Summary: THE unit after two months started to leak from the place where the coffee comes out. I contacted the company (after I sent in the guarantee paper they never called back now the coffee grinder also not working looks nice but is not a good machine.
Summary: This is far the best machine I've ever had..I have made over 50 lattes since Xmas and everyone has turned out perfect!!! The only thing is my frother tip threads is stripped and I had to thread tape it...
Summary: My wife purchased this for me about 1 month ago. After 29 days of use (not even using it every day), the coffee grinder has failed. It just makes a whirring sound as if a gear is stripped inside. The machine itself makes a fair espresso, however I had much better success with my old Breville that lasted 6+ years. Overall, I would say that after years of experience with many different espresso/cappuccino machines, this is by far the worst I have ever used.
Summary: Thus far the machine has exceeded expectations, turning out three cappuccinos, two macchiatos and several pulls of espresso for the office. Machine seems to heat quickly, produces excellent micro-froth from milk, grinds good (to my novice judgement) espresso grind coffee and creates excellent crema. The odd-looking filter holder is pretty weighty and has some sort of pressurization system that they claim helps produce good-quality crema.
Summary: After five years of heavy usage making at least 5 coffees a day I still wonder what am i going to buy if this one finally will be turning to pieces... I tried Saeco ( manual and automatic), Braun Kuerig, Nesspresso and they were good to great in some extent, but the taste of the coffe was not up to par to Ariete Lello. The only problem I had after 3 years of using it got some air into the system, but that was fixed by my neighbor.
Summary: Well, after having the machine for almost two months, it now leaks water and steam everywhere. Try to get it fixed!!! Forget it. No one will work on it, because they can't get parts for it. Warranty is a joke, as there is no place to send it. A big waste of money.
Summary: At first I had trouble getting a good cup of coffee, but I finally figured it out. A friend told me it will be the best coffee I have ever tasted. He was absolutely correct. It has the grinder right there, than you make the espresso, and than I make cappuccino. The secret of this machine is to let it get hot enough and put in the correct amount of coffee. It is so much better than anything Starbucks makes.
Summary: It works great. I just wish the base was a little larger. This would give a larger work space, a place to set the milk as it was steaming, keep the counter area around the machine cleaner and make it all around easyer to clean, use and operate.
