Take Two: Jura UK’s Charitable Auction to Benefit Chichis

As they did this same time last year, Jura’s UK division is auctioning off a pink Ena5 to raise money and create awareness of the UK’s Breast Cancer Awareness month. The auction is only available to UK residents, so we sadly can’t get our hands on Barbie’s espresso machine stateside.

For those of you who can participate and love (or love someone who loves) bubblegum-hued accoutrement, you can get your hands on this machine by joining in on the bidding through October 29, 2010. And what feels better than getting an awesome superautomatic espresso machine while also contributing to a good cause? Little else, especially when that cause involves keeping the world filled with bountiful chichis!

Learn more about the auction, the charities it benefits and how to participate on Jura UK’s website.

Crew Review: DeLonghi Magnifica ECAM23210B Compact Superauto

In the newly inaugurated War of Petite & Powerful Superautomatic Espresso Machines (okay, it starts now, actually), DeLonghi has proffered it’s champion: The Magnifica ECAM23210B Compact. If you needed more proof, this little dude and/or dudette furthers the case that highly cute and highly functional are not mutually exclusive.

Watch Gail give us her usual rundown on the ECAM23210B, including her trademark latte — sadly, artless. :(
