The thing that really pissed me off yesterday was that I'd had that other machine less than a year. I bought it around last November to replace my old Mr. Coffee cappuccino machine that I'd had for over ten years when it finally gave up the ghost. Hubby and I use it every day. Since we work very different hours, it's convenient to be able to make one cup at a time. Apparently the fancy French machines aren't meant to be used every day like we do.
So now I am, once again, the proud owner of a Mr. Coffee cappuccino machine.
