Solid deal on the OXO Barista Brain. It’s an all around good coffee maker and is incredibly attractive. Every time people come over, I get asked about it. I have one small quip about it—I wish it didn’t drip when the carafe is removed. I suppose that is an issue with every coffee maker though.
I purchased mine during Black Friday last year for about $130 along with the OXO Barista Brain Burr Grinder. I’d say it’s worth going ahead and purchasing at this price. If the discount does drop to $130, you can always buy it and return the more expensive one.
Also, more details about the OXO Coffee Grinder below—I highly recommend that appliance.
