this model is only at williams sonoma, but as far as the same machine, different design (580)...
regular price has been $100 everywhere for a while now... there was a 25% off coupon at staples on black friday making it $75... later there was a $30 off $60 coupon making it $70, but now $64 is the lowest price, so this is a great deal
the pods were on sale at walmart for $5 per box, $4 for the milk pods, i posted the deal but nobody seemed to care... otherwise i have gotten them for $6 per box using the $30 off $60 staples coupons, and starbucks clearanced out the christmas blends for $6 per box, so there are sales to be had
my machine broke around 6 months after i had it, sent it into starbucks, they replaced it and gave me a free 12 pack of pods... it was a brand new machine, not a refurb... and the new model fixed the pod holder problem, so that its just a solid cup and doesnt make a mess like the 2013 model, which had holes in the bottom of the pod holder
as far as taste, the coffee is almost identical to a k-cup... the espresso is good and you can press the button twice to get a double shot (they are made for this, as the expensive machine has a 2 shot setting)... i personally think the milk pods are gross, but i have had 10 people try them and all of them thought they tasted great
if you buy the mocha powder and syrups, you can make most of the starbucks drinks with this machine, the 2013 model didnt tell you this, but the book in the 2014 model tells you what you need to make most of the drinks
my recommendations: guatemala antigua espresso, sumatra coffee, tribute blend coffee (seasonal)
i should be able to answer any questions if you have any, let me know
