Purchasing a built in coffee system and induction cooktop for new construction kitchen. Best brands? Best value? Most reliable? Would love input/experience/suggestions.

We have the Miele CVA 4062 Coffee System and absolutely love it. We looked at other brands, but the Miele is much easier to access inside for filling water, beans, etc. My brother has had one for years, so we knew it made outstanding coffee. The machines are expensive, but for us, it's been worth every penny. We've only had ours since last summer, but no issues with it thus far. I believe my brother has had a couple service calls on his since 2005, and it's still making great coffee!
If you really love great coffee: bad idea
If you value convenience and space efficiency the most: good idea
