Have any of you coffee fanatics tried the new Clover machine that Starbucks is using to make special brews on Rte 40 in Ellicott City?
CrunchDaddy and I were talking today, and he mentioned that the Starbucks just west of Rte 40 has one of these new Clover systems that make individual cups through a super-precise process. Folks have told CrunchDaddy that the machines can run $15,000, which explains why the coffees are a bit more expensive than your regular cup.
Neither of us has tried the Clover system. Friends had told him that the coffee is exquisite, and you can pick from any variety, including ones that the store isn't brewing for the regular folks.
Has anyone tried this? Is it worth a visit? Click here for Starbucks' pitch. If you go to the Starbucks on Rte 40, walk down the shopping center and check out the Cooks 'n Cakes bakery. Coffee and a sweet sounds like a nice way to relax.
