousand times, but make sure you get the grinder right first.

Miami can get you hooked on cafe con leches in a hurry.
I'll bet most of the machines say "Rancillio" on them if you're near little Havana.
